    Another story on the dangers of an air compressor

    While we don't know the root cause with 100% certainty as of yet, we can all speculate...

    FOX31 Denver: Denver couple displaced after air compressor flies into their home.
    https://kdvr.com/news/denver-couple-...to-their-home/


    Here's a Youtube video without the FOX31 baggage but doesn't show much outside of the house damage:



    You have to wonder where the compressor ended up.

    Agree on the Gofundme page which have gotten out of hand. Talk about a great idea that's being abused. Also, you can bet they have had 10 lawyers call them by now and before all is said and done, they will sue for mental anguish and PTSD.

    But that was not the point of my posting...

    my compressor is bolted into the cement floor with lag bolts and the steel feet isolated with thick rubber pads so it doesnt vibrate...but I think with enough force to launch that tank, the bolts would let loose too...

    Seriously stuff like this should be pulled as someone who really isn't aware could kill or be killed by attempting this.

    Knew a guy that did something like this in the late 80's, blew a 6'x6' hole in his concrete block garage wall. 120PSI ruptured the vertical seam in the tank. If it hadn't happened at 2 AM somebody could have been hurt.
