Woodworking is a unique job, as most of the people find it amusing, but very few can master the tricks and trades of it. If you can perfect your skills in the use of tools required in this trade, you can certainly learn the art of woodworking. It is mostly done in specialized areas and requires diverse skills to manipulate it properly. The accessories used thus a plays a vital role in this art and an air compressor is the better for it.
An air compressor has a LP compressor and a HP compressor, both of which operate through multiple stages. Initially air is smelled via air filter, compressor cylinder where a piston reciprocates for compression and heat is liberated. Then hot air is passed through a heat exchanger for cooling the air down. This process repeats accordingly to the number of stages and the cooler and compressed air, then enters into a receiver and from there goes into an air driver for removal of the moisture content, present in the air. Finally the dry and compressed air is supplied for use.
Now for the sake of different use of compressor in woodworking, some important aspects related to a compressor need to be fed out. Any small or medium shop will require a 2 stage reciprocating air compressors one, two and three sanders respectively. The size of a compressor air tank is essential as a smaller tank uses more electricity for pumping and compressing. A 3 phase power is a must for running the compressor to the fullest with 230v AC. One special consideration should also be given to the tank which can rust internally over time and can explode causing massive damage and may lead to deaths sometimes. So, piping needs to be at its very best. Simultaneously, periodic cleaning should also be done so that there is not much oil deposited on the compressor and in working area. If noise is a criterion in the woodworking shop, you should go for screw type compressors, which do not have any pistons or cylinders unlike in the reciprocating ones.
A wrong air compressor can be a very expensive mistake. So, select the best possible one and turn those woods into useful decorative objects and enhance woodworking skills and promote it throughout the world.
