        I wonder then, if one could pipe the output of a small compressor 
(like the ~2bhp one mentioned) to the input (removing the baffleing 
system that seems standard on most) of another, somewhat larger one...  
Seems like a lot more likely to cause problems if the second compressor 
can't deal with the already compressed air, but...  might it work?
