Does anyone know if there is a small waterproof (or can be made waterproof) 12v compressor capable of at least 125psi to fit in the hull of a model sub. Where available etc.

Say Car. There are several articles in the Subcommittee report dealing with air compressor type systems. #s 42 and 43 if my memory serves me correct. Those guys picked up small tire inflator 12 volt compressors that you can pick up in an auto parts store. There was a fellow that posted here a while back and he said he bought a very good compressor at a place called Thomas Industries. (318) 387 4280.

Say Carch. My memory let me down, (it's been doing that lately) :o). It should be issues number 26 and 27. Cheers, c.j.g.

Thanks I'll check it out. I was trying to find a compressor for one of those automatic blood pressure monitors. No luck yet.

Your right, Thomas Industries has a nice compressor, right size, and 100 psi, but its $190. Still an option though. thanks

Consider making your own by acquiring a kit/model of a
simple steam engine (more precisely: an oscillator).
you will need a lathe for it..

have a look at my post in the tips& hints section
for entrypoints into the lathe/steam world
