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.
There seems to be a lot of confusion about whether or not to soak the hardwood before burning it. First, do not bother with chips because they are a waste of time and money. You can readily obtain hardwood chunks from Walmart, Lowes, or Home Depot. There is simply no benefit to be derived from soaking your hardwood chunks. Chris Allingham has a video on just how much water penetration is achieved in an overnight soaking. View it at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rv7y1TWyKEw. Additionally, that wet wood is going to have to dry before it will burn. The drying process is going to create steam and that steam can contain creosote. Once the drying wood starts to burn, it is going to produce that thick, white smoke which will carry creosote. Remember, you want clear, blue smoke.
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.
A brief word on charcoal. Briquettes are, by far, the most popular charcoal type. They light quickly and burn consistently. However, briquettes are made with additives, and those additives produce more ash. Lump charcoal (made by an oxygen deprived burning of hardwood) has no additives, produces less ash, burns much hotter than briquettes, and imparts a slight essence of the native wood to foods. But the biggest advantage of lump over briquettes is that lump can be added directly to the fire because all of the toxins have been burned out of the lump charcoal. Briquettes must be pre-burned; that means another chimney of coals before adding to the fire.
I find it useful to buy many basic tools for use around the house at Harbor Freight. For this use, they fill the need perfectly. Hammers, screwdrivers, gloves, and blades are great buys here. If I am in the market for a more expensive tool, I may pick it up at Harbor Freight with the intention of picking up a higher quaility version in the future when my budget permits.
Allow me to guide you through this process right here at the start and I believe that you'll be more than pleased with the results of this search and that you will find the confidence to build that shed you've been wishing for. You see once you have the information spread out before you in an easy step by step approach to all aspects of the project the nay sawyer's voices will disappear for good.
