How to cycle compressor manually?

I have the “usual” 60gal compressor. It cycles when the tank pressure gets to 135PSI and cuts off again at around 165. Sometimes I am about to start a cut, the compressor is at 140PSI and I know it will cycle while it’s cutting. I never had an issue with that but I’d like to be able to cycle the compressor manually so that it starts a cut when completely full, so I don’t have all the noise. I tried to look up over the internet but I have not found a way to trigger the compressor manually… anybody knows a trick?

Hook an air gun to the hose and pull the trigger until the compressor comes on.

Pull cover off pressure switch press connectors together with non conductive material like plastic rod. Let lose when gauge reaches desired pressure. If prv opens u may need to press it closed.

Why not build a box to put on your intake side to act as a sliencer? you have a plasma table right, perfect project!
Look online for ideas on how to build one. They really make a big difference.

You’re never going to get away from the noise when trying to use a plasma table invest in some ear protection
