    Re: Update on my office layout

    Here is my air compressor setup for cleaning my negatives prior to wet mounting for scanning. Currently use Epson V850. Have a drum scanner on lay away.

    First image show initial water yep nd filter. Lots of water vapor which is unuque for AZ. I use a humidifier in room humidity at 41%. Outside like 12%-17%.

    I use a Simco ionizing air nozzle and ionizing fan to keep dust down.

    Good to see and read Steven

    I bought another tiny compressor that is quieter than my first, which was moved to the big shed

    The ultra flexible air hoses are really good, like your blue one

    I am almost ready for 5X7 V700 wet mount

    Yikes! That's one of the three compressor designs I commissioned them to provide. The very first of the three was prototyped in our own shop, and soon became a national model; but that was a much bigger machine oriented to construction. Rol Air doesn't actually make this particular series of small compressor themselves, but subcontract it. And probably everyone I knew in that organization has themselves retired by now. The US mfg equivalent or predecessor was a much more expensive Thomas model (which I use in my own darkrooms); but when that company relocated to Louisiana, they stopped making portable compressors. So I cajoled Rol Air (Associated Engineering) into coming up with something equivalent - dual piston, quiet, and lower RPM for sake of greater longevity. There's a weird kind of check valve in the system that sometimes clogs; but otherwise they seem pretty reliable. The correct way to collect water is to feed the hose from the compressor up into a length of slightly slanted copper pipe, allowing the air to cool and condense before reaching the separator. But a helical coil of copper can also be used, much like a distillation setup.
