So I had to buy a new compressor to replace the old tired one. I got this 11.5 CFM Black Diamond built by Sanborn. I was reading through the owners manual and maintenance instructions. I said the air filter should be checked daily and changed often :( no wonder) it's a 1 x 4 inch chunk of polyester filter media that would let chunks through. The local Home and Agro store had some Kohler 7x1.5 inch filters on clear out for $5.00 each.

And a storage idea for ya, take a 5 gallon plastic bucket cut the bottom 10 inches off, cut a piece of aluminum leaving four tabs bent at 90 degrees so you can rivet it on to fill a little under 1/2 of the opening . Screw the bucket to the wall with a couple fender washers on the screws. Now you can hang your air hose on the bucket, the taper of the bucket keeps the hose on but if you need to pull more hose off there is nothing to stop it from coming off. The inside of the bucket is the prefect place for blow gun, tire chucks, pressure gauges etc.
