Been there, done that. That's exactly the arrangement (sans auto tire) that I used in high school to pump blood on the perfusion machine I built for a science project.
...we'll learn more by wandering than searching...
It may look strange but try inflation by a car tire with one of those bycycle pumps and that looks just the nuts. It literally takes forever
As an aside I just left Cabin Fever and some of the mechanisms modeled there, many patented, just blows ones mind. I’ve gone every year for at least five years now and always see something new. Today it was a way to automate an old fashion well pump. In this case a 1917 patent pump, that is just a slightly more refined Rube Goodberg machine.
It can be pretty amazing to see some of these inventions.
Wizard69 if you think a car tire takes forever try having a flat in the middle of a field on the rear tire of a frame tractor a mile from the barn. You don't dare drive it on a flat back to the barn so when your 12 years old the only thing you can think of is to walk home get the hand pump use your pocket knife to cut a tapered wooden plug to plug the hole with then spend half an hour pumping the tire up enough to finish the days work.
the guy's innovative compressor is really neat.
