Question about Craftsman Air Tools & Compressors
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.
