I found a nice air powered air gun at a local hardware store. At first it seemed just perfect. I was about to buy it when I noticed on the little description card that it was not recommended to be used with a compressor smaller than 6 gallons. Dang! The portable air compressor I had was only a small 2 gallon pancake compressor. That just wouldn't cut it. I had to buy a larger unit so that I could get the gun, so that I could finish the house project. See how this goes.
I like my life as a portable air compressor. If you own one of us, please treat it kindly. Keep it oiled, adjusted, well maintained, and take care not to set your saw down on its hose. If you do those simple things your compressor will be your friend for a very long time.
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.
