Welp, I'm holding my breath for this to come and breath for me............................................

Saylor-Beall 5 HP Performance Package Two-Stage Air Compressor 17.3 CFM @ 175 PSI, 80 Gallon Air Tank 208/230-Volt, 1-Phase | VT-735-80-1-FP

VT-735-80FP

been learning more about air compressors as of late since my 27 gallon Husky took its last breath awhile ago.

In Conclusion, this will be the last air compressor i'll ever need to purchase.

there's going to be pictures later of mechanical art on the wall to cool, dry, trap, drain, filter and give a lot more gusto to my air tools.

Blow me down or up which ever comes first:lol:

That looks like a nice piece of kit, looking forward to seeing how your cooling and filtering setup looks, all I have is a cheap Clarke water trap on an ancient Clarke compressor, which is probably partly why I don't get great results from my airbrush.

I have only sprayed painted a whole car once, and various projects through out time, for the most part it's pneumatic tools and the tire fills.

been reading so much on compressors of things i never knew they are so far from just plugging some cord in the wall, so not only have i read extensively on all aspects from water, contaminants, drains, traps, cooling, there's so much i read with all the different types of AC's Rotary vane/screw, Pre- lubrication, oil-less  and for me Splash, (found out that oil-less at the most they only have a 3000 hour life on their pumps. Aluminum heads with cast iron sleeves, Cast heads, different types of pump valves, motors, lower RPM for longevity. Can use with Black Iron pipe, Copper (I am using copper) and or aluminum (never use PVC Pipe) What metals to use that are compatible with less galvanic activity and so much other info, somethings I knew already, a ton of things i knew nothing about but all in all it's been quite the exploration and just knowing the fact (learned through The Garage Journal Forum) NO More Box Store Air Compressors) I wanted an air compressor to out live me.

So when shopping i came down to three (and yes there's a few more i had cross examined) but in this order it came down to Saylor-Beall, Champion and FS Curtis)

There's quite a lot of new so called Silent Air Compressors also different ways to silent them if yours is not (Solberg Silencers)

I really wanted the Kellogg American but somewhat hard to find it looked like a Train to me and there logo was so nostalgic ....

any ways, gathering various ball valves, reducers, plugs, nipples and airline fittings, hose reel (been rolling up hoses for yars' now), struts and clamps, filters, traps, air dryer, unions, had some things here already being i do plumbing quite often, there's only a lil electrical to do being there's no plugging this into the wall.

soon as more parts arrive i'll post em' and go over what they are just for fun and perhaps maybe that some of you here can post their air museum mechanical art on here also.

This reminds me of Steam Boy a great story and movie.

When I scroll through the montage pictures of all these random components that you are assembling into something I cant help but hear the A-Team theme in my head.
