I'm finally at the stage in my new shop construction where I can now configure the space for amenities like lights, air lines and such. I'm wondering how other folks have dealt with distributing their compressed air. I've seen lots of shops using PVC (or some other plastic), which is appealing both for price and ease of assembly, but I do have some concerns about burst strength. This professional kit looks pretty good, but the price is a little breathtaking.

I'm also interested in installing an air dryer, as I'm envisioning that I'll be trying my hand at some light painting projects. Any thoughts or experiences with these things?

Z, considering that kit above, it would seem you could put something like together for 25% of the cost instead of buying it, it would seem easy enough.

Cars are toilet ..... . Stop. Just stop. Buy bus pass. Sell them. You will be happier. Be the man I cannot be. Be the man.
