my air compressor has developed a leak but the pump and motor are fine so I would like to get a new tank. Does anyone know where to get replacement tanks? One place told me it would be almost as much for the tank as buying a whole new compressor. There has to be a place on the net somewhere that sells a tank by themselves.

If it leaks due to rust, its a bear to repair. However you can wire weld them and it will last, be ready to keep chasing the darn hole that seems to never end.

that is why it leaks... rusted from the inside out, Its just a small leak now but they always get bigger. I have tried repairing them before but never really works that well. I have to hink somehere there is a wharehouse full of tanks waiting to be put together.
