Sorry, Nick, I too missed welcoming you. Consider it done.
There are a lot of considerations at play here. Available space, types of projects, future needs all come into play.
Small compressors...small projects.
Chuck has good points. Portability and footprints are important. If your just using it for small volume tools, like a trim nailer, then a pancake may do the trick. It won't work for spray painting. Stand alone sprayers can cost around $300 and are really great for shop/small project use. However, that is in addition to the cost of a compressor. The plus is stand-alone and portable.
What do you really envision doing? Think long term not short. Again, you will find more and more uses for a compressor. Plan ahead and buy accordingly.
Hi, sorry I missed you. I have gone to find myself, but if I return before I get back, please ask me to wait.
