One of the factors used to designate compressor power is motor horsepower. However, this isn't the best indicator. You really need to know the amount of air the compressor can deliver at a specific pressure. The rate at which a compressor can deliver a volume of air is noted in cubic feet per minute (cfm). Because atmospheric pressure plays a role in how fast air moves into the cylinder, cfm will vary with atmospheric pressure. It also varies with the temperature and humidity of the air. To set an even playing field, makers calculate standard cubic feet per minute (scfm) as cfm at sea level with 68 degrees F air at 36% relative humidity. Scfm ratings are given at a specific pressure–3.0 scfm at 90 psi, for example. If you reduce pressure, scfm goes up, and vice versa. You also may run across a rating called displacement cfm. This figure is the product of cylinder displacement and motor rpm. In comparison with scfm, it provides an index of compressor pump efficiency. The cfm and psi ratings are important because they indicate the tools that a particular compressor can drive. When choosing a compressor, make sure it can supply the amount of air and the pressure that your tools need.

Nail Gun support


Yes, because there is less risk of splitting the wood grain when using a nail gun than when using a hammer, nail guns are especially useful in delicate projects such as the application of indoor trimming. A nail gun sets the nail in one motion, reducing the chance of slips and bumps that can ruin delicate woods. Most models also include a rubber safety nose to protect the wood from friction.

How to Install Air Compressor and Nail Gun


Set up the pressure on the air compressor. First plug the air compressor in, then check the pressure. It should be between 90 and 110 pounds per square inch (PSI) for home use. If it is not in this range, turn the knob to the left to decrease the pressure and to the right to increase the pressure. Use the appropriate nail gun for the job. For example, to nail shoe molding to base boards, a standard finishing nail gun would be perfect. It holds any size nail between 5/8 inch and 2 inches. This nail gun could be used for many projects with great results. Check the gauge the nail gun takes before purchasing the nails for the gun. If you get the wrong gauge they will not fit in the gun. You can check this by looking at the information printed on the side of the nail gun next to the model number. You can also open the nail chamber for this information. Attach the nail gun to the air compressor. You can do this before or after you load the nails into the gun. Use the air compressor hose to attach to the bottom of the nail gun. It screws on much like the end of a hose. If you do not have the right size air hose, you can find one at your local hardware store.
