That's sure lucky, Ron. Otherwise, you could have ended up with that screw imbedded in a body part.
The trouble with on-line forums is that you get information on what worked....but often those solutions depended on a lot of luck. This is a great example....that same screw could have become a projectile.
Pressure vessel failures can be pretty catastrophic. It's the very reason that they have to be hydro-tested from time to time in commercial environments. This is not an exercise that is done for the fun of it.
Want a new air compressor tank (small)? Go to www.surpluscenter.com and search on air tank. There are several small ones there with wheels, handles and mounting points for the motor and compressor.
