What size wire?

Since there are a lot of questions on compressor wiring lately...me too. I am going to install my 7 hp 60 gallon compressor. The tag on the compressor says it is 240 volt, 15 amp, 60 hz, 1 phase. I need to run about 25' of wire from the main box to the compressor. What size wire would I need and breaker.

Also I bought a used electric kitchen oven for power coating. What size wire would I need for that? It will be next to the compressor so the wire distance would be the same. I assume the breaker would be a 50 amp just like my house has.
