Wow! A few days away from the computer, and a nice little conversation ensued. I don't have a strong opinion about reciprocating versus rotary. I would have to agree with SteveHull about the inertia point, and add that somewhat like scrolls they are in a compression stroke while in a suction stroke. I can see how they would be cheaper to mass produce. I take the side of whichever one is more reliable- regardless of efficiency. I say use a better built compressor and insulate the cabinet more.

I added some captions to the pictures to better explain what's going on there.

Jeff5May, I did use a large bore of tubing on the condenser. I explained why in the updated caption. It was supposed to be 3/16". I have my reasons for wanting to go smaller. What are your thoughts on it? It's about a 1/8 HP compressor.
