Thinking about getting a homeowner grade air compressor and need some advice. Not looking to blow (no pun intended) alot of money on it, but I'd rather spend a few extra bucks and get the right product than spend less and not have it be useful. please note this will not be used for commercial purposes, it won't be used daily and proabbly not even weekly. It'll be used when I need it for a project or small job and then put away in the corner of my basement till I ned it again. I want a basic compressor for regular around the house things like inflating tires (ranging from my daughter's bike to my Sliverado), kids inflatable toys (baksetball, a swimming pool) up to DIY and weekend warrior work...blowing out my saw or an air filter, running a nailgun to do framing for room walls or a shed project...an ideal would be to also have something that can run automotive tools like an air ratchet or impact driver, air chisel, and a sanding/grinding wheel...but those requirements may be putting me out of my budget...I don't need to run a paint gun, which I'm guess is proabbly the highest air volume tool since you probably need alot of air and a consistent pressure. I know there is a big difference in the air volume required for a nailgun and an air ratchet or a grinder...the question is wether a simple compressor will run one in a meaningful way or if it just wouldn't provide enough pressure to make the impact gun a useful tool. The oil free units I've heard are nice because they're low maintenance, but also that they're disposable and once you have trouble you might as well go shopping for a new compressor. Oiled compressors I've heard tend to last much longer, provided you actually do oil them of course, which I don't think is a big deal. Is condensation an issue in these things or do they all pretty mcuh dehumidify the air they use? Don't want to rot it from the inside out from low usage, do I jsut drain the tank when it snot in use/ It will not be left plugged in except when its in use. What do the specs mean to me? I gather that the higher the pressure the more versatility i get out of it in that I can use more powerful tools at 125psi than at 40 psi and that the tank size equates to longer runtimes between power cycles on the motor, which means less noise while I'm working since I think these thigns tend to be pretty loud. I see a bunch of low to medium duty compressors on Sears' website that fit my budget...wondering if they'll do the trick or if they're too small. Links below. Other than it doesn't have wheels for portability (though it does have a handle so its proabbly not too excessive to move it around), this one would be great...comes with a basic tool set and the accessory list shows tools like air ratchts and impact guns...but is it strong enough to really make those tools worthwhile? The price is very right for my budget. If this one will do what I'm looking for then I'll go grab it today. http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_12605_00915310000P?vName=Tools&cName=Air+Compressors+&+Air+Tools&sName=Air+Compressors Nice one. Big wheels, double the size tank, looks like the same motor though, so I'm guess its really not significantly more capable of running tools than the little one, it just works the motor less. This is on the outside of my budget right now. http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_12605_00916639000P?vName=Tools&cName=Air+Compressors+&+Air+Tools&sName=Air+Compressors Thanks!
