Well you'll probably have better luck posting this in the 'Garage' section.

I just got a compressor for Christmas from my Dad. He got me a Craftsman 26 gallon red compressor, but that thing was too loud for my taste. So I took it back and got this one:

*It's an oiled 2HP compressor and quiet as can be. I love it and highly reccommend it.

I have the same compressor as the one in the link above, so far its done everything I needed.

Currently I'm also looking for a welder and came across the lincoln 3200 at home depot it seems to be an alright unit. Just trying to do a little more research before I put down cash on it.

I'm pretty sure that's the same one Cody(1slow01z71) has too. I've used it before and it is pretty damn quiet.

whats the relation between psi and cfm? i notice that on certain compressors that when the psi drops it raises the cfm. lets say my comp. puts out 6cfm @ 90psi how much is the cfm @ 30psi?

if your worried about it, just get a regulator for it IMO.

on the end of my paintgun where the airhose would normally hookup, ive got an adjustable regulator, then below that is a water seperator, then the airline source. Its a little big, but i also have a large feed cup as well, so im used to it being a little more bulky.
