The exceptional people at Campbell Hausfeld just dropped off this incredible air compressor for me to try out.

CH Compressor

This 30-gallon model is quite the step up from the 6-gallon pancake compressor that I had.  The increased size should give me much more versatility in terms of the types of tools I can run.

In addition to the free compressor, I was also able to sit down and talk to a couple of experts from Campbell Hausfeld.  I consider myself a moderate-level woodworker and have tackled a fairly wide range of mid-level DIY projects.  However, my eyes were really opened to the new possibilities that come with a larger air compressor.

I plan to use this space to document my new experiences and exploits…
