Would Quonset style buildings be in the running, you can cut out many of the trades mentioned and do it yourself?

Giving this a 2nd thought. Would be faster.

Going bigger now too.......

Pex and air can be scary. Remember air is double water 100 psi air is like pumping 200 psi water in it. One little scratch it could be a pop there are better products then pex. That isn’t to expensive ! Steal. Is dirt cheap and safe

I’ll get some prices together for you. On some types of pipe even 1/2 copper isn’t to expensive. How much feet are you looking at running ?

harvester_sorrow 03-03-2018 01:01 PM

PVC is a no no. It shatters under pressure. Pex , or PEX AL PEX according to my searching is used all the time for air. That's what some of the rapid air kits are. Was thinking of L copper too.
Be around 200 feet

Don't use steel air has moisture moisture +steel =rust
Rust flakes and air tools don't go well together
My buddy's shop was done in abs (I think )white pipe glued joints pipe rated for 300 psi
Almost 30 years no blow outs or leaks

We do air lines all the time in steel we just have a inline dryer other wise we use gal or aluminum or if we want to be really fancy we do stainless

Plus and minus with all the different methods. I've read lots about the different materials people have used.
