Air Tools & Compressors - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

This problem is not uncommon with small compressors and the inexpensive plastic regulators they use nowadays. The one surefire way to stop it is ti install in in-line valve before the regulator outlet, even if it involves the double ended & threaded brass soupler so they both fit on. This way you can just turn the handles across the line effectively shutting off air flow. I have two pancake compressors and ended up doing the very thing.

Then when time comes to hook up a hose and tool, just switch the handle back and you have air.

trick question, which pneumatic tools used are part of the equation as for terms such as cfm, volts, amps, horse power, and resources available.
A 5 cfm compressor will not operate efficiently a 8 cfm tool. A 5 HP compressor needs plenty of power, a 30 amp 220 volt circuit, try finding a 5 HP 120 volts compressor.

depending on power available, tools selection then a compressor size can be selected.
