    Small Air Compressor Advice.

    I need a small but powerful air compressor. It won't be used to power any tools but will be used for blasting dust out of nooks and crannies. Adjustable pressure and a long hose would be ideal. The less expensive, the better. :thumb: TIA. Paul.

    Compressor recommendations

    I'm considering adding a compressor to my tool collection, for use with nailers, staplers, sanders, some inflation, etc... It needs to be fairly portable, and ideally easy to maintain. Budget, possibly upto £200, although it would be nice if that included a tool or two. Any suggestions?
