I got my Shoebox a couple of weeks ago. It shipped the next day after I ordered via UPS. It was double boxed with a lot of foam peanuts. I got it with no damage to the outside box, and the inside box was also very well packed with plastic and cardboard spacers, including the OEM box that the motor came in with all paperwork and instructions. In anticipation, I had already read the manual (PDF available off the Shoebox web site)and was ready to go. I had ordered a 17 cu. ft. carbon fiber bottle that hadn't arrived yet, so I put 4 hours on it topping off my two SCUBA tanks. They went from around 2700 psi to 3200 psi each in about two hours each. Since I got the 4500 compressor, I stayed in the shop with them to monitor the pressures. I did this over a three day period and allowed the box and motor to cool between sessions as a break-in period. My CF tank came yesterday while I was out of town, so when I got home today I hooked her up and pressurized the hose and found out she would cut off at exactly 4500 psi. It took five minutes short of 4 hours to fill the tank from empty. It was about 1.5 hours from 3K to 4.5K. I stopped it for about five minutes to do the 3 hour lube to the pistons. I have my shop air conditioned to 70F so the humidity is low. I'm extremely happy with this purchase. It is 140 mile round trip to the dive shop, plus the time to do it. I have a Marauder pistol and .25 Marauder and now I feel that I can shoot as much as I want without having to ration air, and that makes the experience much more enjoyable to me.
