What can I do with 8-gal air tank?

1572 Views 5 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Mattia.R
I'd like to incorporate an 8-gal portable air tank that I've had for years into my pancake air compressor, but the compressor shuts off at 135psi and the portable air tank is rated for 125psi. I've not found a way to lower the shutoff pressure on the porter-cable. Any ideas.

A secondary regulator between the pancake and the portable, set to stop the portable at 125, and continue to pressurize the pancake.

Plumbed in series, with the outlet hose after the portable.

It all will need to be mounted on a carrier, so the unit can be transported to the next job.

Looking forward to seeing your creation.
