    LMAO wow... I'm starting to feel like my compressor is inadequate... :thumbsdown:

    My gf complains about the noise anyway, might be a good excuse to upgrade to a bigger, quieter model lolol!

    Ahhhh, that's where it gets a little tricky. He's as loud as a loud thing in an echo chamber in loud town, loud county, loud land. But he only gets excited when he's pumping, then there's hours and hours of gentle blowing.

    We use a compressor at our "shop". Between the compressor running and the generator that powers it... OMG! You have to drive down the street just to hear what somebody is saying! I have a few ideas on how to make mine quieter- just gotta get money and time at home to try it out!

    I wholeheartedly embrace tbe metric system- its a very convenient excuse to justify the purchase of more tools :) But hunny... I need these to fix the car!

    I do know someone who dropped out of college because they refused to learn the metric system :eek:

    Notice I managed to keep it out the gutter ... But I have been told 9 is fine LOL ....
    But I have a 250 gallon tank that runs everything in the garage from the lift to the air tools But that is not portable so I use a silent air 50 for airbrushing.
    But I do have the plans drawn up for my barn/paint shop so I can have the tractors brought here. Seems I get more business from the local farmers then anyone else.

    You can make a diy tank with pvc piping, 8" diameter and you stack three to make a few gallons of stored air.
