I got a little twin tank compressor from Harbor Freight which seems to 
work ok.  For a nailer, I got a used Hitachi NR83A2 from a pawn shop; 
they had a bunch of them and I got the best looking one. That's the only 
nailer I ever seem to see the guys on framing crews use and they seem 
totally bulletproof.  It's also easy to get parts and nails for them.
