You may be fine, but something concerns me about have still tank pressure at the house, and full tank volume... If you have a rupture, the whole tank will dump at once.

Yes the relief valve and the pressure switch are still there just the output regulator and gauge have been removed.

I guess that tank probably tops out at 125 PSI - not one of the big 165 or 200 pound tanks. I was saying that if you have the large opening (no regulator), and you have a problem with the soft line, you could have a rupture with the soft line and have 200 PSI of air pressure flying around the end of that hose - that will fling that hose around wild and hit you or damage other things...

But, since the regulated pressure and the tank pressure just aren't that far apart, you're not really risking that much more.

My tank pressure is 150 psi and the max on the line going to the regulator is 300 psi so i think im safe.

I was finally able to get my workbench built yesterday and im quite happy with the way it came out for only a couple hours work and beer drinking lol.

Also bought a new bench 6 inch vise and added a slave tank to my compressor for more air volume.

The little 5 gallon tank is only temporary until i find a 20-30 gallon.

Now i have to reorganize everything in there which will probably take longer then it did to build the bench lol.

Thanks man!!

Added a piece of sheet metal over the main work area to protect the wood and a ball valve to shut off the slave tank to the compressor so i don't have to fill it unless i need the extra volume of air.

I like the sheet metal idea.

I did a head gasket on a friend's Accord this summer, he did the unbolting while I directed 'what' to take off next. I go back inside to watch my girls and he said he's done, head is off.

Go out out to take a look, freak'n head sitting on my wooden work bench, dripping oil. Heads bolts laided up there, dripping oil. Worst off, the slack ass used my shop vac to remove the oil by the head bolts... look over at the shop vac and the hose has oil dripping out onto the floor.

I was real mad,,, the only words that kept coming out were: Dude - respect the garage... Dude - respect the garage... Dude - respect the garage... Sorry about the rant.

again, nice set up.

Oh, I DO know this type and, hopefully he has never "Helped" you again!

Despite having waaay more tools than I really need. I am sort of like a shop store with a rep that if I don't have the tool, it probably doesn't exist. I know who to lend tools to and they pretty much all know how I expect to see them returned.

Having a easily replaceable work surface is a must for me due to the fact that im pretty heavy handed at times when im working on stubborn or messy projects.

Once i get a lag bolt long enough to mount through the metal then i can ground my mig welder to the bolt so then the metal parts to be welded don't have to be clamped to the welder ground.

So i had this old rusty metal shelf leg that i never threw away and was about to do so but when i was looking at it was like what could i make out of this?

After i sandblasted it clean and cut a few notches this is what it became.





Its not a breakthrough i tool technology but its very functional and all it cost was 30 cents in sand and $10 in electricity lol.
