also the tank to do try and let the air cool so you can draw the moisture out of the air, You wouldn't want to run a paint gun or a D/A right off the pump the air is pretty hot, I know on the secondary side of my old pump its about 200 degrees, but even with continuous use the air is almost room temp coming out of the regulator. and I have a 60 gallon horizontal tank, that draws right out of the top of the tank. so It makes a difference in cooling, If I had a 12 gallon tank with my pump It wouldn't bee nearly as cool and would have a ton of moisture it but Yes, always buy on CFM totally ignore the HP rating in bit Numbers on the label... also always go with the @90PSI if it has two cause that is what 90 % of all air tools run at. 140PSI really has no use on you as a homeowner.
