Yo HAP!

Pls elaborate on the second compressor. I am curious on what that PVC like pipe that is connected on the blue hose. What is that?

Thanks.

Rob,

that was my prototype desiccant dryier design. The final version is the same concept except it is made out of 2.5" galvanized pipe with a 2.5" glass port on each end from MSC that I can monitor the color change as I use it. Works awesome and I find that I only have to reguvinate the desiccant about every 6 months. I run a blast cabinet, air/hyd press, powder coat sys and your typical air tools. The final one is mounted on a verticle plane. Oh yeah, and I added a small refrigirated drier I got off of CL to run my Darex end mill sharpener.

Here is my new find a Quincy 251CP80VCB, 5 hp, low, low hours, 2006 model. Paid $800 for it. Is that a fair price?

In addition to my old reliable speedaire is this small unit that I picked up at a garage sale for 40 bucks. It's really unique - has the motor and pump in the same cast housing. It's so quiet you can hardly tell it's running - everything is mounted on springs.
The company is Copeland - maybe a dental compressor? I saw one almost like it on Ebay.

Picked up a "new" Compressor a few weeks ago. it would build pressure but takes a very long time. the last owner bought it used in 82. it is a http://www.saylor-beall.com/home.php

We got new valves and gaskets and got the valves out yesterday, they were caked up with sanding dust. Hoping to get it back together this weekend.

Hades, I scored one similar a while back, same game, I fixed it up a little, caked also from body dust. I use 2 units, the old clunker (actually both) ha,,, but the one like you have is the secondary or high demand unit. It rarely runs, its a backup mostly and additional air storage with a pump and motor on it. Got a big tank, I set the kick on slightly lower than the kick on the main, if system air goes lower than that on it comes, mainly with a little sandblast or blowing underground pipe out, occasionally it comes on if a guy sands or wire wheels long enough or multiple user, etc.

Right now we don't use a lot of air, I run a air screwdriver a little and a small impact. But I am getting ready to add bedlinners to my main business and want to have this ready when that is.

I have a 125psi craftsman and a 155 CH Iron force, and will pair the "new" unit with one of them, Looking like the 155 unit. as the Craftsman is pressureizing the compressor case and may not have much more life in it.

I just got this Sanborn, have not had the chance to use it a whole lot yet.

Behind it is a 60 gallon Cman tank from 1997 (complete with a blown up
oil-free pump).

I have the two of them hooked together, it does take a little time to fill up...but once full, it seems to be good for quite awhile. With 120 gallon capacity, it better be Right now they are connected with rubber air hose, but maybe later I'll set up some manifolds and plumbing. One thing at a time.

That's a lot of air you have there now and you didn't pay the price for a 120 gallon Air Compressor

Default Crap, just scored another Kellogg 331

I wasn't looking but it was for a fair price against a customer's bill. Not that I needed it, I already have a 331 undergoing top end overhaul. I am a case-study in how tool and machinery collection can become an addiction...Athol this, Champion that, Quincy this, Prentiss that...Reed this, Dayton that...I already had too many vices, now too many compressors...officially. Maybe? I gotta get some pix.

Yeah buddy! That was the idea: big time air on a small time budget

Is that an IR filter and regulator? How are they mounted, any problems with them?
