Question about Air Tools & Compressors
I am looking for an inexpensive way to run an air line form my compressor that is in my basement to my garage it is about a 60 ft distance. i have been using 3/8 hose but i loose a lot of volume over that distance
Three basic methods:
1.Run power to the garage and reclocate the compressor there.
2.Use 3/4" steel or copper pipe run under ground to move the air without loosing as much pressure.
**3. Keep doing what you are doing but...add a portable air tank at the end of the line. I would suggest 11 gallon and add a large diameter 1/2" or 3/4" ID hose that is only 12 feet off of that to reduce the loss of pressure. I even ran a 100 pound propane construction size tank (after cleaning it and refitting it with large diameter pipe) Use a "cross" piple to get air into and out of the tank. Just remove whatever the portable tank has on it and create your own setup. This really works well.
