Just a simple little cart I made after swapping my Makita MAC2400 twin tank for this California Air horizontal 10 gallon to get more capacity. I decided to go side by side with the air hose reel so I could park it under my counter as well as make it easy to remove the compressor if I need to take it to a job site or drain it. The platform is built from 18mm Baltic Birch plywood, the rear wheels are fixed casters from an old Husky rolling tool cabinet, at the front is a leveling foot from a Kreg router table and the foot operated lifting mechanism is from a set of workbench casters. It rolls smoothly, parks solidly and does not move when pulling the hose out. Also, raising it up brought the handle height high enough that I do not need to bend over making it much easier to move around than lifting the front of the compressor and rolling it on the rear wheels.

Great idea! How do you like the California air compressor? I’ve been thinking of upgrading to one. Especially like the lower decibel spec

Thanks

Thanks! I really like this California Air and one of the main reasons I bought it was due to how quiet it is since I work in an attached garage (my wife can barely hear it inside our “echo chamber” all hardwood and tile floors with no carpet house). I honestly did not even look at the specs since I mainly use it for a brad nailer and just needed more capacity however I found it also recovers quickly (as quiet as the Makita was it was tiring having it come on as often as it did)
