I am having this annoying problem with my 6-1/2 horse, 60 gallon, 120 psi
single stage air compressor. The problem is not enough air! Whenever I am
running the blast cabinet, or a die grinder or air drill, the maximum I can
maintain with the compressor running non-stop is 60 psi. This makes for a
lot of wasted time. I also worry about how long the compressor will last
since I spent 6 days at 10 hours a day sandblasting where the thing never
shut off.

So, my question before I am forced to go drop $1300 on a 2 stage 7 1/4 horse
that I understand will maintain at least 90 is.....

Is it possible to buy another single stage identical to the one I have, hook
them together with one airline sharing both units and get twice the
capacity? That would cost me only another $400. If so, what are the problems
with doing this?

Thanks again!
