1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    They are definitely 2 stage Peter, they are as I described earlier, deffo (my daughter has taught me some modern language, "deffo" apparently means definitely).

    As well as being vertical I would have the output going to the bottom of the first filter and out through the top going to the bottom of the second filter and the output of that filter going to the bottle or gun.

    Regards
    Peter

    I actually have the opposite of that but I can see your logic, sometimes for me the practicalities take over. I am happy that my set up is giving clean dry air, so I shan't flip about with it anymore (well not tonight anyway :facepalm:).

    I might have lied in my last post, only my first big black filter is upside down.

    Always go with what you are happy with, it's your set up and there is probably not much in it either way unless there's tons of moisture and lots of oil.

    Regards

    I don't think anything but odour is getting past the first 2 tampons and the big black filters are removing that.

    As a test today I ran the compressor for ten minutes at 200 bar through three tampons, the far end of the third was totally clean..

    Changing the oil question,

    do you guys give the compressor a quick run to warm the oil prior to draining, or do you do it with the compressor cold?

    Give it a few seconds run just to lift the crap off the bottom of the sump, then tip the compressor up as far as I can and drain..

    @Lee G I do it when I have finished charging so the oil is hot and all the dirt is in suspension, then the same as Mike, tip the comp. to help get it all out.

    How often do you guys change the oil as a rule of thumb

    I was changing the oil every use when new, I now tell me self it's every hour but thinking about it I do it every three runs now which is about half an hour, if it gets to where the oil is clean on a change then I shall push it out further. At the moment it looks ok in the glass but when I drain it into a jug it is discoloured, but doesn't have any of the blackness it had to start with.

    I have just topped the bottle up and changed the oil. Charged the 7L bottle from 260 to 300 bar (yes I've been told it's wrong but I charge the gun to 230 and use 20 bar a day so there ain't a lot of point in doing any less) took less than 10 minutes and the temp was 42.5C maximum.

    Had an external fan, 2 x 1L bottles of ice in the input bucket, put the exhaust to any empty 10L, added one 10L to the input, put the exhaust to the now empty 10L after about 5L into that empty it was charged.

    When the compressor was new I changed it after about half an hour running, now I change it when the oil looks dirty through the level indicator, which is about an hour to hour and a half of running.. That sounds like I change it often but if I only run the compressor for 10 minutes per session the time between changes is more realistic..
    Thinking about it, that would equate to every 6 - 10 runs..

    If I have already told you this just put it down to old timers. My air pump and stones arrived the other day so I put it to the test with the air pumping through the input water tub and the exhaust straight back into it. The temperature started to climb rapidly, the air had no appreciable cooling effect. Ice and separate output bucket is the doggies danglies.

    If your air is room temp that might also add to the heating.

    If your using ice, a second pump circulating the water should increase the cooling

    Changed the oil today, which was a very dark colour when it came out.

    Cooling, I run an additional pump in the water container, the one I was left over with, after upgrading the pump. This enables better cooling.

    Four stage filtering, first stage with its big empty chamber, caught most of the oil as you can see from the filter pictures

    Even with a prolonged run on my 12ltr tank, the temperature, never went above 42 degrees

    Im not using a fan for additional cooling yet

    Thanks for all the help and advice to help get me to this stage
