It sounds like you're well on your way toward using the Del-Aire system.
As for the compressor I guess that you can find enough people standing

much too quickly. Do not try to verify with my grandkids. <;o))
Over the years I have been attracted to this system but at this moment I
will stick to a manual push rod system. If I were to build a layout
that extends more than 10' then perhaps I'll consider a pneumatic
Just show us pictures of how yours comes out.
