No doubt there is a place for these cheaper outfits and it would make little sense to spend the money on an industrial compressor for home/weekend use. My point was that if someone is going through one of these things every 2 or 3 years then they would be better off with one of the better ones that could very well last 20 years or more, just depends on what on what it is being used for. If you were planing on running a shop for a living or just wanted to buy a compressor that you would not have to worry about for many years then the better ones are the way to go. There is nothing at all wrong with what you are wanting to do here and if you can find a good pump cheap enough you could very well end up with a compressor that will last a long time for only a couple hundred dollars or so, not bad at all!
