Do you suppose the input current of the Draper is really 13 amps or have they just put that to show that you can run it off a normal 3 pin domestic plug?Posted 4 years ago
I was looking for a small portable compressor but the integrated ones are expensive – I have 2.8kw genny which wouldn’t be enough if that was really 13 amps input. The 0.147kw bit doesn’t make much sense either.GEDAMember
I use a pop bottle with two valves in it. Take the valve out of one and attach a pressurised hose to it. Take the valve out of the wheel and attach the hose to it. You may need zip ties on the hose.
Now pump up the pop bottle to 80 with kink in the hose. Then release the hose and your tyre should inflate in a jiffy. I followed the advice of DrP on this forum.Posted 4 years agoMarkLGMember
You need something with an air tank. You’re looking at £100-120 ish for a decent quality 24 litre compressor. Have a look in your local Machine Mart to get an idea of what’s what.Posted 4 years ago
Once you’ve got one in the garage there’s loads of things you can use it for, other than blowing up push bike tyres. 😉oldnpastitMember
If you’re just inflating tubeless, then use the 9p diy compressor (as above @GEDA).
Big empty bottle of lemonade.
A length of plastic tubing.
A track pump.
I’ve used it loads of times now and it’s awesome. Search on here for lots of threads on how to make one.Posted 4 years ago
