I’m looking up airkits now, it’d be temping to hook the thing up to our compressor, on one hand you gotta worry about moisture, on the other, for a cutter this cheap, would the moisture really be that much of an issue?
That said, you’d also have to spin up the air compressor for every cutting session, perhaps not something people would want to do due to the maintenance.
…Just my luck, turns out something that I hoped would exist, does.
Perhaps pic related would be the best option?
Hook it right up to the cutters main power switch.
I’m curious what everyone uses for their (hobbyist) systems.
I mean, sure, the big commercial systems where you can just break out the facilities compressed air, run it through thousands of dollars of moisture traps, then into the cutter are COOL and all, but I’m looking for solutions that won’t cost us the earth and back (Preferably with whatever’s left from $700 minus the new K40 minus a new lid for the old one, if there is anything left after that).
$55 USD for a dedicated compressor plus a $8 lens assembly sounds pretty good to me.
