Hi Seth

Thanks for the input, it's a tough one to call as in different photos it looks a different shade.

No price on the senco one as yet but I don't think it will be any cheaper than the Schneider version. I took a rush of blood to the head a few weekends back wile I was still laying in bed and bought the sysmaster set from gerschwitz, and a couple of pin guns also  [big grin]

If you have a chanse to compare the Schneider to a Senco 1010 noise wise I would be interested in hearing your opinion on is the 68 vs 90dB rating real or marketing decibels one way or the other...

I've got the Senco one myself and its quite quiet, but don't feel comfortable to grind off the handle to fit it into a systainer and thinking about the Scheiner one as an option, but being put off with the loud rating of it.
The sky's the limit in my workshop, literally. [big grin]

Very nice set.  [cool]

Also curious about the noise, and about a question that came up in this thread before: are the systainers black or anthracite?

You can just take the feet off and it drops into a sys 5 on its back.

I don't have or know anyone with a senco 1010 to compare with but I will take a video and a decibel reading when I get it set up either tomorrow or Monday.

Regarding the colour it is anthracite.

I only have one problem and that is the Bostitch nailer came with a 1/4 npt fitting and won't connect to my airline. What do I need to get to make it work, 3/8 npt or 3/8 bsp? I bought it from America on amazon.com so I'm assuming 3/8 npt? There are so many different fittings and it is confusing me, not that that is hard to do anyway haha. The grex pin gun I got from Rutlands fits no problem and if I measure the end of the fitting on it it is 3/8. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Morning. So the top systainer holds hose only and the kit you bought from Gerschwitz also includes a sys-cart. Is there anything else in the kit? Can you tell us little more about the Bostitch Brad Gun? It's Functions and what it did cost to get it from the states?

Found some Dutch webshops: toolnation
senco-shop

Toolnation also sells the schneider in senco trim (as expensive as that festool version): link

The kit i bought with the compressor came with a roll board and a sys2 inside which was the hose and a blow gun. My main reason for opting for this set was to get the colour coded sys2 and the air hose as i wanted to keep my hose and guns with the compressor in as small a setup as possible, and also because i knew for sure the hose would work with the compressor. I don't know an awful lot about airline connections so i just played it safe.

Heres a link to the exact spot i bought it from - http://www.gerschwitz.net/schneider-druckluft/mobile-kompressoren/schneider-systainer-kompressor-sysmaster-150-8-6-wxof-set-universal-i800025.html

If you use google chrome to open that link there will be a pop up at the top of the screen which will translate everything for you, its the only reason i knew what i was doing!


As for the bostitch nail gun i opted for it because of the much smaller nose of the gun and for the fact you don't have to press it into the surface of the work, i would do an awful lot of small beading and both these features appealed to me. I was for buying the grex 18g brad nailer until i came across this bostitch one and i thought i would give it a try. I bought it off amazon.com and all in it cost around 130euro or about £97

Trouble with the US bostitch stuff is the thread on the gun is npt. Ok if you have the same quick fitting on your hose .

I just bought a bostitch hose off amazon.com and I've cut off the threaded ends, just need to get some bsp ones fitted now

On bostitch uk website this smart point nailer is shown but i cant find any uk stockist that actually sells them.

Did the £97 price include postage and customs and taxs etc, as i have never ordered from amazom.com only.

You can get npt to bsp adaptors. Just google it as i dont know how to add a link.

I seen it on Bostitch uk also but as you said I couldn't find anywhere to purchase it either.

Yes £97 was postage and customs included, Amazon calculates customs at the time of order so you pay for everything in one transaction.

I finally found an adaptor that I think will work, ordered it this afternoon so hopefully that's sorted when it gets here.

Thats good that its all sorted when order is placed.

I have ordered from woodpeckers, and when parcel arrived in uk i got a letter detailing the charges that needed to be paid when i picked up the item from the sorting centre, with customs charges, uk vat and plus some sort of handing fees etc its a good job i was sat down as i would have fallen over.

Could you post a link for the adaptor and let us know how good it is, seems very good and a good price also.

Yea I know what you mean, I was caught out before when I ordered a tripod and was hit with the custom charges  [eek]

Here's the adaptor I went for http://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/371009569133?nav=SEARCH

I may be hit for customs on this as I bought it on eBay and wasn't charged for any, but maybe as it's such a small item custom charges aren't necessary. I don't really know how it works.

Adaptor look good in that its all in one piece and is swivelling, but i hope the end is what we in the uk refer to as 'euro' since there are various versions but look similar.

I must remind you that Schneider has no input air filter, unlike Senco
When working in dusty environments recommend doing it yourself, inside there is enough space for it.

You'll be ok customs wise with that adapter it's below the limit. The hose I just ordered came to £17 Inc delivery and there were no charges. The way Amazon US ships now is great you get all the fees at checkout so no surprises.

Anything below £15 in value mc luring shipping does not require you to pay import duties from outside of EU.

The difference between 90dB and 75dB is more than HUGE.

I used to run an old Senco compressor that was around 98dB and even when placed in an adjacent room it was a riot...  I now have the silenced version that is around 68dB and that is not a problem at all - even when placed right in the room where you are working.
I have an italian oil lubricated compressor which runs at around 40dB, or slightly less. It is directly underneath a sketching table in the, one meter from where I sit and you can hardly hear it. If you are talking to someone you simply don't register it.

Hi chaps, just got mine this morning but they have this type of coupler installed on the compressor:

https://www.schneider-airsystems.com/Products/Pages/Product-Detail.aspx?pid=E700001&name=Quick-release-couplings-with-male-thread-SK-NW7-2-G1-4a




... and I'd like to connect this little guy (the male part on the right of the image):


Did I miss something ? I'd like to avoid having to change all the couplers.

Schneider have these couplers:

--- EDIT ---

It works !!! But it's super hard to inserty and I had to push really hard into the compressor to lock the hose. Weird.

Hi guys,

Here are two video for you to look at.
The least I can say is...darn this compressor is loud.  [crying] [sad]

The Systainer is awesome, love the graphite color and bright yellow...but c'mon....the manual says Lwa sound power level @ 90 and Lpa4 sound pressure level at 4 meters distance @ 90.

I got these  infos at 1 meter distance (ok iPhone app so the measurements are not super accurate obviously)
