    Fezzly got it off ebay and I believe the bloke has more. Personally I would trawl through ebay or Marktplaats.nl for a 25L scrapper with bust motor and/or compressor. That way you only have to plumb in the fridge compessor/s of your choice as you will have all the safety valves, pressure switches and pipe work aleady there.

    Yup thats right I did get it from eBay.... from a air comp sales and service place in Birmingham. .. he did have 4 in total may have another left rick.... although what Talla is saying makes sense. ... I just got this new tank as it was as cheap as a used / non running comp and thought is reputable manufacturer. .. can let you know address. .. they may get some more come in if they hadn't got any in now

    i use petrol hoses that are stronger than normal its fit the small pipes and if it build up to big pressuer it can slide of if u use this metal klips that u screw on and because i have two compressor i use a T peace from the sprinklersystem on a car its perfect and if it build up to big pressuer some where it can slide of and not explode acutally i am not sure of it but i heard that i even can blow my tank and its up to 10 bar so i want to be sure i niot get to hig pressure :angel:

    Shouldn't the pressure release valve take care of this alf?? The hoses I'll be using are rated to above 300psi and the pressure switch goes to 115.... the pressure valve is125 psi.... by setting them lower I shouldn't have to much trouble I reckon.... also the air tank is rated to 200 psi. ... I'm hoping not all things would fail at once resulting in my possible death :0)

    LOL yes i want to be secure but u have right fez it would be ok but if somthing clog up before the safty valv wich not should happend then the hose will release and the presure go out there. i bought also today a filter for bouth oil and vhater i will show u when i am back at work again and have it put on place i know it sounds wierd that i must go to work but i work in Denmark and my home is in Gearmany so i have for now only posebility to airbrsuh in the evening at my work. and i cant not home yet hehe

    Probably, but in the vid the oil is probably going in the charging line, this is the one that is usually short and crimped off or soldered on the end. Looks like it any way, then the person plugs the air inlet,and it looks to then siphon up the oil.

    Might be an issue with one of the motor starters. Were both compressors working previously?

    Well I sourced all my components got a bit of copper and a bit of brass and a bit of rubber! Have dry fitted it all just need to empty out old oil, tell with compressor oil, tighten everything up connect intake hose to 2 mini air filters and then bosh! Set my pressures and switch her on!.... . I say I have paid for every part apart from the 2 fridge compressors in total it has cost about £100 to make 20131017_222502.jpg
