Subject:
Drain your compressor every day?

Jim K in Trappe, PA
>Everything I read about compressors says you should relieve the pressure and drain the condensation every day. Do you follow these guidelines? I could see doing it every week, but is it necessary daily?

I also know that you should relieve the tension on your bandsaw when not using it, and never move your toolrest when the lathe is turning, and I agree, YOU should follow these rules. Me however.... ;-)

Just wondering.

Thanks,
