Thomas Air Compressors?
I am wondering what do you guys think about the Thomas T-635 air compressor? I see you can use it for finish, stud work and light sheathing? I hear that they is built in the USA is that true?

CJ, I personally suggest a compressor of about 1 1/2 HP, I don't think the 3/4 hp will do you a lot of good. I did read a review on it and it will not support a framing gun but for a 5 nail bump. An air nozzle will empty it is just a few seconds. I surely don't see it good for a spray gun, or a texture hopper. It is just way too light for most uses IMHO.

I would go with Senco, Makita or one of the more popular brands.
