Here's some airline install pics. Big6 massive hookup and came over and gave me a hand a few times. 1"sch40 the whole shop with 6 drops and a giant condensor.
Everything was cut and threaded and "bolted in" from my shop drawing. I was amazed at the accuracy, since i only gave centers to fittings. One wall bolted up within 1/16, it was nuts, and it also didn't fit because i didn't allow for room to thread. lol had to cut 3/4" off one pipe. ;D That is very good.
run from compressor (to rear of photo) to back wall, a jig over the fan, and continuing across the back with some drops.
push-lock fittings. no fumbling with two hands to put in a line.
filter and regulator for by compressor, (made from scrap) and secondary drier for by table. new stuff is compressor to condensor feed. no condensor pic, oops.
T-Dogg installing 60A circuit for Powermax45, run from the panel to back wall.
the man, the legend.
thx for all the help guys! couldn't do it without you.

CNC plasma table/pipe bending - pm for custom fabrication
its all brand new pipe. what "crap" would you be refering to? I blew out any threading chips previous to install.
there is a giant condensor, a filter, a regulator, another drier, a filter after that, and a built in filter in the plasma.
"crap" being water - the only other thing i can do is go to a refridgerated drier.
"crap" being particulate - there are 3 filters and a bunch of height variances and 90deg turns. I don't see that as being any sort of an issue at all. And I will know that's true the first time i clean the filters.
edit: note that the volume of the 1" pipe is just shy of 5 gallons. the condensor is probably 10+, didn't calculate it yet.
I had a 1.5" 3 insert face mill with aluminum inserts, it did a wicked job on the mount block.
i told him i needed a 40A circuit. He checked with some guys and we went over the machine specs in more detail and found that there would be machine start-up spikes to 50A, and to use slow-blow breakers. So TDog recommened going to 60A. the materials he picked out from his industrial suppliers and he installed after hours. He got extra wire looped up top so I can move the plug around the back wall anywhere i want it.
This is about the 7th time I have used him, from lights in the house, circuit for in-floor heated pad under marble tile, buried cable for 120V service to my barns, 220V overhead heater, and now this.
I had no idea the extent of this project when I first started reading this thread... been doing some reading on the internet to help follow it... I would never have thought someone could do this sort of thing in a garage... very cool.
