air over electric

I would recomend air tools.You can run air tools all day long and they won't overheat. I,ve worked in auto body for many years and the only electric tools I've ever seen used are buffers, shop vacs, heat guns, and soldering irons.

I do a lot of boat maintenance, and an air tool gives you more peace of mind when you work outside, standing in a puddle....

I can say as of today The differance between a electric D/A and a Air powered D/A is night and day, In favor of Air power. You just don't get the speed out of a Electric D/A as you do air. had a chance today after buying an air powered one to compaire back to back, Air wins for automotive work.

I have to say that this 2006 thread has whiskers on it but it's still a relevant subject
