Adjusting Auto Shut Off Pressure

Unread postAuthor: jor2daje » Thu Jun 04, 2009 10:52 pm

Sorry if this has already been discussed, but is it possible to adjust what pressure my compressor stops at, right now it cuts out at 130 and I want 160 maybe 180.

I have a cheap husky compressor from home depot.

No idea on that compressor specifically, but most compressors do have a method to change the shut off pressure. Take off the covering and look for a regulator device, or spring switch. Do you possibly have the model number? That way I could look at manual or something.

sorry bout double post, but things aren't looking too good, I'm hoping its just a saftey thing but its pop-off valve goes at 150, and it looks like the regulator might max out at 135

Chances are that the machine is not made to go above those pressures. This is a hobby where we find safe ways of getting "higher pressures". Make your own pump of some sort or buy one that is rated to go that high.

I have a 10 dollar bike pump that I can get to 200 psi with a little effort. It is a schwinn from wallmart in case you are interested.

I like to play blackjack. I'm not addicted to gambling, I'm addicted to sitting in a semi-circle.

I did this with mine.
Of course your compressor is different, but it might help a bit.
