      I run a air dehydrator in my home shop (mostly for the plasma cutter) I can tell ya my tools work alot better at my home shop then they do when I bring them to some other shops that I work at. I hate using them in some of the shops. The water in some shops is ridiculous. Ya may as well hook up to a water hose! After I use them at other shops I run them on my dry air to make sure there good and dry then I give them a good shot of air tool oil.

        Sounds like the air at the universities metal lab. They only had a few classes on machining, primarily for their engineering students to understand how their designs come into existence, so the up-keep was a very low priority. I did some intake porting while on my work study hours and ended up soaked from the water discharging out the tool. Since they mainly run the air in the shop for cooling cutters and blowing away chips - I suppose the water is a free bonus. Not so cool when you need it for running tools.

          i supose it would depend on weather you service the lines, i drain my tank every day to insure i dont colect water, i supose if ya let them go it would reduce the efectiveness of the tools. supose ya could get some water grinders for that school.

            I graduated a few years ago. It was a pretty cool lab assistant gig for being in college though. I had full access to a couple lathes, a bridgeport, and a horizontal mill and grinder plus enough tooling to make all of them very functional. Air really wasn't used on anything for power. The professor who was responsible for maintaining the compressor didn't care and wouldn't let anyone who did do anything about it (it wasn't my boss, he was equally disgusted at the matter).

              Dang, You would think that a guy in this position would just flunk out a couple a years running and hang out for awhile.
