The 80 gallon tank would be good on a compressor of 20 CFM or so and between about 16 and 20 CFM it would just be a toss-up between it and a 60 gallon, less than 15 CFM and a 60 gallon would be a better choice.
Oldred, You are a great teacher. I learned allot in the last 24 hours from you. Thank you.
Now I need to re-think if I need the extra for the extra money. China=bad US=good. So need think budget more.
