    Default Tired of the old compressor taking my floor space



    I was tired of looking at this big thing on my floor so I elevated it. It is just basically a couple of brackets welded on the end of 3" x 4" rectangular tubing I had around. I put a 1 1/8" floor or it to minimize vibration. In addition I used some old scrounged shock absorber rubber parts to cushion it. I turned some special spacers on the lathe to get it the right height.

    The most time consuming part was the electrical wiring to it and the copper lines I am running in the shop.

    Default "Lighter Than Air"

    Now that's innovative. If anyone asks how it got up there, tell 'em "it's making helium."

    Like trying to grab a box full of bowling *****!

    I gotta say, that's creative. Looks like a "mezzanine" where you can work on the motor, or reach down and drain the moisture from the tank?

    The upstairs is a woodshop and you can reach over the balcony to work on it. On the bottom is a tube that connects to an automatic drain. I bought the compressor used, then had to replace the compressor head. I rebuilt the automatic drain yesterday. Now I will see if it works.
