Answer: 
Thank you for the interest in the California Air Tools Ultra Quiet Air Compressors.
We recommend that you check the CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute) air requirement for your nail gun to operate properly.
The CAT1650A (1/2 hp) air volume is most likely too small for a flooring nailer.
You should look at a 2.0 Hp, CAT-4620A) model for flooring, roofing or framing nail guns. 5.30 CFM @ 90 PSI.
Thank you

Answer: 
The connections are standard 1/4" threads, there are many different styles of couplers. While im sure that Home Depot does carry the quick connect fitting that will work, best to buy the coupler/disconnects as a matching set, that way you are sure that they will work.Personally i took off the coupler and connected a recoil hose directly to the regulator. The coupler that came with it looked cheap Read More

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good size easy to operate Use this to demo in environments that need quiet. Can easily carry on conversations when compressor is powering up to 100PSI.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great with Shoebox compressor !!! This compressor is quiet and cycles like a dream. I fill my portable air tank with it and hook it to my Shoebox compressor to fill my 4500 psi tanks for my air rifles.The controls,fittings and gauge are sweet. Buy it now. It is shipped from California. Worth a little wait !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for airbrushing! Super quiet is the best feature. Great PSI and tank is large enough to do considerable spraying before it turns on to refill. PSI is constant, no fluctuation. Would be nice if it had water filter on, but added one easily. Would recommend!
