Did I forget to tell everyone that we need a huge compressor for the MechMate? http://www.mechmate.com/Forum/clipart/blush.gif

I have a smaller compressor (60 gallons, will this work?
What is the huge compressor for?
Does it drive something on the MechMate?

Relax Loren, you only need the compressor to blow off the dust before taking the photos! http://www.mechmate.com/Forum/clipart/happy.gif

That compressor really makes that picture look impressive and by the way nice sense of humor.

That Quincy (http://www.quincycompressor.com/qr25.html) has been used by 3 generations in the family over about 40 years. Probably had 5 oil changes max. and no other attention (except for mandatory pressure vessel inpections). Still runs like a watch.
