RAPIDAIR Compressed Air Piping System

RAPIDAIR Compressed Air Piping System

1171 days ago by redryder | 9 comments »

If you like compressed air plumbed into your shop, this might be for you. I saw the Rapidair compressed air piping system advertised in Woodcraft as a new product and thought it sounded interesting. I like and need to use compressed air in my woodshop for nail guns, air tools and cleaning. I have been working on a remodel and expansion to my shop and I was going to put in compressed air anyway so I thought I would give this a try. The Woodcraft price I paid was $139.99. Y...

Turns All Your Nail Guns Almost Cordless

Turns All Your Nail Guns Almost Cordless

2326 days ago by Thuan | 11 comments »

I realized that my air compressor was too big and noisy for the little amount of time I use it, so I traded it in for a new systems that works very well for the the little work shops. Lowes’ came up up with this neat CO2 regulator that powers most pneumatic nailers. This unit with the 20 oz CO2 canister can shoot 600 16 gauge brads or 1200 pins. This is the same system that paint ball guns use, so refills and extra tanks are readily available. The kit cost around $100 at Lowe’s an...

Porter Cable Air Compressor

Porter Cable Air Compressor

1957 days ago by JayDee | 10 comments »

I replaced my old Husky air compressor with the one shown. This model is much quieter with twice the horse power. It is a two stage, oil free compressor with a 25 gal. tank. I find the whole unit is built much better than the Husky I had. I brlieve it was worth the extra money. I also ran about 60 lin. ft. of hard air lines with three drops. Each drop has a petcock to release condensation build-up and a quick disconnect. The air lines cost me about $200.00 in materials and about 7 hours labor...

I BADMOUTHED THE WRONG COMPRESSOR

I BADMOUTHED THE WRONG COMPRESSOR

2324 days ago by jockmike2 | 21 comments »

A while back I gave a negative review to this 2-in-1 brad / stapler with compressor, here on Lumberjocks. I was recently contacted by the “Director of Product Developement at Stanely Bostich.” I Quote, ” Your post regarding your frustrating experience with our compressor just came across my desk. First, I would like to apologize for the inconvience and frustration this problem caused you. For a short period of time, the valve plate was out of our specification which could le...

STANLEY BOSTICH - CAP2060P CONTRACTOR COMPRES. W/ 23 GAUGE PIN NAILER

STANLEY BOSTICH - CAP2060P CONTRACTOR COMPRES. W/ 23 GAUGE PIN NAILER

2260 days ago by jockmike2 | 14 comments »

I blogged about this when it arrived by UPS, but have not had the chance to use it until now due to medical reasons. Luckily lately I’ve been able to do a little something in the shop and had the privilege to use my new Stanley Bostich Compressor. It is everything that Gary Blanchette said it would be and more. I can’t say enough about this man and his public relation’s skills, but he delivered on every promise he made, and that is exceptional in this day and age. I e-mailed...

JacPac CO2 Compressor - Very Good

JacPac CO2 Compressor - Very Good

1923 days ago by CharlieD | 13 comments »

Recently, I bought the JacPac CO2 portable compressor product and it sat in my shop for a couple of months before I used it. I like it a lot and will use it a lot… going forward. It is very handy when you have to do work outside a location where you have a compressor or one with no electricity. I took it to a house where I needed to finish up a small job. I took my Bostitch 15 gauge angle nailer and 18 gauge PC. I took the 18 guage because I thought it might not drive the 2 inch ...

Great & Quiet Portable Belt Drive Compressor

Great & Quiet Portable Belt Drive Compressor

1818 days ago by Cato | 9 comments »

When I discovered that my loud old direct drive unit would not supply enough air to run my new framing nailer I started searching for a portable belt drive replacement with a 4 or higher CFM @ 90 PSI, which is supposed to be adequate for framers. I wanted a belt drive because I knew they were quieter, and I couldn’t stand the noise of my old one. I searched on the web and found this compressor to be highly rated by contractors, and it was supposed to be very quiet with plenty of pow...

RapidAir - it doesn't get any easier than this

RapidAir - it doesn't get any easier than this

1161 days ago by Loogie | 7 comments »

For full coverage of this install, please see my blog post on the subject. I decided to go with the RapidAir system due to it’s advertised ease/speed of assembly. I ordered the Master system from Rockler with one manifold, two outlets and 100’ of tubing. The system was a breeze to install with no leaks at all. It is very flexible, easily modified and maintenance free (so far). I couldn’t be more happy with the system. I just wish they sold the tubing in lengths less t...

A big step up ( with a few nice extras)

A big step up ( with a few nice extras)

1141 days ago by sawblade1 | 6 comments »

Good evening LJ’s, 1. It came with an air hose2. Dual couplings 3. Goodies, Goodies,Goodies A few more of the great features are that it is oil free No oil to maintain, the controls are up front and easy to use, moisture drain is easy to use and operate, and the air ratchet, impact gun, and hose seal the deal. Out of the box the finish is nice and the overall quality is great but where this excels at is with my HVLP gun Although it is labeled for occasional use with spray guns I don...

Rolair JC10, super QUIET! compressor

Rolair JC10, super QUIET! compressor

991 days ago by Eric | 13 comments »

If I had one word to describe this compressor, it would be QUIET! This is a 1 HP, super quiet, oil-less, single stage, two pump, 115 volt, 8 amp, that runs at 60 dB! It runs one nail at a time with no problems. I have used it from framing, finish work and wood working projects. Not much else to say. Did I mention it is QUIET? It is a little pricey, compared to other compressors but is worth it in my opinion. Eric
