MarkhamCornoit Thanks for this informative post. 12 Volt Air Compressor has hundreds of applications and can be very useful in many situations for hobby, semi-professional or professional use like as spraying, nailing, inflating, dusting, cleaning, etc.

Hwyhogg Thanks for the responses...all good I like the idea of the junk yard...though lately, those guys think everything is gold ...that's a whole 'nother rant...I did make a couple of horns using the plans I got off ebay. Go to youtube and type in "pvc train horns". The guys name on there is dozerboymiller. I made a couple, and they really are loud...even with just blowing by mouth. I will have to post a video up of mine soon.
Thanks again,

2-manytoyzs Junkyard - Lincoln or Cadillac air suspension compressors work well and are high pressure too. I have 2 wired in together to double the volume. Use 10 gauge wire with a couple of aligator clips to hook up to the battery. I have another hard wired in my RV with a Freightliner air tank mounted on the frame to have constant air pressure on the road.

deadbodyman Those 12v Hf compressors should work fine for air horns...I doubt they would last very long but at twenty bucks there cheap enough to replace every once and a while...I was going to buy two to hook up to my air bag system,they're suppose to pump up to 160 lbs...We'll see.
They might even have the whole air horn system, just use the horns you want..

vicrod I just installed a Viair 325c for an air operated door system for a Bricklin.
It gets a workout but fills the tanks fast. I'm guessing about 6 gallons total tank capacity.
Found good prices with accessories and many choices of different compressors at
