Plumb Your Shop with Air

Flexible hose
saves time
and money

By Richard Tendick

Moments after I tripped
over the air hose and
dropped an armload
of boards, I decided it
was time to plumb my shop
for air. I was tired of having
50 ft. of hose on the
floor and dashing back to
the compressor to adjust
the line pressure. I knew
a permanent system
could deliver the right
amount of air where
and when I needed
it—without a big hose
snaked dangerously
across the floor.
