Question about Air Tools & Compressors

1 Answer

Denver Tools evaluation

My son has asked for some tools to use with his air compressor.
He has found Denver Tools through the Tool King website.
As compared to Chicago Pneumatic and Ingersoll Rand,
Denver Tools is very inexpensive.
Do the low prices indicate that the tools are not worth buying --
or that they are a really good deal from a company not yet
well established?
The particular tool in question is Denver Tools 650
3/8 inch keyless air drill

Thank you.

I just bought a craftsman pneumatic 1/2-in drive impact wrench. And used it with my craftsman 4-gallon 1hp air compressor tried to loosen the bolts on my car wheel wouldn't loosen them help

Pneumatic tools are rated in cfm (cubic feet per minute). Your 1 HP air compressor is rated at probably not more than 3 cfm while the 1/2 " impact driver needs at least 8 cfm, maybe 12 chm of air.
The compressor must provide more chm than tool rating needs.
It is a problem, by the time you look at five horse power air compressors and larger, a lot of electric power is needed. A circuit of 220 volts, 20, 30, or more amps would be required to run those large expensive compressors.
If you can, return the air tool and get a good electric tool instead.
Leave those high air volume air tools to shops that are so equipped to use, or invest if you must.

When connected to our air compressor, the tool does not work. The air compressor is set for 90 psi. Our tool did not come with a manual, hence no FAQs to refer to.

Typically, most air tools require 120 psi to work . Have you added oil into the air port of your tool? a small amount of motor oil will work in a pinch - let it flow into the tool for 5 minutes before you try to use it.If you can, turn up your regulator to 120 and try again. Or, you can take the tool to a local shop and ask if they will let you plug it in to their air to test.

Craftsman air compressor 2 hp 20 gallon, seems to running o.k. builds up to 100lbs shuts off when it hits 80lbs come back on, but when i run a tool , right around 90lbs the tool dies out and runs week.when...

IT depends on the tool. Some tools require higher cfm. (cubic feet per minute) of air. IF your air line is not large enough, then sometimes 90psi is not enough to operate a tool as there is a pressure drop at the tool. Look at the required cfm for each tool. Find a chart for air line size, cfm and pressure. Most impact wrenches should be used on a minimum 3/8" air hose. You could look at your manual and see what the max pressure is on your compressor. You may be able to decrease the differential pressure e.g off and 100 and on at 90, but then the compressor will cycle more frequently, and may exceed the duty rating of the compressor.

Compressor builds up air, but when i go to use tools looses pressure to point that its not usable.

how big is the compressor? if its only say 3 cubic foot a minuet that is at free air pressure not at say 8 bar,,,at 8 bar it would only be 0.375 cubic foot,, check to see how much air in cubic feet per minuet and at what pressure your tools need to work on
if they say 5 cubic feet at 8 bar and the compressor is only 3 cubic feet at 8 bar the tool will only run for a very short time before the compressor air tank has run out of air and the compressor cant keep up with the demand from the tool
the bigger the compressor and the bigger the air tank the better some times,,,for a hammer tool you need 8 cubic foot at 10 bar
thats a big compressor!! or a small one for only a short burst of time,,, in short,,,all ways go for a big un? compressor that is!!
i hope this has helped you out

I can not change tools without letting all the air out of the compressor. Reason is I have a hook on my left hand. If I had a shut off value on the out let I wouldn't have to empty the air each time I...

i think quick connects will work for you, as long as you are talking nail guns or impact guns etc..

you can hold the tools between you legs and use your good hand to work the fitting

That is how i did it when i cut my finger off

good luck

Have two knobs, one to show air pressure, the other is for what ?

You have to "unlock" the adjustment knob by first pushing the outside lock ring...turning the center knob to the right will give you approx 110psi...I doubt you'll have enough, even at max, to run even the smallest tool...without frequent breaks.
Good Luck
