    If I was using a pancake/portable compressor all day I’d want one that was quiet. Who makes really quiet ones?

    Rolair. I have the JC10 and it is real quiet. They use compressors that are also used in hospitals per speaking with them on the phone. No loud start up bangs either.

    Thank you for the info. I have heard that before that Rolair’s are quiet. Compressor racket gets to you after a while.

    I know a couple guys who have Rol-Air compressors and love them. I have also heard some pretty good reviews of compressors from California Air Tool.

    I always try to locate the compressor somewhere where the noise wont bother me. When framing new homes, we often will place it in the basement and leave it there for the duration of the job.

    Good looking fan Sparky.
    I would like to see a comparison between the Milwaukee and Makita fans.

    I’ve been thinking of a rolair if I sell my makita

    Which Makita do you have?

    I’m running the mac2400…small tanks but a work horse!

    I had gotten quite the deal on the mac700 a few years ago and I am running that. it is just a little underpowered and overweight for what I want.

    Yeah, those Makita compressors are way heavy! Mine has been very reliable though. I’ve heard great things about Rol-Air, especially the JC-10. If you look closely at their compressors and compare them to Makitas offerings, they look almost identical. Rol-air says they don’t make the Makitas though…

    The Makita compressor I had was probably the quietest I have ever had. it was a workhorse but someone dropped something on it and broke the welded connection between the tanks.

    I was going to mention Califonia air as well, just didn’t think of it until this evening. I think that Robert has one of those. I have a Campbell Hausfeld right now and that thing is loud. I wish it would die so I could justify a new one, but that will take a while.

    I bought this tonight to use on a couple of big projects we have coming up. It will be paid for multiple times with what I had included for rental on the projects. If I don’t have a use for it when the projects are complete, I will probably sell it.

    Well if that rolair is lighter weight. I’d definitely consider it. And since I paid so little for the makita, I bet I can get something close to what I paid for it.

    60DB is great for any compressor. And the size and weight would be really nice when doing trim work.

    I don’t think they would try anything like that.

    It is pretty funny though.

    Their customer service is outstanding as well. Mine had a faulty valve for emptying the tank. Apparently a lot of them did at one point when they first came out. Sent me a new one pronto.

    I spoke highly of them on another forum and mentioned that to the sales guy I was dealing at Rolair in the US. Sent me a Rolair T-shirt, a barbecue spatula and an electrical carry tote all for free. Gotta love free swag without even asking for it.

    An Amazon that was mostly stuff I got for the wife came, but these 2 items were in it. Wiha pliers were discounted to $8, and the Santronics non-contact tester comes highly recommended, and it’s made in the USA.

    Also, the final 2/3’s of my clearance nail order showed up. 30 boxes (60,000 nails) for $15 total, with free shipping. Sometimes you get lucky.
