    Re: Need some help from the brain trust

    They make air storage tanks to take to an area that doesn't have air. My neighbor and cousin has one that I borrow when I need some air for tire on my tractor out in the field. It holds enough to inflate a tire or run a air wrench long enough to remove it. I have used it to force diesel through lines when a tractor runs out of fuel.

    Good idea, Fred. At one time there were "Army / Navy" stores. Really just military surplus. Sometimes I could find a surplus oxygen tank in these stores. These tanks were good high pressure vessels.

    BTW - Don't try using an old commercial refrigerant tank. They just aren't designed for multiple uses. IIRC JC Whitney was selling conversion kits at one time.
