The item

This compressor would be a great addition to the workshop. They are great for a whole range of tasks:

  • Spray painting
  • Pumping up tires
  • Quickly cleaning swarf from tools
  • Surprising Tom Scott on his way out of the toilet
  • Attaching tools like shears, wrenches, nailers etc
  • Cleaning dust from inside electronics
  • Cleaning crap from lasercutter cooling tubes
  • Attach a pressure vessel and you have a cannon!

With the built in chamber it can provide a greater, consistent and variable supply of compressed air over a "put put" style of compressor currently found in the space.
