Tractor Supply, Northern tool or Surplus Center will have hydraulic hose, just order the size and length you need with pipe thread ends and you will have a hose that is cheap, easy to install, rated for an excess of well over 1000 lbs and will last forever! Probably more than one place locally that will make them for you too, the local Orilley auto parts makes them here.

Was reading through another forum everyone is familiar with and came across
this.

Not that I would try what he did with used compressors, but it seems it would work well with new, out of the box tanks.

I am going to use copper tubing to run from compressor to the air drier. Then to a hose reel. Probably about 40 feet or so. I can never seem to get pipe threads to seal in the orientation I need them to be. I'm more comfortable soldering copper. Does the type and size of tubing matter?

I run a siphon, pressurized and large bead blaster with this setup, no air dryers or dessicant canisters, just pipe.

The diagram shows a filter, is that only for painting?
BTW I've seen your diagram before and was VERY impressed by your web site
