I'm in the market for a cheap air compressor. I need it for the occasional spray painting of furniture, inflating and switching of tires.
I've been looking at this air compressor:
The specs of the compressor are as follows:
- 2hp (1500 Watts)
- ~6 gallons in the tank (24 litres)
- ~7.8 CFM (222 litres per minute)
- ~116 PSI (8 bar)
- Oil lubricated
Is this device going to fulfill my needs (based on the specs)? I've read that oil can leak into the air causing problems with spray painting. Is that something which can be prevented?
