Yesterday I went and bought myself a new toy. It's something I've wanted for a long time. I bought myself a good air compressor. Not one of those little shitty ones that you can drag around, I have those already and up until yesterday it was all I had. This one is HUGE! Quincy 20 with a 5hp motor. The motor is not one of those little capacitor start/capacitor run things, it's a full size, continues duty, Baldor 5hp. The head is a two cylinder two stage pump. The tank is 80 gallons. Wired it up today and fired her up, WOW! She made 165 lbs in 4 minutes. It's rated at 17cfm at 175lbs. Now I can sandblast without waiting and my 1" impact is now usable. Now to pipe air all over my building. That's next weeks project.
