    April…wrong already. Yes, you need to remove any oil for your painting in any professional capacity. However, you still need to FILTER your air as your compressor can and will produce WATER or condensation which will reek worst havoc on fine painting projects.
    See if you can isolate the filter and regulator and bypass just the oiler!

    Understanding woodworking, tools, and safety go hand in hand, I would strongly recommend using a safety helmet when your feet leave the ground. One slip and you could bust your pumpkin open. Be safe…

    You said you were going to put a “T” in your line for a paint sprayer so you dont spray oil with your paint. If you bypass the water separator, water will be in your line then. I have thought about this on my setup and I think if you drain the oil out of the oiler so oil can’t be picked up, you should be ok I believe. You can try it before you go putting in T’s. Just a thought.

    I use to have a bodyshop and water is your worst enemy you might want to put anther water separator in your T line but place it at least 5 feet from the main line from your compressor to collect moisture better. Love the system of fitting landline seems simple enough. Good job and be careful.

    Thanks. The two last things for a perfect shop, making it dust free, and having a good air system. I just ordered that same system, and i just watched your other video on modifying the HF dust collector. I love that you could be speaking to someone with tons of experience, or none at all. Super nice delivery, great video’s. Still can’t for the life of me understand how you get any ‘dislikes’, *sigh* but, Internet. Thanks again, will continue to check out you channel.

    I did not read all 600+ comments, but was wondering about the noise level outside. The noise level inside was definitely reduced. What do your neighbors think of the noise level when the compressor runs during the evenings and/or during the weekends? Are you going to build a compressor shack, or something similar, for reducing the outside noise?

    another thing to do is occasionally bleed the tank on the compressor. The more humid the climate the more often you should check it.

    Like your videos…been a subscriber to your channel for sometime but use a ladder when working at heights. Be a good example of safety to your viewers.

    Those hose reels can be fuckers for trapping moisture, it could give you problems later.

    if your painting you still might want the filter part of that to keep the water out the lines when your paint. i have a filter i put quick connects on that is attach be for my hose when i paint. just a thought?? nice job though!! only thing i did is use metal water pipe instead of the hose.

    Copper lines work great too

    You made a wise choice on the 1/2″ kit. I installed the 3/8″ kit, and the compressor has to work quite hard to supply air if you’re using much of it. Were I to do it over again, I definitely would have gone with the 1/2″ kit like you did.

    you’ll probably need a filter for your sprayer line too to keep condensation out of the line
