Most shops run 1/2" inch air lines even if they employ 4 or 5 people, with respect to CFM, your compressor will determine how much CFM is going through the lines...so before you get concerned about air volume let me ask you, how many CFM's does your compressor put out...how big is your holding tank and what's the horse power rating of the electric motor running your compressor head. Did you realize that most shops run 3/8" inch air hoses? 1/2" inch air hoses are to bulky and cumbersome for normal use (some shops will use a 1/2" hose in the paint booth but that's the only place)...so if your concerned about reducing from 3/4" to 1/2" and your going to use a 3/8" inside diameter hose....do you now understand where I'm going with this?
