Since this thread talks a lot about air compressors, I thought I'd comment on what I did this morning. Needing to sandblast some small bronze parts, not wanting to blast and wait 3 minutes for the air to come up, not having my big compressor yet, I hooked up both my pancake and 1.5 HP portable to the cabinet. It made a big difference! both compressors ran continuous but I was able the blast with only about 30 second intervals waiting for more pressure!

Donald,
Wow! Thanks for the information. It sure sounds like you have done the research and I need to do more. Wanting to stick with a USA compressor, I'll need to rethink what to buy.

Donald,
After your post about where brands of compressors and or their components are made, I did continue my research. Thanks for enlightening me. Yes, there is a "loophole" to advertise "made in the USA". As I believe, all that's needed is to use over 50% USA components and then assemble. here to make the claim. I had my hopes up for Curtis and then Quincy but after direct contact with both, I found out the truth. Both are very good quality and should not be overlooked by anyone wanting to purchase a top of the line compressor but even their best compressors have off shore components. Their economy units are imports. Still wanting a USA made compressor, I've decided on a Saylor-Beall made in Mi. Their distributor is 150 miles away, I can pick it up and they stock the model I'm getting. The cost was within $50 of other top of the line compressors, comes with synthetic oil, a magnetic starter, an auto drain and of course made here. They even have their pump components cast here and then machine them in house. I'll no longer need to hook up two compressors to sand blast and not exceed duty cycles.

The last big purchase (I think!) for my shop is done. I would have loved to get the Saylor-Beall 100% USA but not needing the pressure of a dual stage plus the cost, I settled on the FS Curtis. It's a true 5 HP, maxes at 135 PSI and delivers 16 CFM at 90. What I really like about it is it's a single stage 4 cylinder for the volume and runs at a slow 950 RPM for low wear. At least it's over 50% USA!   



I also got the brazed plate hooked up for the aftercooler/drier. Certainly not the drying capacity of a refrigerated but also without the cost. A decent dryer would have cost more than the compressor.



With my nice cold well water, I'm getting a delta T of over 125 degrees.

Petey, maybe you should get a heated compressor, it would allow you to blow even more hot air then you do now!! ;)


So Chris, no more hot air from me!!

Behind the belt guard. Yes, the rough in isn't the best but, it's within the sight of whoever works on it. As a OSHA 10 hour grad, even without it, I also know that OSHA does allow locks on breakers. when disconnects are not in sight.

Don’t be too jealous Todd- you have to have something to do those 364 days you can’t use the boat.
