one more question more question... got a neighbor and we were talking about this stuff. He has a 10yr old "charge air" made by devbliss (sp?) it is a single stage, 60 gallon, 15Amp, 6.5HP compressor. puts out 10.2SCFM @90psi and he siad he ran his DA sander just fine on his car projects without issue. The one thing he said it keeps up with, but barely is his high dollar HVLP gun. So...the amps on the $400-500 compressors are the same, 14-15 amps, and the SCFM is about the same, and they are single stage, but the HP of what I've been looking at is half of what his is. I can't find any that are in his HP realm that aren;t 2 stage and almost 1000 bucks?
