In a discussion on a Facebook group that I belong to regarding using compressed air tools and moisture control, I shared my budget solution. It really doesn’t do anything to "dry" the air coming from the compressor, but the simple gravity "separator" likely help a little when using shop tools. My biggest issue is that when using oil-based paints, a little moisture can get through and will ruin a paint job and that having a dryer in-line might be helpful.
I wonder what could be done inexpensively to dry the air before getting to the paint gun like the inline desiccant dryers? Maybe I could just add desiccant to my existing separator???
