Re: [T3] air compressors


I guess in winter you wouldn't get too much moisture in the air anyway.
I get a good dribble from mine here in the UK, even when in use for only a
relatively short time.  It's easy for the cooling effect as the air pushes spots
of water out for the water to freeze.  I like Russ' air-bleed that stops it
building up.
 Mine is a horizontal tank though - not so handy for keeping drained.
