 WOW how many air gunners have been killed so far?i did see two explosions that happened but they were user error not really the fault of the cheap compressor.

We're pretty sure it was an improperly installed breather that caused pressure to build up in the crankcase, which blew the end off it.... It looks like the pressure involved was pretty low, perhaps a good thing the aluminum is so thin.... We're not dealing with an HPA event here....

thanks bob for sweeping the BS away surrounding these cheap compressors.you know they so cheap I decided to order the pressure customized unit and it functions perfectly...I have to admit I knew there was no HPA explosion just by looking at picture...the only problem I had was my girlfriend ask me what was in that big box fed-ex delivered and I told her it was pellets and she ask in a box that big?i said ya and I don't think she believed me...
