Air Sharing - 1st post for me! :)

Unread postAuthor: 1000psi » Thu Apr 27, 2006 7:05 am

Hi there, First post on spudfiles! :)

Me and my mates (4 of us all together), all have Pneumatic spudguns and find it a problem to fill up... We only have a 12v one compressor (powered by cigarette plug in the car) and i am thinking of spliting the air...

Check out the attachment - Pros, Cons, Tips or help will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

It would be better and much faster if you and your friends all chiped in about $25 and got one of those small $100 compressors. 1 it'll be faster, 2 it'll be better and provide more PSI, and 3 your going to burn up that little 12v compressor becuase it's not made to run so much, it's made to run a few times for a flat tire.

If you read the directions that came with the 12 volt compressor, it probly said let run for 10 minutes and let cool for 10 minutes. You could allways get tee's and extra lock on connectors and branch off of the line coming out of the compressor.

It is condensation, all compressed air froms condensation/moisture. I have to have a water filter inbetween my air compressor and air tools or it ruins them, makes them rust inside.
