Ironman: Thanks for the link! Tons of useful info in your thread!

milomilo: You're clearly much braver than me, even sounds OSHA approved.

mccutter: I'll make sure to have a drain at the bottom so I can easily empty out the crud and water.
I will have a cooling sling between the compressor and tank as well so hopefully not too much gathers in the tank.

Currently waiting for the tank to get delivered then I'll probably make a little project thread in the fabrication subforum.
OSHA is not all it is cracked up to be.

I accompanied Tweedle Dee while he went through our department. The Tunnel kiln had little access doors about 4" square about every ten feet along both sides of the kiln through the fire zones so you could take a look at what was going on. The doors hung loose on a pin across the top and flapped in the breeze. Tweedle Dee looks at me and asks if the kiln is pressurized. At that moment I realized how truly stupid the MF was.

What do you plan for cooling? One of these, or an old A/C fin coil would probably work. Attachment 154547

I haven't really decided about cooling, currently I'm leaning towards a ghetto DIY solution with just a network of pipes basically.
But I haven't researched it very much, maybe there's a better solution.

Working with properties, I can relate to some of the 'inspectors' we've had visiting.

I contemplated making a cooler for my 120 gallon tank, but after I drained the water every two years and only got 2 tablespoons each time I tabled that idea. We have very dry air here normally so it does not seem to be worth the effort.

Do you really need to compress it, isn’t the wind enough, by itself??

Weld him up a large funnel, and mount it like a windmill....

It should ship nicely in a "flat rate box".

Only 5 mph today. Some times it takes quite a lean into it to get to the shop.

Would you settle for a porcupine ?
Saw my first one a year or so ago, ambling down the dirt road near Corry, pa

I thought it must be someone's pet....

Neighbor said they are infiltrating the area.
