Re: Air Tool Question
Thanks for the replys everyone. They have been most helpfull. The guage I have on the Reg is after the reduction. The guage on the tank doesn't dip. I am thinking that my solution will be to up the pressure on the Reg.
After reading these replys, and sitting here for a min with my thinking cap on, I have come up with the solution to my problem. I am going to keep my air filter and reg and oiler right where they are.
Right now I have my compressor, and the air comes out of the pressure swith. Then it goes into the regulator that came with the compressor then I have a very short flex line that runs into my filter, reg, oiler, then I run to tools. The first Regulator (the one that came with the compressor is set at 125, the reg on my filter/oiler is set at 90)
I am going to chage it so that it so that from the pressure switch the air runs into a T one branch of the T will run to my filter/reg/oiler set up. (I will set the reg to what ever I need at the time (tool dependent)
On the other branch of the T I will simply put a quick connect. That way when I wan to use my impact wrench for heavy duty stuff, I can hook it right up. With it coming out of the compressor I will have 150 Psi Max. No Muss No Fuss. Any other time I need the wrench I will use it after the Reg. But with this set up I will have the option.
thanks everyone for helping me see the light. [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]
