In an odd stroke of luck, I got gifted an air compressor from my grandad, it's a vertical 60 Gallon 6.5HP 240Volt Twin-cylinder Oil-free Craftsman sitting dusty in the barn. He's replaced the pump a few times because the pistons busted. He got a good deal on a portable 30-gallon Dewalt compressor and put the craftsman to the side until later, but he needs the space it's taking up. I'm wanting to know if switching to an oil-lubricated pump would get this thing going again for a long while (and if that's even possible), or if there's something else that might be causing the pump to bust. I know he has a dremel, an impact and some other air tools I've glanced but never seen used that he likely used with the Craftsman, but I couldn't tell you if it was used heavily or not as the only thing I ever remember being in his garage was the DeWalt he has now. The thing doesn't look that old, best guess is maybe 5-10 years or less. If there's any way I can get it in working order so I can put it to use I'd like to try it.
