I got the Porter Cable combo kit a couple years ago, the one with the 6 gallon compressor, brad and finish nailer for $300 at HD. THe kit is even cheaper now and comes with a stapler. I have also bought the Porter Cable framing nailer. I used the framer to build a shed and the 6 gal compressor worked great. I am now using the framer to finish my basement. The 6 gallon compressor is more than enough for the DIY'er. I can't use the compressor for painting because it's only 6 gallons but other than that, it has been awesome!!

I got it from the most famous auction internet company, you know which, but I talked to my wife over the phone, she said the unit is not perfectly new, it show minor sign of usage, but no mark or anything, probably for demo or display unit... but my experience say those unit normally work perfect no problem, only those real old ugly used unit which sometimes give you trouble , like one of the drywall screw gun I bought, so you do take a risk for this price... I could have get it lower than $100 if I had not be too busy that day affecting my bidding straegy...

This is sort of an old thread. Did the OP make his purchase yet?

One - do not get an in-line oilier. This will add oil to the hose which is OK for the nailer but very undesirable if you want to use a paint sprayer in the future.

As for compressors. Makita has a couple that are very quiet, oil lubed and not too expensive.

As for nail guns. I do not know anyone with grizzlies guns. They make some great tools but I'm not sure about the nail guns. Get the porter cable, Senco or Bostich. Hitachi makes a good one too but not that alien looking one.

I typically get my air compressor accessories from Grainger and have never had any issues. They have everything from compressor valves to portable air tanks, so you should find what you're looking for.

I agree that a 2006 post is a "bit" old to be replying to. Just a thought though. Some Grainger stores require a business license to be able to purchase from them. I had no problem in Florida, but where I live in Arkansas, they made me get a letter from an employer to be able to purchase anything.


If you have never made a mistake, you haven't done much.
