I am looking for an air compressor for hobby woodshop use. Standard
assortment of nail guns, blowguns, small sprayer, etc. I am fortunate
to have air piped into my loft shop and the compressor is located
separately in the garage. However I am still looking for a somewhat
quiter compressor. I'm willing to pay for oil lube and cast iron to
help keep the noise down.
Only Porter Cable lists a noise rating for their compressors (looking
at the CPLD2540S). After searching the google, the rec, the web,
individual manufacturer's websites, etc. I haven't been able to find
any sound levels for other brands. Has anyone seen sound levels for
the DeWalt 55155 or can you suggest a reasonably quiet compressor with
4 SCFM output at 90 psi or above in the $250-350 price range?
