excellent unit

Comments On Feb 19, 2014:have used both tanks for different sized woods/needs and this system works flawlessly. But, I have had better results/success using Cactus Juice instead of the TMI resins, using the recommended coloring dyes, great color penetration. compressor running @ 120 PSI I maintain a constant 25Hg (at 2500 feet altitude) definitely recommend if needing to fortify softer/spalted woods for turning. Spalted Maple and Spalted Tamarind come out completely workable, and awesome color variations when dying with the Stick Fast dyes...... have used red, blue, and violet, all with great success.
