  1. What is more important? HP or tank size? In fact, could someone categorize and list in order of importance all of the factors? How I've been looking into it so far is: 1) Tank Size 2) Loudness And thats it, but I'm in the same boat. Do I get a compressor and nailer separately, or get a pancake compressor combo kit?
  2. Is a Brad nailer the right guage to hang window trim and do baseboards? Or is that 16 guage? Still learning all of these numbers.
  3. Thanks for all of the replies! No, I do not have a compressor yet. We moved from a condo, so this is our first home with actual space, and a garage etc. Would you all recommend one of these kits, or going a seperate compressor, nailer route? The one thing I've heard about these compressors is that they are not good for much beyond running a nailer, inflating a tire and blowing air to clean up. Then again, it seems like a compressor that would also let me paint with a paint gun, etc, all seem to be around $350 and up. So how about this, if you had a budget of about $350, what would you do?
  4. I have a 12 volt Milwaulkee drill that I love, but nothing 18 volt. Plus the battery nailers are freaking EXPENSIVE. Then again I am asking for advice. Would you suggest battery?
  5. Hey everyone. First post here, and I'd love some thoughts/help. My wife and I just moved into our first house after spending the last month and a half renovating it. We are now at a point where all of the things that need to be done are items that we can do ourselves. We want to paint the entire interior, and each window has a frame around it. My thought is to pull the frames off, sand then paint them, to avoid having to tape everything off. Then I came across the idea of getting a finish nailer and compressor, to make putting the trim back on pretty simple. I am about a week into reading and learning about compressors and nail guns and lack the knowledge to determine the difference between the following kits. Could I get your feedback? Everything from the types of tools offered to your experience with these brands? Thank you all!
