Re: Finally...a new shop at the house

Okay, I ordered the M7500 kit and a few extra ‘T’s and 2 extra manifolds.

Ryan, how about some pics of your filter & “cooler” setup. Sounds like a good way to keep the moisture under control.

Re: Finally...a new shop at the house

I’m hoping to start the airline install tomorrow. I bought a few extra pieces and parts today so I can hopefully make a good start on getting this up & running. I’ve got (2) 50’ Goodyear hose reels, one on each end of the shop. So, I’ll have a drop for each of those, one for the Tire machine, one for the sandblasting cabinet and one on the 2-post lift. Each drop will have a ‘T’ so I can have an open plug in all the locations. I shouldn’t be hurting for air!

Re: Finally...a new shop at the house

Re: Finally...a new shop at the house

Well, I was suppose to have started last week, but that was an epic fail. Christmas, family, selling & buying a couple of vehicles took presidence.

I finally got around to working on the install today. I ended up adding a 3rd hose reel on the 2-post lift. Ive got to run to Lowes tomorrow to buy a few more fittings and such to complete the install. I will say that I really like the RapidAir pieces and concept. Once I get everything buttoned up (hopefully tomorrow) Ill pressurize the system and check for leaks and such. Crossing my fingers as a lot of the line runs 16 above ground...

Ill snap some pics tomorrow.

Re: Finally...a new shop at the house

Lines are about finished. I did a 1/2 brass T at every drop so I could have an extra line to access. 3 of the four drops have a 3/8x50 reel and the 4th drop is for the Tire machine and the sandblasting cabinet (each end of that T has an extra connection too). I need one more piece of cast iron to finish the lead to the blasting cabinet...I added an additional water separator before the cabinet to try to keep moisture out.

Yes, I ran around the shop today airing up tires, sandblasting a few small bicycle parts and even put a new set of wheels on my wifes daily driver. Airlines everywhere is a MUST from now on.

Re: Finally...a new shop at the house

Thanks Ryan,

I did something similar on my setup. Not quite that fancy though.

On another note:

I’m super happy with how everything in the shop is now. Air, power, hvac, lights, lift etc...good! Just wish I’d had more room to build a bigger building. :storyofmylife:

Next is drainage, dirt work and driveway into the building.

Re: Finally...a new shop at the house

Understand on the size. I’ve been looking at adding 15-20’ to mine but not sure where my septic starts. Adding 10’ on the front and 10’ on the back doesn’t sound cost effective.

Re: Finally...a new shop at the house

Mine is limited by topography. As you can see from the first few pages, mine is built into a hill. I woulda needed a LOT of fill material to get more footage.
