My compressor isn't nearly the size George installed but still didn't want it taking up floor space either . I mounted the old single cylinder , 30 gl tank above the garage in the storage area. I had an old furnace relay to turn it on by a toggle sw. in the garage Also ran pvc underground with a 3/8" air line and thermostat wire inside to the workbench in the basement of the house .An air regulator, filter and a toggle sw. to turn the compressor on without going to the garage. Here's the relay with toggle sw. mount, small wire coning out the bottom goes to the house.

Very nice Al. How come everyone keeps bringing up my compressor? LOL.

I like the idea of having the remote control for the compressor.

Cool idea Al.
Only thing I have to say about "what is an air compressor?" is that it a device used by many to start a thread that lasts for 18 pages, mostly of which is BS, disguised by a phony heading that everyone knows is a fancy way of saying, "OPEN BS SESSION" lol.
