This guy couldn't be bothered to make saddle bends; he simply slipped his new pipe under the pre-existing, PVC air pipe!

I'm actually commenting on the silver EMT, which I know to be new. The white plastic air line, if you look closely, has a nice accumulation of dust atop it.

As for plastic pipe and 100PSI air- well, that's another forum! (You've already seen how the compressor was hooked up- why should the air piping be any more competent?)

If you go back you may want to where a helmet and face shield.

Agreed. It's no secret that plastic pipe is dangerous as a compressed-air conduit; it can shatter if it cracks under pressure.

(I can relate!)
