Interested in any feedback or comments that I may want to consider. Top is 30” off floor. Large vessel is just above elbow height at centerline. Will be adding pop-off and regulator for small vessel. Vacuum pump will go on bottom. On wheels. Free workspace also on backside behind elevated tank.

Big pot is California Air Tools 5 gallon, pot only, no accessories that I bought new online for less than $200 in the fall, then added $100 worth of mods to. LOL. Stinking brass fittings are expensive. I wanted it because I can go 11” wide and 12” long if needed.

Very nice setup. Reminds me of a control room in a WWII submarine movie!

Just out of curiosity why do you need a oil/water separator on the pot?

Don’t know that you would need one but I put it there because I generally do not use one on the compressor and already had that one on the bench.

As I generally use my compressed air for blowing and cleaning I do get some moisture in from time to time. Prefer to drop it out before it had a chance to hit any uncured castings, especially since I plan to do some larger flat surfaces pieces in the big pot.
