I think I did a couple of times, buy based on CFM, duty cycle and quality vs what the budget allows.
I was not bashing, I was simply trying to explain why the bigger tank does not help but it is not something that can be explained in one sentence. Obviously you are annoyed by my suggestion to not worry about air storage (within reason of course) but the guy is about to spend money on a piece of equipment and probably can not afford to make a mistake. I was in the business for years and dealt with the "bigger tank is better" myth when dealing with customers who needed an adequate air supply for their service trucks. If I did it wrong and they were not satisfied they came back on me so I learned long ago what works and what don't.
