How to plumb pipe for Compressor

I was on another site and googled this subject for someone and came up with this amazing info. Thought it would be a good idea to post it here.

It really lays out some good info on the subject of piping your compressor.

1948 Chevy pickup
Chopped, Sectioned, 1953 Corvette 235 powered. Once was even 401 Buick mid engined with the carburetor right between the seats!
Bought with paper route money in 1973 when I was 15.

Re: How to plumb pipe for Compressor

Thank you. The article prompted me to do a little more research on the use of p.v.c for air lines. I never realized the danger of that before and I won't be using them anymore. I made them a long time ago and never gave it much thought as it was something I had seen in other garages and I just assumed it was safe. Although I have never had any issues, a bit of searching revealed plenty of first hand accounts of rather catastrophic failures. Oh well, I needed a winter project anyhow.
