    I never used to use them that much, but last summer I finally bought a 220v 80 Ingersol Rand compressor and now I have all air tools lol! Having a small compressor just made me not want to use them

    I'd be lost without my air tools. Mostly cheapie stuff, just work on my own trucks. A decent 1/2 impact is a must, as many foot pounds as you can afford. Use my die grinders the most, especially the right angle.
    When you hear hoofbeats, look for horses not zebras.

    All SnapOn. 1/2 and 3/8 impacts,3/8 and 1/4 air rachets, angle and straight die grinders, air chisel.

    Pnuematic wrench, die grinders, cut-off tool, 1/2" Impact gun, pnuematic grease gun, air chisel, I dont think any of them are the same brand.
    Since I'm remodeling the house I recently bought a IR pnuematic nail gun for finishing nails and an IR HVLP paint gun.

    Most everybody with a compressor uses them, I have about 25 or so. 4 or more impact wrenches, air ratchets, pneumatic drills, jitterbugs, scalers, in-line sanders, rotary cut-off tools, polishers, grease guns, and riveters. Not to mention inflator chucks and blow-off tools.

    Simply cannot imagine working on anything automotive without at least a 1/2 inch impact driver. My compressor is too small (3HP) for die grinders and cut-off tools but I use the heck out of impact drivers and nail guns. Get around the cut-off situation with several inexpensive 4 1/2 inch right angle grinders with cut-off wheel, wire brushes and grinding stone. Just removed the bed from my 2000 Silverado to fix a frame issue, a 3/8 impact driver and 18MM wobble socket turned what have could have been a real chore into a 20 minute job.
