Default Sears Air Tools ok?

Good quality? anyone have any sears air tools? My air-tool budget is small, but it is needed mainly for taking tires off my car, I have a bad back and airtools will make it easier for me.

It'* Craftsman..if you aren't happy..they'll work it out.

2 gallon is a bit too small for that gun though.

I say that because I have a 20 or 30 gallon and a half inch gun takes a lot of air to make torque. You need a little more reserve air

Wow! My old one looked just like that - grease & all. It was pretty tired though, my dad got it back around 1978 or so.

...But we got indoor plumbing this year, so I filled the outhouse:

Wow... I'm really liking that...

Got my Compressor from a friend... Its an old school unit... Double piston, Cast Iron Pump.... 50 Lbs with nothing on the pump... LOL...

Rated for 7-8 CFM at 90-100 PSI.... Thing works great and recovers incredibly fast for its size and age... 17 Gallon... The Pump is said to be good for 50 years... and they have never changed the design

I have a 25 gallon 3hp craftsman, rated at 100psi 12.5cfm.
It works great but have to give it time to recover when in heavy use, ie impact gun
Its a good size for home use, not perfect in every situation but the price was right and it has'nt let me down.
