    Wow Wow WOW  …  I did it now!  Just got a new Daystate LC110 compressor. 

    Simple set-up, easy to move around, 110-volt, 3 stage, topped off my 88cu ft, Luxfer tank in 20 mins (3000 to 4600psi).  Came with a 330 bar blow-off adaptor, installed.  

    Very well built.  The fit & finish is awesome!  

    I’m stoked! ​

    intenseaty – pretty simple maintenance.  Change the oil after 50hrs of operation, check the level before each start.  Change the intake filter after 100hrs, bleed off moisture every 10mins of runtime.  Pretty darn simple. 

    Bobrt – thanks man, I’m excited!

    Very nice!  Does it have built-in filter to filter out water and other harmful particles?

    I bought the air venturi compressor 6 months ago, very nice, simple maintenance at half the price of DS.  It has one built-in filter, I added 2 more (breathable filter) before air goes in the CF bottle.

    Not sure about longevity but so far so good, quite, fast filling, not a single hiccup, and it came with a rebuild kit for minor issues.

It comes with a water separator and air filter.  Not the carbon filter/molecular sieve. Maintenance is straight forward and simple.  I only topped off two tanks so far…  both from 3000 to 4600 in just under 20 mins.  I paid $400 less than MSRP(new) … I think it was a pretty good deal!  

    Congrats on your AV.  I hear nothing but positive reviews on them!

    One important thing to note for anyone who buys this compressor, if you don’t have a din 300 tank valve, you need to get an extra long adaptor to attach the compressor fill hose to your charging station..  Pyramid Air sells them.  AoA nor Joe B. have them.   Save yourself some frustration/hair pulling…

    My mistake.  I copied the maintenance items from the manual which has several models and pasted them in the post. I will correct.  
    Thanks for catching this!

    You should add a high pressure filter.  The least expensive way is to order one from Aliexpress.com.  Here is a link:
    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/water-oil-separator-absord-moisture-absord-water-for-dry-and-clean-high-pressure-air/32827947479.html?spm=a2g0s.8937460.0.0.FaZVwFYou can cut the tampon that comes with the filter into 1” sections and use them as end caps.  Fill the space with zeolite 13x desiccant.  You can buy it on ebay.
    Here’s the link:https://www.ebay.com/itm/3-lbs-Molecular-Zeolite-Beads-Type-13X/312090493908?epid=862892059&hash=item48aa0b03d4:g:w4gAAOSwo6lWFpeYThis zeolite can be recharged in a flat pan in an oven at 400 degrees for an hour and reused many times.  This will last you a lifetime.  The filter only needs to be 
    recharged about every 10 hours of compressor run time.  The gold filter from Aliexpress takes about 2 weeks from ordering to arrival.  For an investment of $85, you can save a bunch.  The gold filter is identical to the Diablo filter that AofA sells for $189.   It has less bells and whistles but does the same filtration as the $400 alpha filter.Your compressor water tower bleeds off most of the moisture but a final filter catches the last 1%.  Don’t worry about filling your tank once or twice before you add the filter.  The water separator does most of the work but this is the last bit of insurance.  That is a great compressor for the money.

    I bought this for the AV off eBay, it was 200 bucks now it went up a bit more – double filtration, advertised for breathable air, not sure about all that but sure enough for airguns.  Work great so far.  I made a little platform with casters to have them all in one place and ease to move around.

Thanks for sharing.  I snagged the filter and desiccant that Humdinger suggested. 
    I’d like to see the set-up that you came up with… sounds cool!

    Cool set-up!
    Do you get much moisture out of the 2nd bleed-off?

    I usually bleed from the compressor filter, a lot there.  Next time I’ll try from the second filter to see.  I can tell the combo is doing its job, when I bleed from fill hose, nothing but dry air coming out.  With this filter, you can eventually fill a scuba diving tank as an added bonus if the claim holds true.

    What is inside the filters. Is it a molecular sieve and charcoal?
