Echo on the drip stubs -- and the filter -- and another thing, make sure you drain all the water out of the tank either once a week or every time you use it if less often... and plumb the pipe so you can drain water and blow down the piping once every few months -- and your system will last you for years.

Factories than run all kinds of things on compressed air use black iron pipe and it lasts for years. Now we use air dryers but we used to just rely on the filters and a semi-annual blow down.

I think our plant is plumbed with black iron also and it was built in 1973. We use enough air to warrant a 100HP screw compressor. The system was originally set up with a big drier up in the mechanical room. The major difference is that most industrial applications can tolerate fairly low quality air or have the necessary filtering built in to the machines that need it. When building a system where painting will be a regular activity, I'd prefer to be a bit more fussy right off the bat.
I'll probably nitrogen purge and silver solder mine when I do it but I have the stuff on hand because I do a little A/C work.
