It's time for me to get a real compressor.  Based on previous comments 
by people,  here are my starting specifications:
- oil lube cast iron
- 120V (20A ok)
- vertical, portable
- approx 5 SCFM at 90psi
- desire "quiet" operation (understand even a quiet compressor is loud)
- desire under $400 price tag

I've found the 3 compressors below at Sears, Home Depot, and Lowes.  All 
have similar specifications, except for warranty (Husky is 3 years, 
Kobalt 2, and Sears 1 year).

Sears Craftsman Pro
Sears item #00919552000 Mfr. model #19552

Husky Pro Model VT6315 (made by CH)
Internet/Catalog # 167501
Store SKU# 723883

Lowes Kobalt # 215921
Can't find online

Does anyone have any experiences with any of these compressors or a 
suggestion for a better one.  I'd like something I can pick up locally 
in the South Bay/Los Angeles area, internet is ok  Right now I'm leaning 
towards Home Depot.
