    Hi new on here needing some advice , bought a wolf dekota 90 litre 14cfm compressor and a marksman impact ,problem is a cant get it to buzz off a wheel nut ,done abit of research and took the first small regulator off and plug it in but still no use :( the main reg is bolted to the tank with the pressure switch, see people say take the supply straight from the tank ? Do a remove the plug on the side of the tank and try tap into that ? Thanks in advance Vinny

    plugs and sockets for the other end using whip tail or direct plug in to airtool and a full pressure outlet on tank with a ball valve and c plug for high volume use without restriction

    Only be using it for the impact wrench for now so was thinking of fitting a 1/2 bsp tee with a 1/2 snap off body on either side then 13mm hose and a 3/8 pcl at the tool end and just use the regulator on the pressure switch to set it to 119 maybe would that work ok ?

    I have a Clarke impact gun and found it useless. I even tries piping up with 25mm hose and it was still useless

    Not if the guns useless. I tried bigger hoses etc before ditching my Clarke one and found it made no difference. The gun I use at work uses 8mm hose and it never struggles. The hole workshop is only piped in 8mm
