I run air tools and small paint guns for motorcycles off a 2hp compressor. I don't think that I can use HPLV paint guns, or air sanders that require 11cfm. But for air impact drivers (the best reason

Why don't we write a compressor FAQ and gang-FAQ newbies with it when they ask about compressors or shop air? It's not like the compressor questions are going to stop any time soon unless the list i

When I built a half-assed paint booth using plastic sheets I set up a fan to exaust air rather than to blow it in. The theory being that it wouldn't stir up as much dust that way. Use a respirator, y

You're going to get a lot of replies like this, but basically calipers aren't accurate enough to measure those things. For bores, I use a bore gauge I got from Enco. You need a bore gauge to get accu
