just curious what type of compressors everyone has (oil lubed, oil less, single stage, two stage, etc.) and what air tools you use with it for your various jobs.

i'll start i have a single stage 140 psi CH oil lubed compressor and i love the thing it easily runs my impact guns, paint sprayers, cut off tool, air drill, and sand blaster, and nail guns. i leave it plugged in and on all the time so its ready at a moments notice i just drain the water from the tank periodically. it is so quiet that i can run it in the middle of the night and not wake the neighbors.

I have an old (late 80's I think without looking) Craftsman 3 Hp oil less direct drive. I can run it in the night too wake the neighbors. :D Surprised really it has lasted as long as it has. I run it weekly to blow off the mowers during cutting season. I have an impact wrench, die grinder, ratchet wrench, paint sprayer, very light duty sand blaster, and tire inflater for it. Most valuble tool though is still my extended reach blow gun to keep the underside of my Deere dust free. ;)

not real sure if you are supposed to spray anything in the intake on an oilless but i do know that they pretty much use a giant rubber diaphragm like an aquarium air pump on stereriods

Hi gents!

One of my favorite topics :).

I have a 2 stage, 7.5HP 80 gallon I/R in unison with a 5 HP,60 gallon Porter Cable (140 gallons of combined air and both are 240V). Just enough to inflate tires :D.

Actually, it's plumbed through my small shop where I do painting and fabricating for my hobby projects.
