    Well for those of you who don't know ,I got a CH 2 stage big boy, I gotta tell ya it kicks butt, but....When it's full and I run a tool for an extended amount of time or it's hot, it resonates like someone hitting a bell with a hammer, freaky, I trigger the tool it resonates, it sounds like a fawkin freight train, is it gonna blow or what.... /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    I'm running about 25 feet of 3/4 pipe and then another 75 feet of hose, but it was also doing it when I
    just had 50 of hose right from the compressor... /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    Mine gets hot as hell and resonates like crazy all the time, I've never worried about it. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif Of course it's not watercooled anymore like it used to be. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
