    OFF TOPIC: LF large air compressor

    Hi,
    My little air compressor let me down a few days ago and i'm looking for a large replacement... like 60g or even 80gallons vertical unit.
    I've been to : rona, reno, home-depot, princess auto, canadian tire, sears, preston hardware and found a few units.. but looking for other options/stores. There must be other places around here to get such a thing?

    Also, I do not understand why busybee tools doesn't sell compressors.. it would be right up their alley really.

    any suggestions ?

    I've looked at building one myself, But ends up costing more then purchasing a similar unit already built.

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:
    planning next tank, possibly 60x30x20 on 2x plasma.

    I'd check Costco as well, and then Ottawa Fasteners (in Bells Corners). TSC have some as well.
    58 gallon display, 20 gallon sump, Octopus Recirc 110, Mag9 return. Nova Extreme lighting.
    55lbs live rock.
    Yellow Tang, 2 Clowns, Kupang Damsel, Yellow Watchmen.


    24 gallon AquaPod, 24lbs live rock.
    Valentini Toby, Coral Beauty, various snails, hermits.


    12 gallon AquaPod, 12lbs live rock, lots of mushrooms.

    Get big if you can. I have a 26G and I want bigger. Make sure the CFM is high as well. Some tools won't run if it's too low.

    the farm company has their own bran one.. looks identical to the canadiantire coleman .. same exact look.. just different paint job and same specs.. its 550 on sale at the farm place and 699 at canadiantire. at rona.. same unit sold by porter cable..( same specs and design and look ) is 599. I may wait for one of those scratch and save days and get it at rona. I will go visit ottawa fasteners on Friday morning.
