I agree 100% (for once) with Scott. Definitely not recommended to use toilet paper rolls in the Motorguard for either paint or plasma.....by nature it is designed to break down when wet. A good place for filters and drying are automotive paint supply vendors. Pressure and flow rates are similar to plasma needs. Jim Colt Hypertherm

Motor-guard are better for stopping oil then water.. A true desiccant filter from Van-air or similar is a much better system anyway.. The little Miller filter(Victor used them for years too) is a pretty good little portable setup, and will stop oils, which is way worse for plasma cutters then water..

Wait for a deal on E-bay for one of these.. Generally what Plasma cutter makers use for a option on some of their models.. I bought service kits really cheap, and the driers new for like $25.00..
