A central pneumatic air compressor provides power to air tools. It can deliver quality air to small and large tools. The tools receive power from the compressor when pressurized air is collected in the tank. This creates the force needed for the tools to work. The tank holds air in gallons. The average central pneumatic air compressor is 10 gallons. Each unit of air is measured in psi, or pound per square inch. It is always a good idea to buy a tank as big as possible. A bigger tank contains more air. This eliminates the need to refill the tank often. It is important to keep this in mind when you are deciding which tank is best equipped to handle your needs.
A lot of people I read user experiences on said that Northern Tool has imports that are the same quality as Harbor Freight, but they do not offer nothing but imports. People who want American made tools will have access to them. American made tools are sold next to the ones that have been imported. Just expect to pay a little bit more in this case.
Let's start with what I think is about the most important thing "protect that attitude". I know that isn't where most people start however without it cleaning that scoot will always be a headache. How do I protect it? First, get a motorcycle lift. They're not all that expensive these days. I got mine at Harbor Freight for about $300.00 and I can't tell you how much easier it is to clean any bike. You can get them much cheaper even as little as $60.00 or so. But my point is to get that baby up in the air so you don't have to hurt your knees, back or anything else. Nobody looks forward to kneeling or bending over for hours at a time. Do you think that might be a reason your friend's bikes may not be so clean?
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.
Misc small tools: Drill motors at least one, you will drill hundreds if not thousands of holes, but seldom will you need the 1/2 chuck and big power, besides those drills are heavy. one cordless drill is nice to have 18 volt nothing smaller, and a couple spare batteries. Jig saw and finish sanders, just about any will do but get the best your budget will allow. one good random obit sander is a must, sticky back or hook and loop, I've used them both and don't have a favorite.
There are five areas on that workbench that, with some minor rework, will materially improve its performance and probably extend its working life. None of these suggestions are critical, or even necessary for the casual user. None of these suggestions are complicated to implement, but I find that they will probably be worth the effort as time passes.
