    I just bought a longer hose... Good idea though, I have the tank off a dead compressor, might put it on wheels and plumb it a bit!

    you're right about the time and hassle about winding hoses up, for pumping my car tyres up I still use a footpump as its quicker and less hassle than unwrapping my air lines to get to the car.

    that's a posh one mines not on wheels I use it for tires and connect it in between the comp and blast pot with c couplings to cool the air and catch water .it works perfectly knobbled the tire inflator from a garage 50 years ago :ashamed:

    So that just goes inline with the compressor BS? Was half following the other thread with it in, looking for ways to get as much moisture out of airline to plasma as I can.

    do you have a reliefvalve in there somewhere?

    That’s neat Brian, the wheels are great idea

    I will be shamelessly copying your design when I get home

    no need for a safety valve it is the same pressure as the comp tank that has one fitted
