The DR comes with a water separator and can be drained with a button on the bottom.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

Thanks Smallfoot, we can't get the DR up here in the GWN for a decent price but there are a couple similar ones.

What do they hit you for? tariffs across the border? If you look it up on Amazon, do they give you guys different prices or different shipping rates?

First thing is the .30 cents on the dollar then the duties to cross the border I picked up a very similar one with all the same features for $361.00 Canadian including shipping.

They got ya'll going and coming. Give us a review on it and some info when you find out. I've known for years that you get what you pay for generally. If I had a full tilt shop going and depended on this device for a living, I might go for a high dollar rig, but the times are likely to be few(reality may prove me wrong) that I'll really need it, as I've been making little ones out of big ones for years and years without it... I can see some time saving involved though when a tough job comes along. And a whole bunch of coin on cutting disks.
What little bit I've done with it so far lets me know it's capable. It'll be up to me to get decent with it. I'm still playing with air pressures and I don't have my motorcraft filter plumbed in yet. I just got it yesterday but haven't rigged it up yet. It's a little larger than I imagined. It will get mounted to my compressor rather than the cutter. Got alot of small projects pulling me 9 ways from Sunday right now and haven't had much time to play but the little task list is getting shorter every day...note to self...find large wooden round tuit

The DR comes with one of those simple face shields with a handle. I use my auto dark ok with it.

If you use a drag style tip shield you don't need anything except safety glasses.
If using an un-shielded tip, you have to hold off the material then, you'll need a shaded lens. We successfully use shaded safety glasses
You don't want a plasma burn to the eyes trust me. I'm on the experienced list with that one.
