Yes, that's it....guess I am getting a little dyslexic.....Air Chem....Chem
Air.....well I was close enough that somebody figured it out...

One other thing to remember.....make a flexible connection between your air

using a large diameter high pressure hose....I had a shop make me up such a
fitting out of hydraulic hose.
