  • air problem update

    A while back, I posted about an air supply problem we were having with the compressor on the CMM. We diagnosed it as a bad pressure switch on the compressor. I've been living with it ever since. It has been AWFUL. Every two to three minutes, the machine hasn't enough pressure to continue and stops with the dreaded "air pressure lube fault."


    We got our new pressure switch in today from Jun_Air, and after about an hour and a half of fiddling with it, I got the new switch installed and it is running GREAT now.

    we had to get a larger compressor...the two we had couldn't keep up with the demand by all the additional machines in the shop

    glad you got it fixed

    Which one gets ridden today? MPH vs MPG..tough choice, both are FUN
