California Air Tools’ 1P1060S Portable Air Compressor

The new 1P1060S Portable Air Compressor from California Air Tools is designed to be one of the quietest air compressors in the industry, generating only 56 decibels of sound. The new “IP” ultra-quiet and oil-free motor has a large, single piston-pump design engineered for high performance and durability. The 0.6-hp motor operates at only 1,680 RPM, creating less noise and less wear. It is designed to have a life cycle before wear of 3,000-plus hours compared to other comparable air compressors with life cycles of 250 hours or less. The oil-free pump allows for use in a variety of different temperatures (cold) and uneven terrains, and the 1.0-gal. steel air tank is a lightweight 29.5 lbs., making it very easy to transport. The 1P1060S compressor produces 1.2 CFM at 90 PSI, allowing you to use staple guns, brad nail guns, finish nail guns, nail guns, airbrushes and blow guns. It’s great for the garage and perfect for cleaning and inflating tires, beds, toys and sport balls, and is ideal for working inside where noise is a major issue.

Titan Deck Foot Anchor

You may have always thought that the IRC insists that all decks must be supported by footings that extend below the frost depth. But that is not so if you are building a deck below a certain size area and it is not connected to a ledger. The Titan Deck Foot Anchor is a no-digging, no-cement, no-sweat solution for supporting freestanding structures like decks, shed platforms, walkways and ramps. It installs quickly with a corded electric 1/2-in. drive impact wrench (350 ft.-lbs. torque for best results). Just remove an 18-in. square portion of sod and any loose soil or organic material until you are on undisturbed soil. Lay down 3 inches of stone dust or 1/2 inch crushed gravel and compact it. Drive down the 24-in. auger until the large load plate contacts the soil, then compress the plate against the gravel by tightening the nut above it. Screw on a 4×4 or 6×6 post bracket and you’re done. A 36-in. auger is available for sandy soil where more uplift resistance is desired or for use on a slope. The footing has been load tested to support a minimum of 19,000 lbs. Because of the post saddle design, you can set beams as low as 2 inches above grade and hang joists from the beam face for very low level decks. You can also build safely up to 6 feet if you brace posts to beams. This makes for a solid structure and is an effective solution for above-ground pool decks where as many as thirty or more footings can easily be required.
