    You don't state the size of the tank, but it was about a 300 PSI pressure vessel. It will be heavy and may not be worth it even at scrap price.

    As for using a galvanized tank from the farm store,...

    With all due respect to the other poster's experience, I'd still bore it out if about 20 tons won't move it.

    I will pass. That is a #50 Tenthset on a QC (Quick Change) 30 shank. Kwik Switch was a Universal Tool shank that wasn't standard to anything but itself.

    There are three sizes, 38,50, and 62. Which is yours? I'm interested if its a 50 or 62 and its undamaged when you remove the black auxiliary boring bar holder.
