    I didnt realize oyu had a california air model @robertcdf. Glad to hear you like it – I was really close to getting one of their models instead of the Rolair JC10. Lots of good options to pick from then it seems.

    If you want quiet, don’t get a Campbell Housfeld. I have one and it is loud, wish I would have went in a different direction, but until it dies, I’m stuck with it.

    Not to go OT, but have you ever put oil in it ? Remove the air intake filter and put 3-4 drops of air tool oil in it. It may or may not help some.

    Great tip,,I need to do that too.

    So you did pick up the Rolair JC10. That thing should really blast some air.

    Go look at the “California air tools” compressors. The one I have us a dual tank aluminum tank, runs at <65 db (you can have a conversation next to it while it’s running), and it only pulls 7.6 amps so you’re not blowing breakers.

    Thank you for the recommendation. They look like some nice compressors. I like quiet too.

    Never thought about it, it’s oil less. I’ll have to look into it and see.

    My little pancake lost some compression and will only get up to about 80lbs now, I had to quit using it as it doesn’t make the running pressure so it runs constantly trying. Shootin some oil in the top end would be a good test to see if it’s the rings, I guess it would suck oil past the reed valves but still not hurt my test

    After looking at the prices on amazon for the ones from California Air Tools, the prices are only about $50-$75 more than the less expensive ones. That get you lighter weight, and quieter. The 1 HP one has a noise level of 56db and only weighs 31 pounds.

    Well the compressor finally came in. Just unboxed it ran it, man it’s unbelievable how quite it is, especially compared to the old pancake.

    Glad to hear you like it, you’ll start trying to get everyone around you to buy one too. My stucco guy still has a pancake that drives me nuts when he uses it.

    These are great looking units. If i was looking for another portable this would be the way to go. I am seeking a larger vertical unit for the shop. How are husky compressors? They have a 33gallon at only 76db

    well you guys should know that RobertCDF doesn’t even use wood. I’m surprised he even has a compressor. Maybe to blow off the dust. JK

    Here is a real compressor. By Emglo.

    I had dewalt similar to marks, for about 7 years, sold it on CL for 150 bucks. So it cost me 150 to use for 7 years. It’s was very loud though.

    I was looking at those. They look a bit too bulky for me.

    Got a ring in for one I wiped a while back.
    Now that the weather is nice and feel like replacing it, I can’t find it.
    Still using the pancake.

    I keep meaning to get the jc10 for the kitchens and baths I do. Plus the whole home trimming. Then just use the pancake outside for decks and if I need light framing inside. Anything small inside I tend to use my paslode framing nailer so I don’t have to set up the compressor and hear it run.
