That’s what I hope to do. I have an oiled and an oilless, both 40 gal tanks and I want to put them together to make a decent air compressor.

I’m not sure how it’ll work, but I suppose I could start by just plumbing them together so that their compressed side shares reservoirs etc. I’m assuming they have check valves to keep the air from escaping back out through the compressor. It’ll be an interesting project. Bookmark or save this page to keep track of the progress.

Can I combine two air compressors?
