Compressor may or may not be happy, need to give it a try on a more reliable power source than the 60+ year old 15 amp breaker for the garage.

Aside from that, I splurged on a whole lot of related tools for this thread late last night. Pics when they arrive on my door step :-)

Compressor got loaded up, taken to the shop, plugged in, and proven to be fine:

Fills a few holes in my collection! In particular:

  • Goggles with a seal around the face
  • A full face shield
  • Thinner earmuffs for under-car work
  • Thinner neck-band earmuffs for welding helmet use
  • A full set of USA-made ferrous and non-ferrous die grinder burrs. Where possible, screw China!
  • A decent set of 3M Roloc surface conditioning products and compatible
  • 3" die-grinder cutting disks and arbor to suit
  • Set of hard plastic gasket scrapers for not marking soft surfaces while cleaning them
  • Some bulk JBWeld epoxy :-D

Wow, where exactly did it break? Will pass that on to the owner of this one!

This weekend I gave the 3M Roloc Bristle Disks a go, and they work great. A lot more aggressive than I was expecting, possibly due to the speed I was spinning them. Green eats rust from steel pretty quickly. White if used carefully pulls stuff from alloy without excess harm. You could still see the original machining marks in the head after I was done. Even the white one will radius an edge it's approaching, though. So you have to be careful which way you're going etc.

And in the process of that, I gave the compressor its first serious usage. It ran solidly for a few hours both days, no drama. It was indoors, though, and the room smelled like cooked paint after a good session :-D Will have to give it the oil change at some point. I forget how many hours he said to do it in, but it wasn't much. Still only a fraction of the way to not much, however.
