I like it!! I use those pancake compressors all the time on jobs, I hate hearing them run so I try to stick it as far away as possible- even if I need 150' of hose!!
You could sound proof the cabinet and just drill holes for the cord and hose and sell that setup!!

Thanks Gunny, only problem i see is they throw off quite a bit of heat to fully enclose. :)

Fixing a place to keep the tools all together is a great idea.

That's true.
I bought a 25 gal stand up compressor for my shop. Actually put a small addition on just to put it behind a closed door so I dont have to hear it. Also got my dust collector in as well giving me more square footage.

Nice job! Looks like you could keep it in the kitchen now! :D
I hate that noise too. I have a 27 gallon one in my garage. I purposely got a belt drive one cause it was quiet. Well......more quiet. :D

Hahaha well that's a good afternoon! I'm having a coffee cause I just got up.
Had another buddy get hit last week. He is an MC guy but a good guy. Thought he was gonna lose a leg but they saved it. Broke both arms and a lot of other problems.
Man! It's like combat this year.

That's exactly the reason I never got a motorcycle- people around here drive with their heads up their azzes!

LOVE THE LATCH!

BTW, put it far away and use lots of large diameter hose. The extra hose increases the size of the tank!

I was really curious when I saw the title. That is super handy. I've got a 5hp two-stage Ingersol-Rand and my brain was just racing trying to figure out how someone would build a cabinet for it. Your solution is perfect though. I've got a Hankison air dryer attached to mine so I would have to build an entire armoire for it. Plus, I've got it lag bolted into the garage floor ... so not as handy.
