Hey All,

new to the group and would like to post a general question. Just built my own LPE, and it works fine (by fine I mead at least the cylinders move). However, I am just using a bike pump right now so don't really have any idea how it really performs. I am going to go and buy an air compressor but don't know what I am looking for. I view youtube videos showing LPEs but never hear the compressor.... how is that done? Compressors are very loud. Do I need one with a tank? what is the difference between using a compressor versus like an electronic inflator? Thanks everyone...

Hi! I'm also interested in LPE's but I don't have pneumatics. Anyway, I think that the only parts needed are:
1 - Tubes;
2 - Switchers;
3 - Pneumatics;
4 - Air Pump (it is also a Pneumatic);
5 - Air tank.
If you have this, you can build a LPE.
