220 Needed

Hi guys I have just recently started a project of re-painting my car. I have a large 220 volt compessor that is wired in my garage. The problem is I need it at my Grandmother's garage since she has a nice double bay garage with lots of lighting that would be perfect for painting. My question is I need to move my compressor to her house and need some way to wire it. Is it possible to run 220 without re-wireing outlets. Like mabye grabing to breakers from the garage and combineing them. Any help would be much apreciated.

I do not recommend any solution like you envision.

The answer is that they do make devices that will generate 220 from two different recepticle outlets. However, the recepticle outlets need to be on different circuits, and different halves of the incoming service. They are also current limited.

What are the current requirements for this compressor? I would recommend borrowing or renting a generator to generate the power you need.
