We've got an air setup although it's not working right now. We developed a leak somewhere and can't seem to locate it. Pump keeps running and the tank never fills up. The tank/compressor are stored in our basement while PVC piping routes the air up into the garage.

Other than all the attachments (sockets), we've got a Thundergun impact gun and a cutting wheel. That's it.

I like electric tools. I have a paslode nailgun though, it is kind of air powered. I think it has a built in compressor or something.

I have a 20 gal/5 HP in the garage that routes to 2 filter-regulators with 3 drops (2 in the garage, one in the basement). Everything is routed with push-to-connect fittings and tubing. One of the drops in the garage is on a self retracting reel which is the only way to go. Air tools I have are impact gun, die grinder, air ratchet, brad nailer, framing nailer, tire chuck w/ gauge, and tons of blow guns.

I have a 13 gal one I got at Wal-Mart a few years ago as a return-to-shelf layaway purchase so it was MUCH cheaper. Came with cheap impact, air chisel, blow gun, and a cut off grinder. Since then I've added an air ratchet and bigger impact (550ftlbs).

The 13gal does most of what I need, but can't run the tools very long. Also has trouble giving enough power to impact to break stubborn lug nuts. I picked up a 20 gal one to supplement it (has a detachable tank with it's own gauge and connector), but it won't run in my barn. Need to upgrade the electric first. So it sits in my basement with 180ft of hose if I need more power. Once I get the electric upgraded I have a double-male adapter to link both compressors together to get 30+ gallons of air, and 2 pumps running. I'm hoping that'll let me run sanders and my other tools a little longer without dropping the $700-$1000 on a 220v 2-stage compressor (plus finding room for it, wiring it, etc).

Air Tools

They have unbeatable prices. You can get a HVLP paint gun for $11.00You can buy every air tool available for less than $200.00. The Home Depot has a husky air compresor for sale that will run anything you need for $275.00

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.
