I'd like some feed back on an air compressor.
What I want to do with it is to inflate tires on my pick up truck & car,
do some air brushing on r/c models and spray paint wood deck rails. I'm
thinking maybe a 120volt would do it the job.
Zizzle that Fire - it's Zizzle Time !!!!!!!
Airbrush will run with any of them, truck tires take a little bit better and
powering a paint gun has the highest demand of all. The first 2 you can do
with a 3 gallon tank and decent horsepower, 120v for sure. Probably less
than a $100.
You need to look at the spray gun you want to use and see what the scfm
requirements are then you have to buy a compressor and tank that can deliver
that. I am fairly sure a 120v option will exist but it is going to cost

Your needs range from a 1 to a 7 on a 10 scale. The air brushing requires
very little. Car and truck tires need up to 70psi, but just for a small
volume. Deck spraying may require a lot of air for a long time.
Get a 4" roller and it won't take any air and yo won't have overspray.
For your other uses, a pancake compressor will work. The oiless ones are
noisy, but they are inexpensive and fill your needs. Look for some of the
package deals on the Porter Cable with brad nailers included.
Watch Sears prices for that same compressor (Evolv) if you can wait.
I got it, hose, brad gun, tire and air gun attachments for $59.99 last
summer. Put all to good use.
But they bumped the price, and it's $79.99 now..
I don't find it "good" for tires, just better than going to the gas
station and popping in quarters.
Has to recharge twice to get a 15" car tire from 15 psi to 35.
To avoid wait time for tires don't wait until it shuts down at 100
psi. It gets to 90 pretty fast then takes forever to reach 100.
Real handy for a brad gun and blowing out dust though.
