    If you do go with a larger pulley you will increase the speed of the pump. Chances are you will damage it. Compressors have the motor sized to the pump's volume and the speed at which it can run...

    I have a larger older roll around 3hp collector. It's noisy and often I wouldn't use it. Last summer I bought a 1hp portable version from Harbor Freight (I even laughed at myself). I looked at the...

    Plus "not enough space" in the past is also a little vague. How much space are you willing to part with. A 20" machine will do almost everything a 10" machine will do and give you a lot more real...

    This has been my go to technique as well. Take a little off one end, spin the board around and take a little off the other end. Then look down the board to see how much further you need to go. If...
