Air compressor, minimum specs??

Page 2 of 2  


Any small compressor will handl the nail guns and have plenty of pressure. I have a little 6 gallon Porcer Cable pancake that works well for me. Even the small ones will put out 120+ psi
If you are getting into air tools, grinder, etc, you need much more.

Domestic. Not enough air, they become barbecue.

If it's just for running air nailers, than just about any compressor with a tanke will do the trick. But a 2HP, 6 gallon would be fine. PSI you need is 70-120 PSI for most nail guns, big and small.

The specifications don't mean anything because the manufacturers lie; usually overstating the specs by at least 100%.
However, running a nail gun does not require a very large compressor. Just don't get one without a tank.
