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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

    No one doubts that there are many companies badging the same product and making a buck, however we cant guarantee they are "identical" or actually the same item or the same quality of build can we?

    In reality is my OMEGA TURBOCHARGER worth £2200? not in the scheme of things, why though would someone pay £100 to see a load of overpaid morons kicking a sack of air round a patch of grass?

    Fair enough LOL! I have often found though that said item when it arrives looks absolutely nothing like the image on the bay!

    This is getting tedious.
    The subject of the thread is Omega compressors, yet there seems to be this fixation in some quarters of comparing the chinese offerings with any or all other pumps that are mentioned or offered up for dicussion.
    I have read and contributed positively to numerous threads on the Yong Heng and Davv derivative pumps, picking up some useful information in the process, but I find it, metaphorically speaking, irritating when a discussion focussed on apples surrepticiously morphs into a rerun discussion on the merits of oranges.

    Will be hard to beat the tuxing or Yong hengs, maybe one can mod these to run slower...
    The trouble is if it runs slower people would run them even longer so catch 22

    The nomad had a s****y electric scooter motor in it, wondering what drives yours take the cover off for us when you get it

    Bigger is better in compressors.

    I don’t trust any reviewer unless he rips the whole thing apart proving he is worthy

    Ok I will be watching this thread as I am interested in finding a good one to , but I will tell you keep well away from Chinese compressors the cheap knock ups , first hand I can tell you they are dangerous , I use to work in a car yard and the guy use to do a little paint work on the side . our old English made very old I might say compressor died and was going to be 2 arm and a leg to fix and the parts had to be sourced the guy said ,the boss said oh f that I run get one of them cheap ones I think at the time it was Cost** it came from we where out in the yard one day stripping bits and heard what we thought was a bomb going off out in the main road we ran up the yard and saw the garage door hanging off and the guy that had been using the compressor laying on the floor lucky for him the car took the blast when it went , never been tempted by the cheap ones .
    But again like scopes they all seam to be made in china but some companies use better quality parts .
    Just my 2 pence worth

    I know a fair few guys with the £199 Yong Heng compressors who use them at least once a week and are delighted with them.
    Some have been using them for years.

    the top tips with these is to keep the oil clean and topped up when needed,

    allow cooling time when doing large fills

    use them to top-up from 150-300 bar rather than try to fill totally empty tanks
