So I was walking the aisles of Costco today and something just jumped onto my flat truck. And by "jumped", I mean picked up and placed there by me.
Bought their "Master Power" by "Cooper Tools" compressor. The thing is supposed to be rated for 5.6 cfm @ 90 and 6.8 @ 40psi.
Essentially, I am picking this up for one job and one job only. I getting it to power This HVLP gun
The compressor itself is warranted for 3 years, so Im not too worried about it taking a dump two years down the line. Im just not in the place in my life where Im looking to buy a high quality compressor right now (Im still in school and rent a house that doesnt have a garage.)
The reason for this guy was that he was cheap ($100), portable, and oiled. The paint project is small and I plan on doing it a body panel at a time. The gun claims it only needs 5cfm at 60psi, so Im hoping this can keep up, but I think it will probably be close. Im hoping that painting a panel at a time will give it time to catch back up.
So, does anyone know anything about Cooper tools or Master Power in general? Or did I just buy a no-name POS?
Additionally, does anyone have any thoughts on the gun?
Once I get around to it, I'll write a review of the unit if folks are interested.
