Guys, Just an update. I finally got the pressure control circuit working so that as soon as I switch it on, the compressor starts and then auto shuts off at 30psi. This gives the ball a speed of about 35-40 mph which is about right for junior league baseball. As soon as you fire, the compressor starts again so there's no waiting.
