    Really wish I had an air compressor and some air tools. I'm getting too old and sore after a weekend of wrenching on lugs and suspension parts. I'm wondering...what size, power, style, etc makes a good general purpose air compressor for the weekend mechanic/craftsman? When I think of all the uses I know I must have one but I'd like to only make this purchase once. Happy wheelin' yall!

    agreed, get the highest CFM rating you can afford. The more you have, the more you can do. Sandblasting, paint, bedlining etc etc all like lots of cfms.
