However , I have a feeling that the frame was purpose built for the compressor . But I could easily be wrong ,

Thanks Nick, sorry I missed the opportunity of having to beg you to post photos.

Appreciated that you are often wrong but in this case think you are right (you had a 50/50 chance Grin) frame does look too narrow to ex skip probably just using the technology & knowledge they already had.

Anyway thanks for posting additional photos, looks like a nice weekend project Wink and useful for filling in a corner

Actually , Gordon , there is a photo in one of the early Narrow Gauge & Industrial Review of a small compressor trailer mounted onto a Rugga skip by the simple task of welding a channel to either side of the skip frame .This is a little project I have had in my mind for some time but until now I have lacked photos of a suitable compressor . I guess I don't have any real excuse for not starting now . But don't worry , I'll find one !
   For me this would be rather more than a weekend's work .
