home made air reservoir

Unread postAuthor: homedepotpro » Sat May 05, 2007 11:07 am

i want to make an inexpensive air compressor/reservoir for refilling my smaller guns and maybe power a cloud
i might use multiple compressors and i will probably add a regulator or two
im not look for great performance but do you guys think it will totally not work, im aware it may take a while to fill the tank to pressure

It will work, but probably not for very long. Those little emergency compressors aren't meant for continuous use, and tend to burn out quickly when used too much.

You definitely need a good fan blowing over the motor and pump assembly, otherwise the pump will die out very quickly. Considerering the complications, it's probably more worthwhile to get one off eBay

yeah i bought the tank and i realized it gives me a lot of air to work with, it will take a while to charge but once at pressure i think it will take a while to empty. i filled up my pneumatic gun and the tank pressure only dropped like 2psi. the small compressors only have 1.5 gallon tanks or none
