Watch the heat out of those compressors, they'll melt hose right out of the comoresssor.Mounted 2 ARB twin compressors and got them running. Compressors are mounted to the driver side inside the tuffy rear deck. The wiring runs behind the rear seats to distribution blocks. 200 amp fuse on 4 awg runs back to the power blocks. 9 gallon air tank underniether and air chucks front and rear.
Thanks, I'll keep an eye on them. Its high temp hose, I had issues with my york doing the same thing until I starting using this. Worse case I can throw something else in to the junction.Watch the heat out of those compressors, they'll melt hose right out of the comoresssor.
Congrats on the move Nate. I've been away for a while and didn't realize you were looking to move. Looks like a great place and look forward to seeing it progress.I've been working on getting electrical sorted out in what I'm calling "shop build phase 1." Its consists of (5) double gang boxes of 110v outlets split between two breakers and (4) additional 220v outlets also split between two breakers. The 110 outlets are 48" above ground and the 220 outlets are 55" up.
Everyone knows that no matter how well you try and plan or organize a move crap just gets put everywhere anyway and thats what happened with us when we moved in 2 weeks ago. After some shuffling I was able to get both our cars in garages our first night at the house. (Really not that impressive...) After setting up some big costco shelves I was able to clear more space and start to organize a little.
Boxes mounted on the "phase 1 wall."
Second lumber rack up along with my finishing and nuts/bolts bin shelves.
Conduit in with wires and outlets partially installed.
To finish this up I need covers for the 220v twist lock receptacles. Lowes had them for the range/dryer size outlets but those are too big. I can't find them on the HD website so rather than crossing my fingers that they will have them I may end up just going to an electrical supply house at lunch today. I bought all my outlets and breakers for this project (and phase 2 and 3) off amazon and saved about 50% while also getting a better quality product I think. The 110 outlets are commercial grade and I had wanted different colors to match the different circuits but didn't justify spending more for that.
Phase 2 is outlets in the ceiling for costco LED lights and an ambient air cleaner and phase 3 is to extend the outlets from phase 1 to the back and side walls as needed after using the shop for a while. I bought plenty of wire, conduit, and other supplies for both of these so I'll get phase 2 going sooner rather than later.
I've had this old Hazet Assistent tool "trolley" for a while. They've got a cult-like following from German auto and tool enthusiasts, which makes the carts and accessories pretty expensive.
The articulating lamps they make for these are pretty neat but the prices I'd find them for scared me away. Over the last year or so, I've seen two sell for about $700! I know they're rare and all... but that's rediculous.
So, me being me, I set out to find my own alternative. I built my own for about $90 total using a vintage Craftsman articulating lamp that was likely mounted to a lathe. I got some help from @BlueWolfFab with the adapter.
I documented it on my website if you'd like to see the what and how and such: https://tools365.net/hazet-assistent-lamp/
