An air compressor is a very handy tool used in a variety of situations – be it in a major manufacturing plant or your friendly neighborhood gas stations. Because of its versatility and wide range of use, more and more air compressors are being utilized in home garages, workshops, and basements.
From the seemingly hard core task of powering tools such as nail guns and impact wrenches down to inflating pool toys, the air compressor can get the job done. Moreover, you can now make your own air compressor. By having one, you can power up several tools with just a single motor that will convert the electrical energy into kinetic energy.
All you will need are a few items that you may find lying around in your home or can be bought for a minimal price. The main parts would be the propane tank, which you can get for as little as $10 and a fridge compressor, which you can obtain from an old water dispenser. Move on to the next page to learn more.
