Where was this a month ago when I replumbed the air in my shop with 8 20' sticks of black pipe?

My son did get a good lesson in pipe-fitting though and our Rigid pipe threader got a good workout!

Northern has had a system like that for many years. Way overpriced of course. Would be easy to plumb a shop like that though.

If I do anything to my shop it will be galvanized pipe, but I saw it
and thought I would pass it on, I had not seen that kind of system
before that I remember. My thought would be what happens if you
crush a line?

Seems to be an overpriced garden hose.

Whats the pressure rating of an Industrial garden hose?

175 pounds working pressure. I have never used the stuff but it does look interesting. The same company offers aluminum pipe versions but the price is even higher.

Anyone looking to research it, a few members over at plasmaspider.com have ran this for their setup with plasma cutting. I gave it some thought.
