Unless a coiled air hose is for use at a work bench, it is useless. Too many times your work is just beyond the easy stretch. You stretch it out, need both hands. Now where did that tool go?

Yeah, I realize that now. Looked good in the store, not so handy when I was trying to stretch to reach the fence. Oh well, live and learn. I bought a 50' flexible hose, hopefully will be more usable.

Now it's time to build something to help you move the compressor around.

Oliver; how about adding a couple of removable containers/totes for carrying small stuff like tool oil and air nozzle? They always seem to be in the last place one was at...

You are absolutely right, Dan. I've have been thinking about that but wasn't sure what I wanted. Your post prompted me to take action so I dug into my cigar box stash and added one to the compressor caddy. Perfect size for my needs.

Now I know everyone always is interested in how much a projects costs. In my case, the box for this project was about $70. [Of course, that included cigars. ]

Non-smokers can usually pick up empty boxes from cigar stores for a buck or two. They are really nicely made little boxes with brass hinges and clasps. I may modify a few more for router bit storage.

I know this is an older thread but since a few have mentioned inline moisture filters thought I would ask here instead of starting a new Thread. What brand of inline moisture filter do you use and it does go inline between the connect on you compressor and your tool/spary gun? Yes?

Hey, Jim; The moisture filters, after market regulators, etc are all a bit bulky, best place for them is ganged up at the compressor before the run to your tool. If you have your shop piped, then sure, why not have it just before your tool hose...except that you'd need to do that at every station. That could get pricey.
A compromise might be to have a dedicated station for spraying and go gangbusters there with filters, air driers, and a regulator to drop the pressure (for spraying).
Or maybe something like this?
