Now it's MUCH quieter working in the shop, not as nice as your shop though (shop envy)


When I get a place of my own someday, if I don't have a large shop, I'd like to pour a slab and build an 'exterior room' of sorts (it would look like an outhouse stuck to a pole barn) for the compressor. Even quieter, and you have more shop space.

My real dad has his big ol compressor in an elevated room above some shelves in his pole barn.

I hear ya - no pun inteneded!

I would rather go outside with it and free the space, better noise levels etc.

But then...

I started thinking about framing and pouring a pad.
Buying all the shed supplies
Building the shed
Insulating and painting the shed
Buying more wiring and conduit
Buying more copper, air lines etc
Moving the freaking thing by myself!

It was too much money/time right now for what little space/quiet I'd gain.

Maybe my next shop....

The room I built for my compressor has the interior walls insulated and the door is a metal exterior door. It's pretty darn quiet in the main room when it is running.

Could you take out a pipe fitting and insert a bore scope into the tank and look for rust pitting?

I suggest replacing the tank. You said the compressor works well, you have a new motor, why not just take the hit and spend $400 for a new tank?
