Basement Compressed Air Plumbing
I recently added compressed air plumbing to my basement's
"shop". The "shop"
is adjoining to the garage, obviously on a lower level than the
garage. A rubber
hose leads from the Homemade Air Manifold (see
its picture here also), to the "bulkhead fitting" (pictured) that I
welded. Inside the basement, it is just 1/4" NPT plumbing
(pictured). I used
regular teflon tape for sealing.
The plumbing includes a shutoff valve near the Homemade Air Manifold (see
its picture here also), which is in the garage next to the Curtis Compressor, a filter and
regulator by Wilkerson ($5
local eBay purchase), and a pressure gauge by Westward (ditto).
I am also including a picture of the Lectroetch AM-15C electric
etcher that has a air motor for automatic operation, which I wanted to
power with this air setup.
