    Cool

    I used a hydraulic hose from my comp to my piping one to help with the vibrations and it also has a swivel end so no union is needed...Bob

    I didn't realize you were using uni-strut. You could have gone with uni-strut clamps, but they are more money. Ran mine with those double end lag bolts, all-thread and the conduit clamps.

    If I omit the West and South pipe run(those that don't have lengths noted), it will save some work, money and grief, is that a bad thing?

    It's your shop, have at it any way that makes ya' happy.

    I cut my Superstrut into lengths that allow me to have a clamp in the center and I can use screws and washers in the other 2 holes, for hanging on the joists.
    I'm using the other style clamp (the type that hooks into the strut), to mount on the walls, or top plate

    With the double end lag bolts you probably shouldn't need uni-strut, but if you like the installation...have at it.

    DeVilbiss says to slope pipes up from the compressor, Sharpe says to slope them down, away from the compressor. Which is preferable?

    Below links are to two products that make installing ceiling pipe runs much easier...along with some all thread. The conduit hanger is a bit small as it is sized for tubing instead of pipe, but it will work well with a longer bolt and it's cheap...check your big box store's electrical aisle. The double end hanger bolt is very easy to install with a pilot hole and a screw gun/drill. Vary the length of your all thread and you can easily allow for a slope for moisture to drain down the length of the run.
    Where do you find the hanger bolts?
    My local industrial supply doesn't have them.

    Mine does. I'll stop by in the morning when I get off work and see what the brand name and supplier is.

    Do a web search for either Hangermate or Sammys hangers and you should find all the information you need to either order direct or pass the contact information off to your local industrial supply. Barring all that, if you need the bolts and can get them nowhere else, I'll be happy to forward you the web link to my local industrial supply. PM if you need that link, but it would probably be cheaper to either order yourself or have your supply house do it.

    BTW, I had to drill the conduit hanger for the larger all-thread and add a longer machine screw to hold the larger diameter pipe instead of the conduit in the clamp hanger.

    Thanks, I'm going to Tacoma Screw today and will see if they have them in their Hangermate stock.

    A little late to the post, but I thought I'd throw these sites out there for a good resource. I used these when I put in my garage air system.

    http://www.oldsmobility.com/air-compressor-piping.htm

    http://www.webbikeworld.com/t2/compressed-air/

    I used 3/4" copper (mostly because it had a bunch to start with) and soldered everything except the main connect to the compressor. Turned out really awesome - after a few days when the system is fully charged - I get virtually no-bleed off. I have 3 drops - each with a drain and tee (I think I used 8 total shutoff valves.

    Good luck with your project!
