One of these days I want to tear apart a compressor, just need a bit more free time.... and a compressor lol.
It's pretty much an automated process.
Special lathe, just for compressors.
Near the floor.
The compressor stays upright.
I guess they could leave the oil in it.

Send me a SASE and I will send you one.
