There are extremely easy approaches to your situation.
What I suggest for you is to add one or more remote tanks to your system. You
can purchase small tanks or you can make your own by using old propane tanks,
freon tanks, helium tanks, etc. Obviously, you will want these tanks to have
quick connect fittings. These tanks are handy for several reasons:
1) The are nice portable tanks to put in the trunk of a vehicle for
emergency tire inflation.
2) Take them to the first day of basketball, soccer, football practice for
the tiny tots and you are a hero as you inflate everybody's sports balls
which are down to 4-5 psi.
3) They provide a buffered storage capability for remote operation when
hooked up to your home compressor system.
Some friends and I use EXTREMELY tiny hoses for long runs (200' - 1000')
of compressed air. The hose and the fittings are relatively inexpensive and
the setup works extremely well if:
1) There is sufficient tank capacity at the business end of the system
to provide reserve capacity.
2) We accept the fact that there is a recover time between tool uses.
If you are building a shed 1000' from your air compressor, then you can use
1000' of extremely small improvised air hose plus one or two improvised air
tanks. This setup is not going to be as flexible as that beautiful 60 gallon
tank in your garage (drool !!!), but the average nail gun or roofing nailer
just isn't going to know the difference. If you are doing a huge sandblasting
job 1000' from your compressor, then you are going to have to work in phases as
you wait for the tanks to recover due to diminished air flow in those long runs
of tiny hose. Obviously, you will be using a relatively short and full
standard air hose between the remote tank(s) and the air tool.
For me, this has never been a big problem. Of course, I own several
compressors, including an extremely light-weight portable roof-style unit, plus
several generators. So I can go remote if I need to. But, I can service my
property and many of my neighbors by using dirt cheap improvised tiny diameter
hose plus improvised air tanks rather than dragging around a much heavier
generator and compressor.
By the way, around here I see at least 4 or 5 old-style propane tanks sitting
on the curb on trash day every week. The trash collectors aren't allowed to
take them and I'm doing folks a favor by picking them up. I drain off the
propane into my good tanks and then put those old tanks to use for storing
compressed air. And it is all free.
