    I have a old twin tank that would make a good surge tank like this, the motor and pump, died long ago.

    At one point I was going try and find a old compressor tank to do this for my little compressor. I just haven’t found one yet.

    I’m working on lifting ears and legs now. My belt grinder came in handy for this.

    Thanks. Nice to not use a hand file and a angle grinder all the time. Here are more pictures of the build. The tanks is up side down in the pictures, that’s because i will put some legs on it.

    I am sure it is much nicer then a angle grinder and a file.

    That’s some thick stuff over there.
    Is it aluminum or steel?

    What a nice set of pieces. Do you use a plasma torch to cut them out? The belt sander is perfect for finishing those; things are coming together in your shop very nicely.

    BE the change you want to see.

    Some more great welding Ivan , I’ve never used or seen these types of set up before , why are there 2 ball valves between the tanks , is it to balance the air pressure ? I know guys at the shop that have used older compressors to do this , but I never even bothered to look into it.

    The valves is there mainly for if i want to use only one tank, for small jobs.. i dont need to fill the whole system.

    That is a great idea. When you can choose between using one or both tanks. Look forward seeing it done.

    Not sure about color yet.

    I didn’t like the design of the legs i was planning before. Here is my new idea, this time i made it of angle iron.

    Looking good Ivan , looks like little legs and feet 👍
    Will it be bolted down to the floor judging by the holes in the feet

    Although you may not care, I was wondering about how many hours you will have into this build?

    I like your new design.
    Why did you change your mind about the design?
