Re: My "Lean-To" Addition Finally - Pic Heavy

Sorry to bump up an old thread but I was curious how this turned out and also had another question.

How did they tie in the top board that's attached to the back of the garage? Is it ok to just...

Re: Black pipe 1/2" or 3/4"?

I didn't check the price of copper but when I was at Lowes the 3/4" 10' stick was $12.91 and the 1/2" 10' was $10.62 so very little difference in price. Of course they have pieces that are shorter...

Re: Black pipe 1/2" or 3/4"?

Every time I blow out my tank valve there is about a cup or so of water and it's pretty nasty stuff. If I just blew it out on the ground it'll be everywhere, sprayed all over the walls, and just a...

Re: Black pipe 1/2" or 3/4"?

There are plenty of folks here on GJ that recommend copper. For me I wasn't interested in it due to cost and its more involved to assemble. There is certainly nothing wrong with going that route. ...

Re: Black pipe 1/2" or 3/4"?

I'll check the valves before I buy them but chances are they will only be on the drop legs below an air chuck to drain the water out. I'll probably put a barbed nipple and a hose in the bottom part...

Re: Black pipe 1/2" or 3/4"?

There was a thread on sealants that I found on here that discussed the different types. I'll probably use some flavor of pipe dope and not the T. Tape I've used in the past for brass fittings.

Re: Black pipe 1/2" or 3/4"?

I was learning that last night when I was doing some reading on here about how folks have assembled their air systems. I looked at the sticker on the piece of 3/4" that I bought a few days ago (for...

Re: Black pipe 1/2" or 3/4"?

I would agree with you but the space is uber small. I ran a few quick numbers and assuming a total of 50 added feet of 3/4" line would only net me ~1.14 gal of added capacity.

Re: Black pipe 1/2" or 3/4"?

The black pipe just makes sense for the short runs I'm going to make. I looked at some of the air line kits and I would have a lot of hose left over and still have to buy a few drops and pieces...

Looks like it's 10.3 cfm at 135 psi. I think my Reelcraft hose reel is 3/8"

Re: Black pipe 1/2" or 3/4"?

Yes I suppose that's what it was for. It's the same black pipe that folks use for air lines that you can get at Lowes or similar.

Re: Detached 34x30 in WI

I really like the high bay side of this. Especially since from the outside it just looks like a normal additional garage door. Interested to see you finish this side out and how the lift fits in...

Re: GFCI breaker tripping with Plasma cutter

That was sort of what I was thinking but I wanted some confirmation. I went back and double checked the breaker size to what the plaz is rated for and they match up (20A) so that's not the issue.......

GFCI breaker tripping with Plasma cutter

This may be one of those 'duh' moments that I wasn't aware of but when I moved into my new garage I wired up 2 separate circuits on dedicated GFCI breakers. Each set of plugs is mounted to the...

Re: What to use on bottom half of inside of garage?

What about galvanized roofing metal. You can either have a roofing place cut it to the length you need and then just screw it to the walls and cap with angle or a 2x.

Re: Window unit recomendations

I've also noticed that the 12k btu Frigidare units seem to advertise that they'll cool up to 640 sqft but most of the other brands of the same output cool 500-550. Why the spread? I know that...
