Compressor recommendations
 
Hi everyone just wondering if I could get some input on a compressor upgrade for my garage.I have a 60 gal 3hp Ingersoll rand that only put out 11.3 cfm now that just want cut it when you try to run a DA or Air File.I think if I had a 18 to 20 cfm compressor I would be OK but I'm not sure.Please chime In with what everybody has.Also which brands are better.

Thanks

is that 11.3 scfm @ 90 psi ?

I have a 6.5 hp on a 60gal DeVilbiss 2 cylinder, single stage (125 psi)
its rated at 9.4 scfm @ 90 psi and 11.9 scfm @ 40 psi
if you are using good quality air tools, it seems to keep up OK
cheap tools use a lot more air volume
