Now that we have the air line successfully run out of the compressor shack, we can start running the rest of the shop air.
Proposed scope of work:
Main trunk line down length of the space (terminating at the craft table) ($260ish)
Branch line into Paint and mess room ($370ish, includes a filter/dryer and associated extra fittings)
Branch line into CNC land ($90ish)
Branch line into Wood shop ($60ish)
Fittings and pipe for this much work will come to approximately $440, plus about $200 for air dryers/filters in the paint and mess room, $30ish for each of two curly hoses, and $40 for other odds and ends like thread tape and whatever I’ve forgotten. (Edited to remove tool rental, Bill has generously offered to lend his pipe threader to the cause)
So we’re looking at something like $750 to get the shop aired up to this point. We will include ports at key points that will allow for future expansion to support air lines to the electronic area, the machine shop, the sewing area, and the main work table, should we desire an air line in these areas. (Assume that it will cost about $90 to bring air to your area if you do it now, or $150 if you want to do it later paying Lowes prices for pre-cut iron and fittings.
Who is willing to pledge some cash to making this happen?
Also edit: for reference, it cost about $600 to get the air to the point it’s at now, although that was paying the Lowes price.
