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.
