Air compressor

Hello Guys,
Hope everyone is doing well.I have been reading the forum as much as I can.
I had to have a full knee replacement on my left knee and I'm doing oK. My Doctor is letting me walk upstairs a little.
My PC is up here.
Come October 23 I go back and have the right knee done. Before I went in hospital my Air Compressor
came in. Got it placed and wired up but not to the magneto.
Today a friend of mine came over finished hooking it up. It runs great. I wanted to run copper pipe but the coast was to high. Maybe buy the time I get to pipe it up copper might come down, I hope. If not I will go with 1inch galvanize pipe.
It will be the fist of the year before I will be able to pipe it up.You guy's take care.
I will read the forum as much as I can, My Doctor dont want me walking up stairs that much.
Kenny G

Put a leaky hose on that air compressor so you get to hear it kick on once or twice a day while you're recuperating. It'll give you incentive to do the physical therapy.

Good luck and get well soon!

Take care of the knees, I got bad ones too...but not that bad. Get a friend to move the computer down stairs so you can post to every thing that comes your way. Why I bet you could get a job with Jon.

Take care and get well soon!

Piping Your Air Compressor

Copper is great, but you may also want to consider Transair Pipe. It is expensive, but can be installed by anyone and can be taken with you if you later move, and can be rearranged as your shop changes or grows. Pretty cool stuuf- only drawback is that the parent company is owned by the French.
