    I just recently purchased the one gallon tank version of this compressor. When I first got it it seemed to be very very quiet but now that it is getting used on a daily basis, it seems to me that it has gotten just a tad bit louder.

    No where near too loud to talk over, in fact I still use it while wife is in living room watching t.v. It just seems a little more louder than usual.

    Have any of you experienced this?

    Is the airfilter clean? Maybe it's just your imagination and you get use to the sound.

    I think the vibration tends to loosen the plastic housing over the motor, at least on mine...I'd say it went up a couple Db at most, but it's still my preferred compressor.

    Yeah, if you get bored google ‘bundy bear ads’
    Stereotypical aussie humour and behaviour :)

    They do awesome liqueurs too. Coffee & Choc liqueur is worthy of the gods :)

    Yes typical Aussie humour.. love it. I do like Kevin Wilson, Hoges of course and I have the Barry mckenzie movies from the 70's which always make me laugh. And even though it's not humour I have Stone, Classic Aussie bikie movie.

    and then there's me.... a pommie with an Australian upbringing ! :confused:
    stiff upper lip and dry sense of humour with a healthy dose of Aussie larakin :D
    I don't know if its available on the web, or if you've ever checked it out but the 'paul Hogan show' is a funny watch. or even 'kingswood country'
    Political correctness has killed off a lot of laughs in shows these days

    I wonder if the Original poster, Justin is still with us, maybe he's knocked himself unconscious when he facepalmed himself because we derailed his thread, or maybe he's rolling on the floor in laughter lol

    Always liked the Paul Hogan show and his mate, well he makes me laugh just looking at him. Yes sadly political correctness has killed pretty much everything. I'm careful what I say but definitely NOT PC especially when with mates.

    The original poster Bogie should be proud we have threadjacked him and feel part of the OAF family
