In this video I show the air compressor station I built a couple years ago for my workshop. I like clean looks in my shop and this compressor station lets me use …

    Nick, what is the model number of the solenoid, I have been wanting to do a setup like this and put it by my light switches in the shop so that I can shut off the air to the plastic lines in my shop when I leave. Thanks

    does the solenoid control a two way valve or why is the pressure falling so quickly when you trigger it?

    Good ideas Nick, but I would have liked to have seen what you did with the other drawers. The reason being, I have a mechanics tool caddy like your’s and need some ideas on how to best utilise it. Oh and on the strength of this video, I subscribed…John

    I meant the drawers on your theatre trolley

    Excellent videos.  where do you get those components and parts to the station?  They are new to me.  Where can I get them?  I am a theater carpenter also.  Where do you work?  City, state?

    Hey Nick, great videos and great ideas! Looks like you send some time making it all look professionally produced. Keep up the good work.

    I like your style Nick, nice and neat. I’m the same way but I rent my place so I can’t build anything like this. Wish I could though!

    That was so cool.

    Great idea Nick. Looks nice and clean as well. I was curious though. With it out of sight and in the basement in an area a little harder to get to, would you be worried about forgetting to drain moisture from it? On my unit, if I don’t power down and drain it when regularly and it sits for a few weeks I can drain about a couple ounces of rusty water which obviously is not great for the life of the unit.

    Can you share sources for the parts,and any model #’s

    Really cool. Would love to have a dedicated space to mess around with a set up like this

    Nick, first, I have to say that I love your work – truly high quality and exhibiting pride. I am a real beginner when it comes to compressors, so, naturally, I have been scouring YouTube for a video to help me with my project, but I can’t seem to find one. Yours is the closest I have found, plus I love the quality of your work, so here goes:
    I recently bought a 6 gallon quiet compressor that I am planning to use primarily to run a pneumatic French fry/vegetable cutter for our kitchen. I have very limited space in my condo, so I thought it would be a good idea to place the compressor in the deepest part of a closet under my stair case (for space saving and noise reduction). I want to mount a wall plate very similar to the one you have in this video to act as the control center for the compressor. My goal for this is to have the access plate be able to control everything including a safety release such as the one mounted on the compressor itself. I guess my big concern is that I don’t know enough about compressors to know whether or not I will be able to accomplish this. I basically want to have my plate have everything yours has, but also have a safety release control and a dedicated ‘push-connect’ line coming out of the plate and running straight to the pneumatic cutter. I still want the other connections to use it to inflate tires and use air tools if I want to. Is there any chance you would be willing to explain to me how to accomplish this? Either way, thanks for posting this great video AND the one with your theatre cart build, which was also Awesome!

    Hey Nick! I have my system almost completely set up, but I would like to create a panel just like yours for my compressor. Can you list the parts of this one and where you got them? Specifically, I am looking for the two gauges, the filter, the regulator, the electric solenoid (unless you know of one that can be mounted remotely from the compressor on the wall panel before the filter), and, most importantly, and all of the quick connect fittings/adapters and cutting tool you use for the plumbing/nylon tubing (those have been the most difficult for me to find on my own, and is the primary reason why I am asking). This may be a silly question, but couldn’t I simply take the gauges and regulator off of the factory compressor and relocate them so they are wall mounted about six feet from the tank, and then, using like a six foot length of hose, connect the newly created wall mounted station back to the compressor where the gauges and regulator were originally? This may be hard to understand with my explanation, so I could post a video of my question if that clears it up. Thank you!

    How often do you drain that compressor of the water at the bottom of it?

  17. John McKenna said on November 15, 2016 2:01 am:

    Doesn’t the small diameter hose restrict flow to your air tools or are they all small cfm users?

    ???purdy. I feel like such a hack now for my airline setup
