    Darn, Larry beat me to it. I've used basically the same setup as he describes for some underwater drilling.

    My method does not require a 7 foot hose, and you don't have to wrap it around your neck.

    My lady-friend said that exact same thing. But, the context was different.

    Our compressors at work turn on at 125PSI and turn off at 175PSI and no regulators are used. I have some air tools that are almost 20 years old and still going strong, I dont think the 135-145PSI IP of a first stage will be a problem.

    I started a similar thread awhile ago, but I could not find it.

    Some of the newer air ratchets seem to be more difficult to disassemble than older units. Is that just my impression?

    The blue 'H' means that it is safe to dive with.
