looks good poncho

is that a tire changer i see in the bottom picture? is it anything like the one they sell at princess auto for $90? canadian tire charge me around $50 to put on 2 tires onto rims and dispose of 1, with that kind of prices i think i might have to buy my own tire changer.

Yes, it is a tire changer........I got it from the local high school, when they got a new one. I was dropping my daughter off at school one day, and there it was in the garbage........................

Hey CC...Nice idea on the compressor with mounting it on the wall. Let me ask this though. How much vibration do you get or do you have isolation pads between the compressor and the metal framing. I would think the compressor would echo into the house moreso with it mounted on the wall due to vibration thru the studding. That is if the garage is attached to the house. Great use of space though none-the-less

Kevin,

I agree. If this is an attached garage, the rest of the family will not like the noise.

The best way to go is to build or buy a premade storage shed, get a 220V panel for it, and put the compressor in there. Pipe the air back to the garage with 3/4" schedule 40 PVC.

Down here in Texas, it is sure nice to get the heat generated by a compressor out of your work area. But the best thing is getting rid of the noise.

I have done this in my last 3 houses and would never consider having a compressor in my work area again.

Roger

If you noticed my location where I live you will see I live in Malta Europe. Our houses are built of stone (lime rock) and not wood or bricks. So a 9" thick wall won't vibrate like a wooden one. The noise is still there as I live on top of my garage

My (errrr, used to be) Garage

My girls are getting older and want to hang out with their friends now so I let them use my garage. Soon as they are out of school it reverts back to Dad. Here are a few pics along with my bench.

Hey Gator...you want your garage back? When they have all of their friends over and are having a good time laughing and cutting up, just walk out in your skivvies and fire up the air compressor. Or just start rummaging thru the toolbax every half hour or so. You embarass them enough pretty soon they will work their way back into the house for privacy Mission accomplished, Garage back into your possession.

Funny!!

Kevin...That would do it...but I would never here the end of it. I could just tuck my pajama shirt in then pull my pajama pants to my chest...That always sends them running to mom!!! I have been working on my steering column on the bench and with some of the "smell" it creates has run them out for a few hours. I kinda like the smell of grease......

garage

I've tried to post my shop before but couldn't get pictures to upload. I think i've got them small enough to work now so I'll try again. Its 26x40 dug into a hill 4ft with 10 ft 2x6 walls so i have almost 14ft inside.I put sissor truses over 14ft of it so i have a loft that i can walk around in above that part for parts storage and a place to my upholstery work. The area under it will be my paint booth when done.
