The Story Behind my Quincy 325 Compressor

I was originally looking at purchasing a Quincy QT-5 5HP 80 gallon vertical compressor, but came across this QR-25 Series 325 compressor by accident. I was inquiring about some woodworking equipment and a compressor that was coming up on a local cabinet shop auction. I was informed that the compressor in the shop was not going to be on the auction, however….the auction company had informed me that they had a 5HP 80 gallon vertical compressor at there warehouse that they would give me a good deal on. I had inquired some information as to what brand and model it was, and they were not 100% for sure of the make, but they said the pump had Quincy and 325 stamped on the serial badge. And so the story begins….
