But terra they I sure all the salespeople run to help you cause your HOT!or at least the pic in your avitar you look it!LOLWilbret has a great point about how loud compressors can be (even so-called quiet ones). I suggest running long air lines to your haunt and have the compressor somewhere else (mine is in the basement, the haunt is in the garage).
I had a great experience at Sears. The salesman volunteered to turn the compressors on for me (I was deciding between an oiless and oil pump). In fact, I'm finding myself going there more and more. Those guys really know their stuff. That is good 'cause I don't squat when it comes to power tools.
I was thinking with the 26 gal capacity and possibly another 11 gal tank connected to 1 spitter prop set to a 2 second firing.
The compressor might only have to fill once.
the research I have done suggests that 78db is pretty quite in terms of a compressor.
