Just to add a little more bits to the stream...

I would recommend getting a two-stage compressor if one is available,
although they are usually more-the pressure can be quite a bit higher, and
they run for a *lot* shorter time. (w/ same size tanks)  If the one is listed
at 10.1scfm@90psi, it's probably single stage, same horsepower w/ two-stage
is probaly 17scfm@125psi.

Also, you can do what I did and have two air tanks-one on the compressor, and
one that attaches to the compressor. (I have a valve in the line that
attaches to the compressor)

Good luck!!  Scott M Ryan
