I have built 5 saunas using this compressor with my finish nailer. It works great for applying tongue and groove cedar and trim. Three amazing things:
- The specifications on the box indicate that this 2 gallon compressor is NOT suitable for finish nailing. Thankfully, when I was considering buying this unit, the department manager at Menards informed me that he owned the same unit and it was totally capable of keeping up with a finish nailer. He was absolutely correct and I’m glad he recommended it (and not sure why the specs on the box don’t?).
- This unit is incredibly light. I used to wrestle commercial air compressors and every time i’d pick one up, I couldn’t believe how heavy they were. They were getting heavier or I was getting weaker.
- Check out the price. Yes, $59.99 at Menards.
Saunatimes endorses this product for use with a pneumatic finish nailer. Click here for a great review of recommended finish nailers.
Hot Tip!: Don’t leave this or any air compressor plugged in overnight. Odds are it will go off in the middle of the night and jolt everyone out of bed within a 100′ radius. (Has happened to me!).
