Dan, when I filled my Oasis comp I did not measure how many ounces I put in but I just filled it halfway on the sight glass is that okay? This compressor really kicks a$$, I never had a problem since I bought it. The noise is not loud at all, it is mounted on the truck bed and I can't hear it running inside the truck with the windows closed until I moved the air intake filter inside the truck. Now I can hear the hiss sound which is good for me so I know when the comp is running.

When the oil level is near the top, it has about 10 ounces which is optimal. When it's near the bottom, it has about 8 ounces which isn't exactly the minimum but that's when oil should be added. When the oil level gets below 7 ounces there's the danger of damaging the crankshaft and rod bearings. You probably have about 9 ounces in it.

If you ever hear the pump sound like a chirping bird, that's usually due to a lack of lubrication and some damage has occurred. Even if the pump seizes there's a chance you can get it to work again. You have to unmount the compressor, put oil in the pump at least to the bottom of the sight glass, and turn the coupler that's connected to pump with channel lock plyers. If it will turn the full 360 degrees it might work again. Finish filling the pump to the top of the sight glass, hold the compressor or bolt it down to something and apply power. It will be noisier, may deliver a little less CFM, and discharge oil a little faster but it should still pressurize to 200 PSI.

Sorry, we're too small to afford giveaways. If you know of a great place where a bunch of people gather, like a fair or trade show, you could buy 2 compressors and raffle one of them so you make enough to cover the expense of the other...lol

Try really small. 1 owner, 2 employees (myself included), and 1 part time temp.

I see us getting quite bigger with some very lucrative customer leads. About 3 or 4 that started inquiring last year are evaluating or have already elvaluated our compressor and are wanting hundreds per year with increasing quantities in the following years.

I'm sure that's still small compared to Viair but it's really big for us.

If those customers come through, I'd be willing to bet we'll hire 1 or 2 assemblers.

It's a long way from Delaware if you're willing to move. The cost of living isn't too bad except for rent or a mortgage. Electricity will be going up thanks to the idiots in this state that passed a proposition for greener energy. Fortunately, the weather here is usually so nice that you don't need to run a heater or air conditioner 24/7.
