[Amazon.ca] CRAFTSMAN Air Compressor, 6 Gallon, Pancake, Oil-Free with Accessory Kit $188.58

Well rated pancake oil-free air compressor on sale at Amazon.

Close to the lowest it's been on CCC.

Compare to $249 at Lowes / Rona.

I've been watching for a while and ended up buying the Dewalt that went on sale on Amazon a few weeks ago which was slightly cheaper, but didn't include the accessory kit which would've been a great bonus as I have to buy that now.

Awesome compressor for running brad nailers and framing guns. I have also used them for roofing and work quite well. They have two hose hook ups on them as well so can run a few nailers at a time.

I had no idea Craftsman still existed as a brand with the decline of Sears. Apparently now owned by Stanley Black and Decker. I could use a smaller compressor for som Crown Moulding and trim work I'm doing, will look into this one.

They work fine for brads and nails.. I have a larger one in the garage, and then a small 2 gallon one thats easy to move around. Its mostly for inflating things, but I find it a nice size for my air nailer.

I didnt look how much this one weighs, but at a certain size they become too heavy to carry around easily, and not large enough to be useful for air tools.

Looks like a rebranded porter cable pancake, right down to the accessories. Those were down to $100 or $130 a few years ago.

Great little units, loud, but solid. Id recommend hearing protection if you're going to be using it indoors or working near it.

Actually, I think rolling the paint on is the real easy part.
The hard part is all the prep work to get ready - washing the walls down, fixing holes, sanding (if needed), masking, removing outlet/ switch covers, cutting in the edges, etc.
I think the rolling part was only less than 1 hour for a room with 2 coats.
The other parts were like 3 hours. Cutting in the edges was the longest/ hardest part - was well over an hour

Spray painting only makes sense for rough/ complex surfaces that are otherwise hard to paint like fancy interior doors, wood louvres, California shutters, brick walls. Also spray painting is good if you want flat glossy surfaces -furniture/ desktops, kitchen cabinets

Unless you own a stadium, stick with the roller. Also, spraying walls, unless u r good, has adhesion problems

This is honestly an amazing compressor to run indoors for a brad nailer but dont expect much for anything else. Runs as quiet as your bar fridge when recovering and punches through shiplap/drywall/stud like a champ with the the right gun. Don't want to thread crap but if your looking for a small unit indoors this is it on sale (129.00) often.
