My new to 'me' compressor just sprung a leak


I just bought a good looking compressor at a garage sale. (sure was purty one)(and not very used) today first time I used it,she sprung a leak in the bottom end of it. Anyone had any luck fixing one o those?? Wonder how long a metal screw right thru the hole would last??-d-

A pressure container with a hole in it is a bomb waiting to explode. Do NOT attempt to repair it, it could maim or even kill you or someone else nearby.

there is a hole in the bottom of tank ???? sounds as tho the tank was never emptied and that it rusted from the inside out. the tank is shot if it is rusted, replace the tank. BOB
