Welder advice, Hand tool Advice Shop Tool.This is a section to ask for help/advice on all your tool questions. What welders work best and what shop tools work best, How to use a welder, and any other tools.
Remember if you have tools for sale they should be put in the classifieds.
Exactly, stated same stuff over and over, arguing over the obvious. Black pipe if installed correctly works same as rapid air, granted maxline is what you want vs the nylon cheaper version.
One thing your very wrong on Rick is water, with an air drier namely a refrigerated one you get ZERO water, the cold removes it from the air. Like a stated before I run one daily and get zero water in my lines and its hot a humid here all the time. The desiccant ones work too for the smaller compressors but have to service them.

So the compressor runs up to 120 and shuts off. CFM is 9-10 at 70 pounds, the length of the lines will not be all that much (small house, small basement) but to get the lines off the floor, and one plumbed to the outside of the house in the driveway, will make things much easier. So I think I will go the modest route and use the 1/2 rapid air lines, and get a new oil and water trap.
From there I want to see if I can locate a small retractable hose reel and hang at least one in the basement rafters so I can just pull a hose down and use the air tools without having to have air lines on the floor. Even at 58 I have found that I am not quite as nimble as I once was, lol, and so I want to see if I can avoid tripping and getting hurt.
The basement gets some humidity, so I am also going to change out all of the outlets i installed 25 years ago when I first moved in just to be on the safe side.
So with new fittings, hoses, hard lines, reel, air/oil trap, new pressure cut out switch and electric outlets, that should get me a few more years, lol.
A de-humidifier will also help EVERYWHERE. They can be had this time of year at discount prices.
