If the climate permits, put the air compressor outside, like in a little shed attached to the outside wall. It will be much less noisy inside when the thing is running. Doug _________________________

What's is the best way to get rid of a junk (10 year old, 130k miles, rusted out flange) catalytic converter that I have? Is there a cost-effective way to get money for it? Or should I just "donate"

The scotch-brites work well because they uniformly roughen up the old paint and are less likely to cut all the way through edges, corners, etc. But you can get them a lot cheaper than at the hardware
