I'm not sure which forum this should go in, so am putting it here to be safe, since I suspect the answer is political.
I bit the bullet and bought a Porter-Cable compressor and nail gun set. Read this thread a while back:http://forum.beemaster.com/index.php/topic,34850.msg288615.html#msg288615
and think I got the same kit that JP pointed out.
Never having used one of these I was reading all the manuals and trying to figure the stuff out, before going crying to my front neighbor who works with this stuff for a living.
I also picked up a blow gun, thinking that would be pretty handy. Then learned that a coupler/plug thingy is needed to attach the blow gun to the hose. If you Google "tru-flate 12-225 plug" the first hit is to Amazon which has a picture of the one I picked up at the local hardware. Although mine is silver and not green.
So being highly bored yesterday (ahem, which is why I was rambling in the sequester thread) I actually read the little cardboard packaging that came with the plug. On the back it says:Warning: This product contains or produces a chemical known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm.
Say what now? Is this just Cal. being Cal.? Although even for them I don't see what their reasoning could possible be. My oncologist never told me to "avoid pneumatic tools and equipment" so am having a hard time understanding this. Maybe the text on the packaging was meant for Tru-Flate cigarettes?
