A portable air compressor comes in many shapes and sizes. We are only truly portable if we don't get too big. As long as we can be moved around easily and used where needed then we are considered truly portable. Once we get too big, then we are relegated to shop work and other stationary jobs. I pity these poor fools. It would be boring to just sit in one shop all day. I like getting out and seeing different places and meeting different people. I think it keeps me young.
One time we were working together on a small project that John had lined up for us. I was all powered up and fully charged with air pressure like normal. Everything seemed just fine. I heard the buzz of electric saws and saw the normal saw dust flying around. Then, all of a sudden, and without any warning, my breath was taken away from me in a gush! I thought I was going to die. John had accidentally set his circular saw down on my hose and cut into it. It alarmed me at first, but before long John had me all fixed up and back to work we went. Ah, such is the life of a portable air compressor.
