Thanks for reading and following along! If you have any questions please ask!!!!
I have one. The detail involved in yours is more than mine and it shows. lol. I have a total of 6 ports. 5 1/2" female boss O-ring fittings and one 1/4" male port for the drain. It was proof tested to over 300psi and fits perfectly where it needs to be. I will be running JIC for all of my fittings where applicable.

Good job on the write up. I wish I would have read it prior to doing mine cause I learned a couple neat tricks.

I have a custom built air tank that I tig'd also,but I used 6" sch10 316ss pipe and 5-1/2" 316 ss half couplings for ports. I made 2 of them. 18" long, and about 2.4 gallons of air, iirc.But I didn't use end caps, just cut circles out of 1/4" ss plate and welded them on, tested at 200 psi and no leaks...
