The compressor fits right but the motor had to be moved closer to the tank approx 1/5 of inch most of the Cage had to be cut off, air lines from the tank and from regulator had to be replaced due to the their length. I wanted to replace the on/off switch with padded one. But after research found out you cannot modify switch if the pressure switch and on /off built in together. Also the drain valve is not access I left anymore so you have to drain through the pressure releive at the top. All of that is to make sure the compressor is more compact, you can put something on top of it now and also "stick it" to the Schneider and Cadex with their $700USD price tag VS $350 CAD it costed me to build it.

Nice job. 

You'll have to wait a bit to stick it to Cadex though as their compressor in a systainer version is still a pipe dream.


Did you consider drilling a hole in the bottom to access the drain valve ?

Cool project.  How much time do you have invested in it?

Great job.  It must be a little hair raising to cut up such a nice compressor to fit.  Glad it worked out so well.  You can expect a few copies of this idea.. [cool]

Thank you guys. In terms of the time its a bit tricky I dont remember cause at first I cut off the handle and had to find the material to mount the motor to the rest of the frame. It took about 3 hours. The fact that we live in the condo and the only place where I could work is the balcony. Did not help much. And the second time to finish was about 3-4 hours. But that was about 2 weeks later. Cause I had to gather the rest of the parts.

Yes Dick it was a bit scary. Cause I knew if something goes wrong I wouldn't be able to make any warranty claims.

In terms of the drilling the hole to drain the air, I did not want to cause the hole will have to be fair Big to accomodate at least two fingers in order to drain it.
Secondly it would be just collecting the dust and other debries from the sites. I am thinking of extending the drain valve with drain kit and fishing and rerkuting it to the side where it will be reach able.

I’ve messed around and uploaded models to Shapeways and found their pricing very reasonable, though never placed an order. I have used a product for smoothing 3D prints called XTC-3D with good results. Single coat, 2 part epoxy levels the ridges. Sands easy.

Has anyone regretted putting their compressor in a systainer? I picked up an Omega PN1004 and was thinking about doing this.

Looks like Rolair has used the Schneider gauge cutout.

I personally like being able to click it right into the stack, im still in the middle of upgrades but I cant imagine id ever not like the convenience
I will say this though

Senco pc 1010--$120
Systainer 4.        $90
Parts.                  $75 ?  Probably more
Gathering parts  time ?

Ready made Rolair $475
Hmmm
But with all that said, its kind of a fun project

The Rolair AIRSTAK produces 2.0 SCFM compared to well less than 1 SCFM for the little compressors people are DIYing.
Therefore it can run a framing or roofing nailer where the DIY units can only run trim nailers.

Consider that before you compare the two options.

I haven't yet found a compressor that makes as much SCFM but will fit in the footprint on a Systainer.

If anyone does, post it up!

Just get the Cadex SYS4 like I did.  3.8 CFM @90 psi.

I did read in my research somewhere it is able to accomodate two users using larger guns.

IMO, it is far superior to the AirStak, specs and quality build-wise.  And that's from a loyal Rolair owner and Fan....me!

As someone who recently made a sys compressor. It was very cheap compared to the cadex or rolair

Sys 4 -$90 cad
Senco pc1010 clone - $150 cad

$250 ish and a few hours of spare time, no additional parts were necessary. Granted its a pretty weak compressor, but I knew that and it's more than fine for what I do.

I just grab my mac700 if I'm using a nail gun all day
