    new compressor

    My portable compressor dyed. Well i needed a new one to hall to the job sites. Went to get one at the borg, and they talked me into getting this bostitch. As my finish gun, and brad gun are at least 18 years old, and this came with the 3 new guns, i figured i coun't go wrong. used it a little today and it seems like it'll do the job ok.Click image for larger version.

    Rob,

    Note at the corner of the long edge. There are places the lines do not meet. Me thinith that it is a print job.

    Enjoy,

    JimB

    Stephen, You make me jealous. That is a darn good looking setup. I wish I had a smaller gun to go with my larger one.

    Rob what your seeing under the guns is going to be my sons coffee table. When i made his ex-wife the turners table he wanted one also, so i told him to come up with a design, and this is what he came up with. It;s 24x 50, and the legs are the puzzle pieces sitting on the top. And no it's not cut with a cnc, just free hand. the center where it looks like they join was made using a router and a wooden jig to get the look. It's just a little project i'm helping him do when ever he comes a round.

    Thank you Stephen all i can say is its going to be a cool table then. How will the edges be finished? Legs are a great idea.

    Not sure as this is his idea and letting him decide on most of it. Only stick my two cents in when he gets in a bind.

    I have exactly the same setup.....reconditioned through Amazon.

    I use it for spraying and nailing. Works very well. USe it in good health!
