    compressor advise

    I have now decided I need a new compressor, I have 2 already, one being a good size v twin, which seems to pump as much oil as air, its truly well worn out, the other being a small silent compressor that now needs a new motor.. I don't intend doing paint, apart from blowing in,..... so...... I need 10cfm plus, mainly for tools, I don't want a pile of unreliable junk, something that will outlast me

    I can get new rings, but I know the tank has a good amount of oil in it, I know from experience that you can't entirely clean the tank out, and, at the most inappropriate moment, you get oil contamination

    not a bad idea, other than spraying most air tools like a bit of oil.

    If you are intent on buying a new compressor I would be looking at a vane or screw type as they are more efficient, quieter and cleaner running than the typical piston type. my motto when buying equipment like this is bigger is better if you need x power then buy one with 1.5 oor 2x power.
    If you decide to change the air pump then spend some money on a good water trap/filter. at the end of the day you pays your money and takes your choice>
    Cheers Ian
