Air tank question....

If an air tank is rated at 125 psi max, can it take more?? I mean like 145? 150? I know it's not suggested.....but can a tank handle 25lbs more that it's max??

What about 10lbs over....I found a compressor shut off that turns on the compressor at 110, and turns it off at 135.

I've got a little project going on......so if you know what it is, just keep quiet.

If you belly can handle 16 bears, what do you think will happen with 8 more?

According to Suicide Doors mine is only rated to 150, but I run it to 200 every day. I havent had any problems yet, and I know a few other people that do the same so I guess it cant hurt.

Everything I've found on them the max pressure is double what the normal pressure is. You should be find with 10 over.
