all this chit-chat about it
finally said 'duh, maybe we ought to start it'
boy is it noisy
says no serviceable parts inside
ok we can't swear it says that somewhere
BUT
any ideas about putting some white grease
on it somewhere to quiet it down?

gentlemen
looked it over
two screws on bottom and
two tabs on ends
looked through vent
can see hose from compressor
to fitting in case
going to run it some more
see if it quiets down

there just noisy. I quit using mine. Got a small 2 gallon 1/4 hp compressor from HF for $50 at 1 of there blowout sales. It is about as loud running, but with the tank, it cycles once about every 10 mins, for a few mins

we'll leave it be for now
BUT WHEN WE DO TAKE IT APART
after loosening cover
have to disconnect hose
from compressor to cover
before it can be lifted
all the way off
