Isham Tool Kit. I cannot say enough about this kit! Very impressive! Just buy it and don’t think about it anymore.
I spent about 3 months gathering tools and finishing out the new Airplane Factory! I have seen other post that mentions you will need to spend around $6,500 on tools and I have found that to be a very true statement. I have tried to gather everything I need upfront (I know I will need more) and have found that to be an accurate cost guide.
Compressor plumbing: Because my Garage is 35ft long I decided to run copper pipe from the compressor at the back and up to the hose reel at the front. I also put in a connection at the tools bench and another half way down the bay and under the reel (close to the floor) I put in a ball valve so I can drain/bleed off the line/reel. I used an 8ft rubber hose (with quick connect) to connect my compressor to the manifold/plumbing system. I also installed a Miltion air separator and a Kobalt regulator. Most of my air fittings I purchased at Lowes.
