Hi check out the shoebox 3000 vs 4500 thread right under this one. We will hopefully have a review shortly. Looks very interesting . For me speed is not so much an issue but if the Altaros is a bit faster, easier to maintain then a shoebox compressor and doesn't require a oiless compressor for the first stage I'm in.
Looking forward to your thoughts and opinions. Perhaps a quickie vid? No need for a full on production video or anything complete with Hollywood effects nor CGI.
You can use a oil sump compressor but here is a quote from Tom Kaye the maker of the the shoebox"We only recommend oil free" All, For the price of an oil-free compressor it really doesn't make any sense to risk killing yourself with an exploding tank. We really recommend you stay away from oil compressors and live a long and happy life. Tom KayeIf the engineer tells you it has a chance to ignite and explode from atomized oil mist in the air why take a chance?
Apparently Mike, you are not familiar with what can happen when high pressure, containing oxygen is mixed with a petroleum product. Until you have researched it, it is VERY irresponsible to advise others to do it.It's fine for you to risk it yourself. Your decision. But not cool at all to thru ignorance, putting other people who do not know any better at risk. Not cool at all! Research is your friend.
