    I haven't played with it yet, to see what kind of volume it puts out, but I have one I'll sell ya, to save you a trip to the yard. Got it from the pick and pull for $15.

    It works, but it's really slow. Not much volume there. Would likely want 3-4 in parallel.

    Good for air horns if you have a small tank.

    Ive heard from people who know compressors that they are junk. Not worth the effort, especially when you can buy a good $25 compressor from kragen's, if you are lucky and hurry.
