Pay close attention to brand when you shop. There are 2 CP's out there. Central Pneumatic from Harbor Freight and Chicago Pneumatic. The Chicago ones are old line American and are some of the best available. Most of those tools are legendary for long, dependable service. The Harbor Freight stuff is all fair copies of good brands but is built sloppy with inferior materials. They will do the job in most cases but are throw-away. When it breaks, you just get another one.
If I were starting out from scratch, I might buy one of those kits just so I would have everything at once but I would assume I would be replacing it as I went along.
