For being cheap but having lots of tools this might be the best solution for me,
Bought Davy filter tower and dryer from Shanghai. Comes with repackable filter and safety valve. Fittings and bleed valves and gauge included.
For me this hits the bill on cheap compressor, 193$ shipped on dhl express. I’m going to hydro test the towers for my own peace of mind and fitting quality bolts on the safety valve, just a precaution that doesn’t really cost anything.
Can you give an assesment of those filter/dryer quality wise?
Quality is ok(ish) you just need to deburr the O-ring grooves for they are very sharp and will eventually cut the rings.
Did hold ok in hydro test, no drama and no deformation of any kind.
Filter is a bit small considering how much molecularsieve it holds but other than that its ok.
So this saga continues, stopped making pressure again. Well number three rings didnt hold too long, changed material and now am waiting for new valve springs to arrive.
Hopefully I can get the parts asap and get the pump going again.
