I am considering two air compressors, one is the Husky 30 gal. cast iron oil lubed compressor, while the other is the high pressure 15 gal Dewalt compressor, both sold at Home Depot. Both have similar SCFM ratings at 90 psi, the Husky has 5.5, while the Dewalt has 5.4. Both have very good ratings. I can't decide which one is more bang for the buck. The Husky is oil lubed, has a larger motor, and larger tank. The Dewalt isn't oil lubed, and has a smaller tank, but did I mention its a Dewalt? I want to use the compressor to spray paint using a HVLP gun, use brad and nail guns, and possibly in the future a pneumatic orbital sander. From what I can tell, both compressors will be pushing it a little with a spray gun. I haven't used one yet, but want to try my hand at it. These are both at my max price (probably more than I should spend), so to all you IR fans, I just can't afford one. What do you think?
