cloudsifter11: 6 month review update? 

felipe maldonado: Haha I fell asleep after listening for 5 minutes . Then I woke up when it stoped

Jake Rhoten: im looking at the harbor freight small pancake compressor for my airbrush, but im concerned about the noise level. is it loud?

Geoffrey Morrison: I note this 3-gal model every time I visit HFT. (Don't get CH's 1-gal.) For topping off my tires outside, I obtained the HFT 5-gal airtank, instead. It appears to function OK--fittings are somewhat cheap. (Not for pros!) To drain water, instructions indicate removing the hose and plumber-taping it to reinstall--I'm afraid that after every use re-install will kill any remaining integrity of the fittings, though. What I should have done was to install the dryer on my compressor beforehand....

Jake Rhoten: cool

origionaldz: @ncrdisabled Yes its a pretty long fill time, but it is a 29 gallon tank. It will usually never be empty though.

Geoffrey Morrison: This isn't directly related: Some time ago, I noted that Porter-Cable sold refurb 6-gal pancakes online for about $100. That compresssor model is really poplular--it's oil-free, though. (Oil-serviced compressors last longer.) Perhaps Porter-Cable sells other compressor refurbs, too. I haven't checked again in a long while. I wouldn't know about how PC gets compressors to such retail customers, though: Free shipping?

Peter Hewel: I need a compressor that can sustain 125 lbs pressure for 60-90+ seconds. I clean air ducts with a 1/4 hose and a skipper ball. The feed from the compressor is 3/8 to a check valve. The air drives the line down the duct and when I pull it back, loosens debris. Could this do that? The loose debris is pushed by the system and sucked up by a vacuum about 2x the power of good shop vac. Thanks.

Geoffrey Morrison: Better tools often are stolen, too. Thieves prove more likely to overlook HFT tools--they can't get much for them used. Even if shop HFT tools fail and need re-purchasing, your shop-guys definitely come out ahead. Hand tools don't fail very often. Power tools: Reviews help. Other makes offer their problems, too. Quality has improved over the years,: The PRC now focuses on pear-head rachets--the other type is rare. Pear-head proved a huge favor from US makers: A crumb or two, please!

redbeard0183: i wonder if there is a way to get more air flow to the top of the pump head. i notice mine gets to 160-170 degrees and the sides where the fan/pulley is blowing it it gets to about 130 degrees. i wonder if the temperature difference will damage the pump over time? hopefully it doesn't overheat this summer when i'm using it.

origionaldz: You probably should but I leave the air in it. I just drain the tank to get the water out periodically.

origionaldz: @redbeard0183 Do you run it continuously or do you let it build up enough for it to take a break. I can tell you most twin piston compressors use this same design, I have a gas powered one too I will have to take some readings on it and compare, that one always runs. I would just keep up on the oil changes it should be fine.

ncrdisabled Submarine vet: Man thats a long fill time . good thing it has a big tank.

jparks4081: I thinking about buying this one this weekend. Do you like it so far ?

PudgyK: Whoopee...

PudgyK: My buddies run a custom motorcycle shop and they are becoming well known too. Guess where they got every single one of their tools.. HF. :)

origionaldz: Yea, when the tank is empty she takes a bit to fill completely up, top off isn't that bad though.

anthony diodati: yeah,i got a "good" Sanborne compressor, ~ 20 gallon, but the tank has a pinhole. Cheapest 22 gal. tank I can find is close to $300.00 & shipping. Hate to take a chance on craiglist, might get a tank thats ready to leak again. Is the HF compressor still holding up well? The reviews seem good, but do the really post the bad reviews?

weeeesssss: Do you have a sense of how noisy it is? does the manual have a db rating in it?

origionaldz: Mine is still holding up pretty well, its due for an oil change again. I had one problem where the automatic shutoff contact stuck closed and kept running, luckily the pressure relief valve opened and no harm done. I have it in the basement and was working outside with the air and I didn't know it until I went back in the house. Other than that its been ok. I can't say for sure about the bad reviews. I had a bad experience with harbor freights customer service both in store and on the phone

origionaldz: @jparks4081 I like it. For the price and what it does it really can't be beat. I haven't had the chance to use my sandblaster or sander with it yet. If you do purchase it make sure you drain and refill the pump oil (so far me and another person had metal shavings in the oil before we even used it) and tighten the head bolts per the manual. I haven't had the chance to really hardcore use mine yet but for everything I used it for it's fine.

hardyhandshake: How do you feel about this compressor now?

PudgyK: They sell an air brushing compressor, gonna buy it soon. Looks legit.

redbeard0183: @origionaldz i haven't even started using it yet. lol. i got the garage rearranged and the compressor put in its place sunday. i've been making trips to the hardware store buying fittings to plumb in the filter and oiler and ran a line to the hose reel on the other side of the garage. the temperature reading was just after filling the tank to pressure test the system.

GrayWraith: I am looking at this compressor too. I am hesitant because it is sold at Harbor Freight. What kind of reliability has everyone seen?

redbeard0183: if i did the math right thats about 5.99cfm.

Geoffrey Morrison: It's a business, and it's likely a good decision. If they buy Snapon or something like that, they face financial crucifixion! (Craftsman, Kobalt, etc. comes from the PRC, too--what's the point?) Note what's happened to guys who relied upon tools during the financial meltdown: To get an idea, visit pawnshops which try, in vain, to unload the millions of tools they have now. Snapon, MAC, Matco, Craftsman (even their large and fancy rolling tool caddies)--and practically anything else, too....

anthony diodati: yeah, but l guess your really supposed to drain it after every use,are you not?

CherryBlossom: I had high hopes for this one, as I had heard good reviews of it, and I am a hardcore horror fan (not slasher fan but true horror movies). So I decided to wait till it came to itunes and bought it. I enjoyed the film, for what it was, But just like you Mark, found that as it went on I felt removed from being in it. I will admit any possession style movies or psychologically warped films are my favourites, and that is where I find asian horror to still have the edge on western films. I came to the conclusion, it was a fun movie and enjoyed the jumps in it, but found it too cliched in the end. I am still waiting on finding a good horror movie to come out soon, As I may have exhausted the genre so far.
