Airhose Hook-Ups Installed At Various Locations Throughout Shop
Ervin Clark, Oroville, Calif.: Ervin says the best idea he ever had was installing air hose hook-ups at various locations through-out his 20 by 40-ft. shop. They let him plug in a short air hose wherever he needs air.
"I installed 10 1/4-in. dia. hook-ups, including two on each workbench, one near each of two doors, and two at the back of the shop. Live all the time, they run off a centrally located, 150-gal. capacity air compressor connected to an extra 25-gal. storage tank, for a total capacity of 175 gals. The hook-ups are plumbed to the air compressor with Schedule #80 black PVC pipe. The system provides up to 125 psi. Total cost to set up was less than $100, including $3 apiece for the hook-ups and $25 for the extra air tank, which I bought at an auction."
