My old air drying desiccant system failed (I failed to replace the stuff inside in a timely manner)

So I am soldering up 50 feet of 3/4 copper tubing.
Once that is done I'll be running a line to the front of the 2 car garage for a 50 foot hose reel.

They should have a drain cock at the bottom of each loop. idea.gif



Nope....going to be mounted 90° of what is normally done.
The fatter looking tube will be 2", the idea is that the pressure drop will help remove some water particles also ( it works in many machine shops that don't want to invest in real chillers)
Red, ball valves
Blue, drier/filters

There will be additional filter/regulators at the mill and other air drop offs.

Nothing but I got some work done on my Yamaha also. Just cleaning it up after it's adventure. It's 95 and I just sweat working out in the garage. Need to put in the A/C. So the bike is inside.

Pipes all soldered up for the dryer. I planned on running this 3/4 inch RapidAir Maxline from outlet of air filter after the dryer. Not going to happen. Took me over 5 minutes just to straighten out that little portion.

Time to say f it and go back in the house.

Working on straightening out the airline.

Had some DOM tubing and the vise, had to buy the $20 hitch step.
I need one piece at 20 feet then a 90° for a 25 foot run to a junction.

Mike,

I'd like to run an air hose or piping from the 33 gallon compressor in my garage to the front of my house (approximately 60 feet or so). I just want it for blowing debris off of the driveway and to fill vehicle tires.

What would you recommend? ... would 1/2" or 3/4" GRS pipe be appropriate?

I have air-chuck fitting with a 'T' and a drain valve at the bottom (approx 10" below the 'T') that I could install at the end of the run ... I don't think I'd need an elaborate dryer assembly.

I think 1/2 inch would have been fine and would be cheaper for extra fittings. I got a killer deal on the 3/4, damaged box, no parts missing.

Tygaboy has the 1/2 inch for his shop and feels it it perfect.

No work on the car or even at my real job for a bit.

I was coerced into going camping up near Big Bear Lake for several days for the annual Amateur Radio Field Day event on Saturday/Sunday.

Felt good to get out of the urban setting for a little while, as I missed attending a lot of other different events from 2017 ~ 2019

I'm working on Big Blue today. Had the boat in the shop. When I went to go get it, as soon as I hooked the trailer up Big Blue blew her brakes right in the middle of the driveway. She left big puddles in thier driveway. Had to have her towed home. The leak is in the main frame behind the fuel tank. Have to remove the tank to get at it. So today I moved 25 gallons of diesel so I can drop the tank. Then I will be able to see what is going on.

Betty and I spent the morning cleaning the garage. So I will be back after it tomorrow morning working to getting the 4.0 running.

After a hard day of driving in rush hour yesterday, today is a day of rest for the 914.

I started thinking about working on the 914, does that count?

I flew in from Seattle to Scottsdale small airport to have a black (Uber Black that is...) driver drop me off just to start it up. WTF! from 72 to 111 degrees F. and the damned thing fired up immediately! Now I have to drive it! and I will....

sidebar: I have a battery cut off switch that I use and I blow out the fuel from the Webers throats prior to leaving "the oven"///////// That is what I did.....

I didn’t work on the 914 because I drove it TO work then home but what kept me from working on it other than it doesn’t need anything? 8 hour of power washing the house!
I would like to hook up the CHT gauge before Okteenerfest, but priority is house projects -250 ft of railings , 1000sqrft of deck and 500+ spindles to clean- I am getting too old for this! Blew out the power washer hose, but back of house is done, tomorrow is on to the front and then tackle replacing all soft lines on the 2000 528i.

Once all that is done I can sit down and enjoy reading my Panorama mag

Leveled the sub-floor in the "sun" room, which used to be a kitchen with really ugly linoleum tiles and started laying down 2" strips of red oak hardwood to match the rest of the house.
This will probably keep me busy for a few weekends.

Still working on those damn hardwood floors. Had to replace some of the sub-floor because it had termites in it at some point it the past.

Just couldn't get myself to patch over it, had to replace the whole thing ...

Up 5 am, left home at 6 am, driving around 800 km south to Celle in Germany. Tomorrow we head on to Stuttgart via Nürnberg. 36 C when we arrived today, too bloody hot for this viking....

Yesterday, replaced our leaking 50 gallon water heater with a Takagi tankless heater.

Today, had to take pull the dishwasher in the kitchen and take it apart to clean and repair that.

Both working so time to clean up and get ready for a bike ride, haven't ridden my bike in almost 2 weeks, either too hot, on vacation or sick.

I hear ya, Mike ... our dishwasher recently developed a leak that I need to address. I fixed it years ago, guess it needs new seals again. At least it's the portable/roll-around type, so it's not as bad as a built-in.

Easy

Cleaned out the basement at my parents old house

Went to Mom's new apartment installed a closet rod, a shower caddy, and a bed skirt.

Went to my daughters house looked at flooring

Came home went to the shop, tested an A/C unit I think I will install it. And then took apart the mower to find a mouses nest under the cooling tin on the engine. And started doing the tune up, and clean up of the engine. Need to replace fuel hoses, add a Tach / Hour Meter, and oil drain line support. Things I do to all my small engines now.

They sell kits hombre! Ya can go passive or active with a active portable LP fired kit.

Or....the special homeboy kit with a black rubber hose coiled on the roof of your house with an aquarium pump and a beer can float.

Let know compadre.



I didn't work on mine either cause I am looking for another teener since I sold my other.

i drove it one day but didn't DO anything to it because we've been finishing home projects and landscaping to prep the house for listing/sale - AND
had to replace brake lines for the E39 528i (280k miles and going!) before my daughter takes it to grad school in fall, - original lines were sorely in need of replacement, AND new front brake rotors and a leaking power steering line on the wife's '04 Jag. Now with those projects and jobs done I might actually get to finish the install of the CHT gauge on the 914 and post on that other thread-what I DID do lol!

I built a surround for our outdoor fire place.
Bees had moved in and the geniuses who installed the insert stucco'd over the flange. The only way to get it out to remove and relocate the hive was to destroy the front. So a removable cover it is!

My on again/off again relationship with a pinched sciatic nerve made itself evident this morning dry.gif

Some stretching, rolling and a Norco helped relieve some of the pain, so I wandered outside mid-day, removed all 4-wheels from the '66 912, wire-brushed and painted the lug nuts, filled the tires with fresh air and reinstalled them ... all in anticipation of moving the car off of the mid-rise lift in the driveway and rolling it on the new concrete pad in front of the garage later in the week biggrin.gif

Then, we had to take one of our pups for a vet appointment in the late afternoon ... she started coughing & hacking and looking a little run down during the w/e. We'll start her on an antibiotic regimen later this evening, so she can return to her normal self soon dog.gif
