Years later, I built a smaller woodworking shop in my home which only required one air sander running at a time. For that shop, I purchased an air compressor half the size and isolated it in a soundproof room in one section of the shop. I ran galvanized pipe under the shop floor to three regulators at three different connection locations. The machine I purchased for that shop as a 5 HP Ingersoll Rand model with an 80 gallon tank. At the 80 PSI required by my Dynabrade sander, the compressor would produce enough air from morning to night. I must say that that compressor was very well built. All I had to do was keep an eye on the oil level in the sight glass. At night, I would turn off the master air valve on the side of the air compressor, leaving the electricity on, to silence the compressor until the next work day.
I hope this information has been useful to you. Buying an air compressor for your woodworking shop can be a fairly expensive investment when you consider piping, regulators, hoses, water traps, wiring and electricians. You will want to buy a compressor that is capable of the tasks you will be using it for but no more than that. Purchasing the wrong air compressor can be a very expensive mistake. My motivation in writing this has been to give you the knowledge you will need to select the right one.
With nearly 40 online reviews from actual customers, the VIAIR 90P Portable Compressor has an above average customer score of 4.5 out of 5 stars. No, it’s not a heavy duty compressor to use in the garage or on carpentry projects, but the VIAIR 90P Portable Compressor is a great tool to have on hand to inflate tires or possibly pool floats and sports balls. It does the job quickly, and is a nice tool to have in the trunk of your car for those little emergencies that pop up when you need quick air in your tires.
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.
