Saw this portable compressor stand and decided I had to have some way to move it around rather than tripping around it. I’m now thinking about putting blinkers and reverse on it…..

Looks like a good idea to me. I move mine around quite a bit but it is a wheeled model.

Great idea. Right now mine is on a movable base, but not that fancy. I like that idea. Could you please put a tag on this project? Something like “compressor” so I can find it later for reference.

Keep up the good work.

Nice solution for a mobile compressor – and great design.

we made just a rolly-platform for ours. Never thought of a handle!
The one thing I added was a flip-up piece of wood that props the compressor up for draining.

You need to add a license plate to the back as well :)

I do like the license plate idea, maybe a toll tag as well.

It is a great idea, never thought of it. Head lights are not a bad idea, a few rechargeable lights that you can grab when you need extra light on a project. My old eyes seem to need a lot more light these days.

Great Idea! I was just cleaning up the shop yesterday and found 4 wheels like the ones you used. Was going to toss them. Thanks for the idea.

What we need now is a way to quiet the darn thing down. Mine is so noisy you can’t think straight! Which…gives me an idea for a new forum question!

That is a great idea. I may have to copy that.

Nice idea Fred. I should make one for my compressor too.

Put a Pioneer with some 400 watt speakers and I think you have a cruiser here. Great idea for smaller compressors.

I’m wondering if a ventilated baffle box might be good for the noise. Add some fins and some chrome‚Ķ

Yeah, that’s a good idea. I hate moving my little compressor around. It’s just heavy enough to make me come up with another solution rather than lug it about.
