No air pressure on Red (resolved)

I have the compressor running. I’ve checked the valve for connectivity. But the air pressure on Red is flat. Red says there’s insufficient pressure to run. Have I forgotten a step in the months I’ve been away? Or did Red just decide to not work as a gift to me upon my return???

Never mind. I tried cleaning out the hose one more time and this time a piece of fuzz blew out of the nozzle… now pressure is building fine, and Red is cutting.

It’s also pretty typical if it’s been sitting overnight that the hose needs to be disconnected from the water separator for a minute to let the pressure build in the tank, then plugged in to shut the automatic valve. If it starts up from completely empty, the pressure can escape faster than the compressor can build it, and it won’t hit the pressure needed to close the valve that shunts the air into the air assist line.
