How much air do you need? This is more than just a standard tool review; it’s an overview of groups of air compressors, useful to woodworkers of varying levels. Roland Johnson reviews different pumps, capacities, and configurations -- portable compressors, midsized machines with some portability, and large stationary machines and assesses the advantages of each. You’ll also find a glossary of compressor parts and terminology. Side information addresses compressor maintenance.
