    Is "no pressure" the right phrase for a compressor thread? lol

    Good luck AD, hoping and praying you get your dream successful.

    Respectfully,

    October, the dream has found new life! I put it on the line and bought a compressor from a private party on Scubaboard. It is the same kind as the 1st one, it has 100 hours (approx) and has had an issue that was fixed.
    So I'm hoping now it'll be running long after I'm not! Contained excitement, with cautious optimism, I can't help myself!!!! :)

    Thanks, if it runs as good as it looks I'll be very happy! I like the frame and the belt guard. The other one had a belt guard that left a scar on my right knee after I scrapped on it on the edge. This one looks to be senior safe. :wink:

    Your welcome. I was admiring the frame and belt guard also. I like the way it is set up. Mine doesn't have a belt guard, yet.

    You can always stop by Hope Valley for a fill on your way to FTW, it's not that far out of the way from Chepachet. :)

    The younger you are the more sense it makes to own a compressor, air stations are becoming fewer and further between. By my count we have less than 6 in the entire state.
    The closest one in MA that I know of is in Fairhaven.

    I'm actually a member of Chepachet FD and we have a fill station there. I'm getting close to retirement so I figured owning my own may be an easier option. Thanks.

    You have a good reliable setup there and continuing to get your tanks filled there is a great way to stay in touch post retirement and a lot cheaper!
