Thanks for any advice.
use a 1/2 or 3/4 filter/regulator or you will choke your system.
go to grainger.com
look at the left margin you will see lots of regulators in 1/2 and 3/4. you can also narrow the search by cfm.
don't use the junk at home depot, they are all 1/4 or 3/8.
we have a 3/4 right after the compressor set at 80psi sometimes we crank it up to 100psi. we also have line regulators at the spray booth and a few work stations.
in my home shop i have a 1/2'' high volume regulator/filter at the compressor set at 80psi and then also a plug in regulator for when i need it. my upholstery stapler works best at 25 to 40 psi and my powder coat system requires 10-12 psi.
