Question how can i make a water heater into a a.c. tank?

have 2 small air compressors in my shop. tanks are 10 gallon i think ( the kind with a horizontal tank on wheels with a handle)anyway i have 2 filters wall mounted and i still get alot of water to my tools when i use a tool with high rpms and the compressor has too run constantly to keep up the demand.
ok my question is can i pipe both into an old hot water heater to act as a 50 gallon tank?
the one i looked at is rated at 150 PSI and both compressors are regulated at 120 PSI.
any suggestions on how this can be done or some other cheap(note cheap)alternative ?
