Oh it must be more than a couple decades now, but I can remember dealing with an independent contractor in my auto detailing business in Santa Barbara. He told me that he bought a very quiet generator, a Honda model, top of the line. He told me that he wanted one powerful enough to run a 5-hp vacuum, his buffers, lights, and a 1500 psi, 2.5 gallon per minute pressure washer all at the same time. I asked him why.
Now that you have the place and the tools you will need to get some electronics to tear down. There are several different ways to approach this so we will review them below. One of the most powerful tools that I have found is a simple form letter that is sent to various companies in my area. I sat down with my wife and created this letter outlining what our company does and how it would benefit the companies that we were contacting. The response is simply amazing.
Now then, the other day I was paging through a tool catalog for Harbor Freight and Salvage and there were a number of generator and pressure washers available. Some of which were from China, and I have nothing against quality equipment from whatever country it comes from, but there is a big difference in quality, and a big difference in cost. Further there is a large gap between the number of decimals some of this equipment puts out, and it does matter, especially if you are detailing cars in a parking lot nearby offices.
Unfortunately these stores don't have all the tools needed for a proper hardwood floor repair. A few exceptions or ones a novice can handle may include fixing squeaky floors with ring shank nails or using putty or colored stain pens to repair scratches. Another may be fixing glued floors that have lost their adhesive bond. The tool of choice here is a glue injection kit, but you will not find them at the big orange or blue stores.
I finally decided on these metal shelves from Target. The brand is Room Essentials and they come in different widths and numbers of shelves and are also available in black. I purchased the wide three self system in chrome. I also added the industrial 4 inch casters. The shelves require no tools to assemble and the casters screw directly in to the bottom of the legs. Each shelf is rated to hold more than 300 pounds. I also bought a roll of shelf lining for the bottom two shelves. The shelves are modular so I can add additional units later if I want. Target has all of this together in one location in the store so it was a one stop shopping kind of thing. The total cost for the shelves and liner was right at $60.
Before you buy a central pneumatic compressor, you should think about what you will be using it to power. You may need to use it on small projects or you may want it around for occasional use. Some users like to have one to use for car tires. It only takes seconds to inflate a tire. A task like this does not require a large tank capacity or a lot of psi. But, if you need to use nail guns, air cutters, a caulk gun or a spray gun, you will need a larger tank and more psi. These are common tools used during home improvement projects and construction jobs.
