    I got my 210 York installed into the rig the other day, now I need to get the rest of the setup installed. I have most everything I'll need, just need to get a regulator, and I don't want to dump a ton of cash. Can I go to a local hardware shop, or something similar to get something that will work? I'm looking for something I can go buy tomorrow locally, vs. having to order it in - I'm all about getting this thing DONE now... I can't wait to wheel again this spring! /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    Thanks for the help folks!

    You shouldnt really need a regulator unless your running ARB's. If you set the cut out switch right it should be just the same as running air tools on a home compressor. Did you also make sure you have a pop-off valve too? Any regulator from Harbor freight or Lowes should work just fine. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Just get a switch and a pop-off-valve. You don't need a regulator unless you are running something that requires low pressure.

    The pressure switch should be a hardware store item.
