Re: Anyone know anything about Air Compressors (No Audi Contnet)

I have basically the same compressor you describe, and have regretted not
have gone bigger (more SFCM's).  While it drives a ratchet great and hammers
and staplers, it hardly drives an impact wrench and has problems with rotary
tools such as drills and sanders.  So my advice is if you can swing it go
bigger.  Look at the SFCM requirements for the tools you may need to use and
go a little higher than that on the compressor.
