The problem with the 'silent' ones they have very little output volume. I was thinking belt driven this time  :noidea:

This one should be able to run any of my engines up to the Commander which has a 75mm bore  :thinking:

I've got a 5 hp, 60 gallon tank one at the shop. Belt driven but still noisy. Having it in that closet area helps, but it's still loud. I will use the quiet one for most things, but yeah...a 75mm bore will take some volume!!

The tree cutting boys who borrowed it have jammed the regulator valve fully down and it is no longer adjustable :Mad: the result is the No 1 tries to have your fingers off  :paranoia:

Well, I guess it's a good thing you're an engineer, Jo. That means you can fix it!

Just what you need to keep you busy..... :paranoia:

Its a time problem Pete: When you are retired you just don't have the spare time you had when you were at work   :embarassed:

Need to find some time to choose a new compressor and check it will fit somewhere  :thinking:

Do you (or the elephant) have a set of Stuart compressor castings?

Can't you rig up something as a temporary measure just so we can see the engine running  :)

The engine is back in pieces.... a compressor valve has been ordered.

The first video I did I forgot to put on the valve guide  :facepalm:


Still thinking about a new compressor: hydrovanes look nice.. except the price  :paranoia:

My mobile phone doesn't take photographs  :hellno:


I can fit a 100ltrs tank compressor inside the main garage or a 150ltrs one if I put it outside. This one looks interesting:

I thought you may have used it to take the video as that is often what caused them to be rotated.

On youtube goto my channel, then bottom left go back to the old classic view, select videos and it should list yours down the page with EDIT and a downwards arrow next to that. Click the arrow and select enhancements from that list, the screen that then comes up will have rotate options.
