Air Compressors
« on: December 27, 2019, 10:53:10 PM »
Hot dog vs. pancake.

Everyone knew I wanted an air compressor, and I got two.  Which one would you keep/return?

DeWalt d55140

or

Craftsman CMEC6150

I'll move this to hobbies later on tonight.

Craftsman 6 gal.

That's embarrassing.  Looks like Josh Duggar when his parents asked him to babysit.

Both will run nail guns and air up tires. Neither will do anything more.

The 6 gallon tank is better technically speaking but Keep the one you find more visually appealing.

I've got a Bostic pancake and it's loud as frick. So my advice is try to find out which one is quieter.

Craftsman has been known to make great air compressors for what it's worth.

This.  I had a bostic pancake myself, bought it at a pawn shop when my old Ingersoll Rand died.  It was so loud, I actually took it outside and shot it.  Fuck that thing.

I bought a Campbell hausfeld that was advertised as being quiet.  It’s a no shit deal, that fucker is so quiet, you can stand next to it and talk with it running, and not raise your voice.

I plan to get a big one for my next house, would like a quiet and big tank one. Like the old pulley drive ones that seemed quieter?  Get old one and re-motor it if needed or buy new one?

Also, I want to have sex in and around your mouth. Please tell me you're in central Arkansas so we can meet up.  I'm not hard to find.

Can our Admin change the thread title to Austin Allen's Cock?  If so, then put me down for 10 inches, at least.

A big two stage compressor is great, and they are less noisy than a pancake compressor.  They aren’t really quiet, but most pancakes are ridiculously, painfully loud.

I have an 80 gallon. Not too loud when it is filling but really loud when i drain it.  Sounds like a rocket ship taking off.  Multiple neighbors down the street came outside to see what the ruckus was when I first got it.

I guess it's normal to hear a very slow leak on the fast-connectors?

I bought a double tank DeWalt compressor about 20 years ago.  That thing has been awesome.
