    Do you use the pump to keep yourself and your good lady supplied with wine etc? ;)

    Its ideal. Being a staunch supporter of road safety, i can, at the press of a button get chilled Chablis direct from the fridge in the boot, all without taking my eyes off the road.

    Almost , unfortunately they don't return to the selected charging mode if power is interrupted.

    Tyre compressor is excellent .

    I bought one a couple of years ago, used it once, but second time I tried it would not work. I took it apart to see if I could fix it, but it looked as if it was built for 50p once you got inside, so just binned it.

    Just bad luck. 5 year warranty. Should have returned it. I have had mine for well over 4 years, 2 cars...oil change twice yearly.

    Yep I was tempted, but realised I don't actually have a regular use for it or a compressor.

    I did not see the plasma cutter, but in my experience they need quite a good air supply, not sure if a liter 24 liter home compress has the delivery rate to run one. But I could be wrong...it has been known :rolleyes:..ask the wife.

    The ad does not mention volume of air required , but looking at the inlet to the regulator (8mm ?) a 24lt home compressor might be man enough after all.
