My familiarity with manufacturing hardwood furniture has taught me that about half the time involved in constructing each chair, table or cabinet is taken up with sanding. When you are trying to make a livelihood in the woodworking industry with hourly employees you must cut inefficiency to a bare minimum. This does not mean becoming a tyrant but, instead, removing any and all impediments that may be slowing construction, sanding and finishing.
I happen to be just a small portable air compressor. I live with a nice man named John who owns a small construction business. He takes me with him wherever he goes. Usually, we visit job sites where John goes up to other men and talks to them about important stuff. I just hang out in the truck waiting patiently. Sometimes, John will come back to the truck and take me out to start working. These are the good days. Other times, we have to drive off and come back another day.
Oil free systems are a bit more technical so sometimes are more expensive. Often they are louder than an oil lubed compressor, but the air delivered through one of these pumps is of a better quality. They are found for home use, and are great because they are low maintenance and start up quick in cold weather.
