What I am in need of is how to figure what kinda comp. I need.I relize they are never big enough But when the tools are rated in CFM and the comp. in SCFM how to tell what is needed?I want to run air shears,air hammer,impact,air body saw and the smaller normal stuff.I will probably be adding a larger one to the air supply later for painting.Is this all posible and keep it 110v?I have a large 220v but not sure how to hook it up?I only have 110v in my shop.

It would probably be cheaper and easier to wire up the 220 you already have than getting another 110.

the 220 a/c will be your best bet it requires less power to run and is easyer on your light bill I have a small 110 that I take to the track for adjusting air pressure outher wise the equptment that I take to the track is all eletric as for I have a generator

If you can get your hands on a Sears tool catalog, they used to have a section that told you the info your looking for.
