    I bought my Shoebox Freedom 10 about a month ago when I noticed they dropped the price to $499.  I finally got around to using it today.  I have to say I am very pleased.  I was impressed on how fast it topped my tank off.  I bought it thinking it was a “turn it on in the morning and come back at the end of the day” kind of a deal (which I was fine with).  I accomplished what I needed in about 2 hours.  Here is a rundown from my 68cf Tiger Shark tank at 2500psi:
    10:12AM – started F10 with tank at 2500psi
    11:15AM – tank at 3500psi
    11:48AM – tank at 4000psi
    12:06PM – F10 shut off at 4300psi
    I did not try to adjust the auto shutoff feature to go another 200psi to 4500.  Maybe next time but 4300 is fine for me.  In the future, now I can fill myself, I will top off my tank when it gets down to around 3000psi.  So I should be able to top my tank off in about 1.5 hours based on how it went today.

    That’s excellent,  such a good feeling not having to run to the scuba store or what have you to get it filled huh?  I LOVE having a compressor.  That’s quicker than I thought they were too.

    A shooting buddy picked one up also, seemed like a simple choice. They are  slower, but with years and many units behind them at that price no brainer. We are planning a project with a case that incorporates a little of all I’ve seen here. Something free standing and portable with the fittings and filters secured

    I recently started using a new Shoebox F10 and I’m liking it too. Prior to the air entering the SB I have (in sequence) 70 ft air line, Harbor Freight Central Pneumatic 40 micron Mini Air Line Filter – item #68225, ebay Wilkerson Desiccant Air Dryer – X06-02-000, ebay Wilkerson 5 micron Miniature Compressed Air Filter – F08-02-SK00, 15 ft of air line and then a Home Depot Husky Air Line Desiccant Filter/Dryer. As air exits the SB it passes through another desiccant filter similar to those that come with Yeng Hong compressors. After the fill 50% the Wilkerson Desiccant Air Dryer silica had changed color, but the HD desiccant filter/Dryer had no color change. The high side filter trapped some silicone oil and the desiccant had changed color. I’ll might add a molecular sieve on the high side.

    Sure beats driving to the paintball shop and the wait time for fills. The fills were always hot and and they only gave me 1 more fill after short cool off period. By the time I got home the tank was down to 4250 psi.

    Red tide what kind of filter do you have on the exit side of the shoebox before it goes into your tank or gun ?

I’m using this one >> https://www.ebay.com/itm/PCP-Airgun-Filters-separators-/183003012198

    Try a “Best Offer” of $25.00 and maybe a couple bags of filters too. Pack in as much desiccant as you can between the filters without crushing the beads.

    That’s the one I bought.  Worked great and seems to appropriately sized for the F10.  I added some silica beads in it and the first few beads next to where the air leaves the pump where slightly discolored but the rest were fine.
