    York compressor from a volvo ($15). Basically it's the exact same as the set-up in the Tech section except without the unloader line and lot larger tank with a pressure gauge in the cab and no safety valve.

    Well, the york only gets up to 90psi and everything is either rated 150psi or 200psi, so I figured I was pretty safe.

    Oh, and I didn't order any parts from Onboardair.com (Kilby Ent). They never responded to my e-mails, so being the impatient person I am, I just did it myself for cheaper. Used the original york fittings, a gas RC car intake filter for the intake filter, and went down to AAI Racing and picked up a -08 AN (the original fitting size on the york) to 1/4" NPT adapter and a coupling.

    It works beautifully! I set the pressure valve to cut in at about 60psi and cut out at 90psi. Ran the die grinder all morning on it only having to take about 90sec breaks to let it catch up (Has a huge tank, so it takes a little bit). /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif

    I'll see if I can get some pictures of it this weekend!
