Sure have been enjoying my 80 gal 2 stage I R comp. Didn't need this big of one but hey I wanted it. Have used it a bunch, but still haven't used the media blaster I got.
Can't eat it and can't take it with me so I may as well spend it. :thup:

I have compressor envy. Annoying waiting for my single stage to catch up to my air tools.

Congrats, John! A big compressor is a must have, IMO. When I started my build I had only my 21gal vertical HF special. Media blasted my frame using that. Took 16 hours and used way more media than it should have. Then a friend gave me an old Swan 220v direct drive compressor with a rusted out tank. Scored a 60gal tank from a Husky that had a bad compressor, for $100. Mounted the Swan on the Husky tank. Man, what a difference! No more waiting for air. :wink:

Sounds like U scored :thup:

I wish it were $$$ but instead I am compressor rich :lol: Have a 26 gal vert Husky the I.R. replaced. Have my late father's 20 gal horizontal, looks like 3 or 4 comp put together to make 1, but it works good. 2 horizontal Campbells, a 20 and a smaller one. Also a 20 gal horizontal gas compressor I got in a trade. I need to get rid of some more of my pack rat stuff. :lol:
