100' 1/2" pipe will flow 54 SCFM at 100 PSI with a 10% DP.
Most air tools will run a smaller single stage compressor out of air in short order irregardless of the size of the line.

I would also recommend at least a 1" galvanized line, but if you can afford it 2" would be even better...100' ft is a long way and the less restriction the better.
