Finally found a good spot for the compressor and got it wired in and the air lines hooked up. Just need to hook-up a contactor and a smart plug so I can connect it to the smart home and make sure it only comes on during the day. And bolt it down to the ground. Luckily it doesn't really move too much.

Looks great. Are you going to get some vibration isolators to put between the compressor and the concrete?

I'm very envious of your shop. I wish mine was that large.

most definitely do, just have been lazy to buy them and rent the concrete hammer drill.

Thanks. Got extremely lucky when we found this house.

Eventually at some point. If I was driving in and out of it everyday it would be a higher priority. When I do, I was going to look at direct drive ones to save ceiling space.

Having some fun with home automation. Added a sensor to the door so the lights come on automatically, and got a remote to turn on my dust collection (dust filter be added to it later), and for my air compressor. Yes shop is a disaster, I'm still doing some cleaning.

Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly.

Thanks man, appreciate it. It's coming along. Nice place to escape to every now and then.

Would be nice if I could do something like that, would like to see if I could come up with a way to do it also. Luckily it really isn't too loud. Since it isn't as high pitched as my old 21 gallon it isn't too bad. Especially with the garage door open.

Spent some time relaxing in the clean room this weekend. Have a buy/assemble craftsman workbench I picked up a few years ago in our old rental, put some basic drawers underneath it. Trying out different wall organization with the 3d printer, and printed off some ways to hang my RC cars on the wall.
