Re: air compressors

Tank size is less important than the CFM of the compressor. A POS with a 20 gallon tank is not that hard to empty. I've never had a problem running three coil nailers with my Rol-Airs.

I hate oil-less compressors. Louder than gas and they don't last as long. This will outlast a half dozen or more cheapos. It's worth three times as much.
