Hello, I'm looking at a Joy diesel, trailer mounted air compressor. It's at least 150 CFM. Has anyone plumbed something like this for shop use? Can I reduce this into a working air volume with a large regulator? Thanks 930

Used to have a Jaeger 125 plumbed to the shop. Didn't use any kind of regulator except at the outlets that required it. Your air system doesn't recognize volume only pressure. I used it to run the bead and sand blasters and had a 22 cfm I used when I didn't need the large volume of air. If you ever get to the place where you need that much air, It'll take at least 1 1/4" air line to handle that volume.

I have a Jaeger with a 6 cylinder also. Engine is at the machine shop for a rebuild. 930
