Ok, i finally welded some brackets/legs from the ears of the aftercooler to the squirrel cage on the compressor. Everything is plumbed and set, working correctly. The temperature coming out of the pump is 260-270, and at the output of the aftercooler i am seeing around 95-100. 150 degree drop is nice. Now here is the rub: it is condensing at the aftercooler like crazy, so now i think i need a drip leg/water trap directly after the output of the aftercooler. Perhaps in a couple of weeks when i am feeling froggy, but for now it can push the water back into the tank. Between the tank, the water trap in the black pipe, and the desiccant dryer i can't imagine seeing any water at the end of the line. I am now set to run my plasma cutter and start building a welding table. I'll come back and add some pics when i get time tonight.
