Hi Think3D

(not stealing your post) when I read your title it reminded me of a post I made quite a while back so thought here would be a good place to maybe add to the discussion :?:

Just added the link from my original post mentioned above:
https://www.pclairtechnology.com/dropou ... ts-pdo600s

I never did pull the trigger on the PCL unit and they were far cheaper back then but still think it might have some legs, maybe for Christmas or when I get my table put back together again :!: :!: :!:
But that's another very long story and has a lot to do with some peoples perception of what good customer service and support really is :(

maybe some of the sites more experienced/knowledgeable users might chime in on this subject

There has been articles about a DIY version of that unit and it is called a "Franzinator air dryer"
Some load it with stainless steel brillo pads to help separate the water inside the tube.
