What size compressor is everyone using?

Post by Grifspop on Wed May 18, 2011 12:36 am

I'm needing a compressor, and I don't want to get one that won't get the job done.

I'm thinking 60 or 80 gallon, 5 hp, or somewhat close to that.

Any thoughts, has anyone bought a small compressor and then had to sell it and get a larger one? I want to avoid that, and get something for general shop use (air tools, paint guns, etc)

This is the one I have and I have used it with a DA sander and it kept up fine. It also has a 100% duty cycle and good CFM.
