You will need at least one regulator and a water trap in line before the regulator. These are not costly. A regulator allows you to set the correct air pressure for the tool you will be using (say, 80 PSI) instead of tank pressure (say, 175 PSI).
A portable air compressor is what made this job not only possible, but also enjoyable and satisfying as well. Who knows when I might use it again. I am, however, glad that I have what I need now to do all sorts of jobs I couldn't do before.
A rotary screw compressor uses screws to force the gas into a smaller space. These can be quite compact or larger for industrial uses. The tighter the threads on the screws, the greater the compression. This type of compressor does tend to run a bit smoother and with less vibration than other types.
