I have gotten allot of education on compressors the last few days. Glad I found this forum (thanks oldred) and a few others off of posts in this fourm. These are some of the ones I found especially helpful outside of here.

I also went to HF to get a paint shaker (looks cool might mix paint for me). But, I looked at thier compressors again. That whole Chinese junk thing worries me. They have one that looks good but, not sure. $799. See pictures below. Not sure if this one is the junk one.

I am also still thinking of the Quincy at $1399 http://www.northerntool.com/shop/too...0475_200350475

As for the compressors I am still wobbling at $799 vs $1399 Wondering if I get the $799 one and next year when cash is more flush buying the quincy one maybe even going up to 7.5 Quincy and selling the the HF one for $600 I am sure people would jump all over that.

So my question is what else do I need that I am not thinking about. I think I need a water separator. I am going to just put in compressor, electrify it and want to plug in with a hose. fancy stuff will come later. So I need something to separate the water next to it right? Where should I get that from.? Is that a whole other week of research?
