|I'm having problems running my 71 Piece Air tool set with my air compressor?
I purchased the Alltrade 481030 71 Piece Air Tool Set and have had problems running the tools with my air compressor. I'm sure my compressor is too small but I was wondering if you can tell me the specifications needed to run these tools. Basically looking for SCFM, horsepower needed, etc....
These tools will require more CFM than small compressors can produce. First, a compressor needs to run on a dedicated circuit and second, you'll need a compressor that produces at least 5CFM on a 2.5 or 3HP unit with a tank of about 25 to 30 gallon capacity.
Thanks for asking,
