    A New Toy Arrives

    This showed up on my driveway Thursday:

    Fortunately for me, my sister and brother-in-law Jim arrived for a weekend visit Friday. I had the day off work, so I put Jim to work helping me get this installed:

    Of course the only pre-installation pic I have of it only shows the back. I'll show many more details later. It's a hoss.

    It was an eventful afternoon, the compressor kicks major hind end, and I have a lot of pics to go through (on my camera and my sister's) before I tell the whole sordid story. Got a busy day planned for tomorrow, so I likely won't be able to tell the full story for a couple of days. Figured I'd pull a Shaz and tease you guys a bit...

    Oh, and the compressor already has a name.

    Purple!?

    Well, now we know how Vaughn buys tools.

    It must match his purple DC.

    Big, though. How's the noise?
    There's usually more than one way to do it...

    Long-haired blonde guitar playing guy in southern California with a PURPLE air compressor. It kinda goes with the carpeting in his shop. Yeah! I can see that!

    My old 11 gallon Auto Zone compressor is nearly 90 db...the new one is about 73 db. (I have an SPL meter.) You can have a conversation when this one is running in the shop.

    And Ken, Ken, Ken...the carpet came out last year. That was so 2007, man.
