My question is should I run lines or ? I had a graph showing what size for what length run, cfm, psi, etc but I cant find it.

Anyway the reason Im wondering if I should run instead of is that the outlet on my compressor is only , will this restrict me enough to make it pointless to run for the rest of the system? I plan on running a media blast cabinet, DA, sander, paint gun, etc. I have 50 of copper laying around right now but I would have no problem buying if it will make the difference.
Buy the 3/4" - but get iron pipe, not copper. Not only is there a cost difference, but the iron pipe will cool the compressed air and condense out any moisture.
