The central pneumatic air compressor has the ability to help homeowners complete large home improvement jobs that can get really expensive if they hire a contractor. The average cost of this compressor is $180.00 from Harbor Freight Tools, but it can be found online at a discount. Once you know you are able to replace dry wall or a window by yourself, the compressor will have paid for itself many times over.
Pallets, also known as skids, are forklift-maneuverable platforms, the standard sizes being 40" x 48" or 48" x 48" (length by width) and most commonly composed of plywood, though metal pallets are often used, too. They are usually about 40 pounds in weight. One can easily locate them behind most retail outlets or shopping centers, and they can also be obtained for free at other places. A general rule when loading your pallet is to not try to stack up the pallets any taller than 6-8 feet. Shrink wrap and/or straps are then commonly used to secure the items to the pallet. We recommend the items always boxed up or covered with cardboard. In the example of engines, motor, and transmissions, a standard pallet with straps will usually suffice perfectly.
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?
I started looking around at artists taborets and rolling work tables and found them too expensive to be practical. It seems if something is labelled as art studio furniture or art materials it automatically comes with a pretty hefty markup and price tag. Even basic rolling shelves and carts from the big discount art stores online were in the neighborhood of $200 with several above $400. I considered buying lumber and building some shelves from scratch, but then it occurred to me to look around at the office supply stores and in the home furnishings departments of stores like Walmart and Target. I considered everything from rolling computer desks to kitchen carts and tool boxes. I checked Lowe's and Home Depot and even Harbor Freight and found there are numerous items marketed for home use or DIY workshops ready made that would function well in an art studio.
These units are simple in design as they consist of a 12 volt gel cell battery plus a couple of heavy duty 400 amp cables and rubber insulated clamps. These are extremely useful items as the batteries they have are powerful enough with its 400 amps to actually jump start a vehicle when its starting battery is totally dead. Its peek power rating is approximately 900 Amps. There is AC adapter which comes with it for charging the boost battery as well as a 12 volt cord for charging it from your car as you drive.
