Air Compressor Failure
Set the output pressure to 60 PSI. First, the air compressor has a universal coupling. So I bough to the part that attaches to the hose. The universal coupling doesn't form a solid seal and it leaks a bit. Second, the air gun leaks a lot. I tried using some plummer's tape but it just bubbles up. Then I tried duct tape over that and still bubbles up. Third, the air compressor is loud and the grips hisses even louder. Fourth, the grips do not slide on easy at all. I looked at the FAQ for the grips and tried to follow their process and no go. I got the first one on after about 10 minutes and having to take it back off. I almost blew up the grip the first time.
Since I have to golf tomorrow, and I don't want to keep other people awake who live below or next door to me since I live in an apartment, I'm going old school with double sided tape and solvent. I can do about three golf clubs old style over the air compressor right now.
I might try the air compressor the next time I change grips. Maybe I'll just lug it up to my parents house so I have space to be loud.
On a side note, those with air compressors. Do you guys actually follow the maintenance required for that thing? Mine recommends draining it daily. Which means getting 20 PSI of pressure it in and releasing the drain valve. If not do you fear the compressor blowing up someday then? The thing just freaks me out a bit in a confined space.
