    As it’s getting colder and it’s time for snow tires I’ve stumbled upon this handy compressor my father kept in the basement.

    Herkules is a brand by German DIY store Bauhaus. Their logo uses City Bold in extruded caps, with enlarged EndcapS. I haven’t seen this font being used very often. Eurostile Bold is used for the operating figures as well as for “Walkair” below the logo.
