An air compressor can be a valuable addition to your workshop. It attaches to various tools that require pneumatic power. These tools include spray guns for painting, air sanders for sandblasting, or for just simply putting air into the tires of your car.
This DIY video will show you how you can make your own air compressor using items that you may already have lying around or you can buy in your local junk shop. The basic parts of a compressor are a motor to compress the air, a tank to hold that compressed air, and a gauge to measure and limit the pressure.
