Choosing an Air Compressor

Pneumatic tools use compressed air to drive the nail or staple. Some compressors can only use one tool at a time, whereas larger ones can run two or three tools. The most versatile compressors have tanks that store up compressed air, producing a ready supply to keep your tools running. When selecting a compressor, don’t choose one that greatly exceeds your DIY tool needs. Light, easily portable compressors can often do the job of their heavier counterparts. But as weight does determine the size of the air tank, you will not be able to run as many tools off a lightweight compressor.
