We will need to know the CFM requirement of your nail gun so that we can match the air compressor to the nail gun.

Answer: 
Go with a 6.3 gallon or larger tank with a compressor capacity of at least 6 cfm. Anything less will be running too often. Frequent running creates heat without enough cooling time.

Answer: 
Thank you for the interest in the California Air Tools Ultra Quiet & Oil-Free Air Compressors.
We recommend 1.0 Hp for each hand piece.
Larger tanks are good storage areas for air and give you more time before the motor starts.
We also recommend having an air dryer. Air Dryers remove moisture from the air. This keeps moisture out of the air tank and air line. Dry air prevents rust.

Answer: 
Thank you for the interest in the California Air Tools Ultra Quiet & Oil-Free Air Compressors.
We suggest the CAT-1610A (1.0 hp) 1.6 Gal. Air Compressor.
The motor used on this model is the same used in coin operated air machines at gas stations.
This model is good for the applications you are doing.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 23 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love it!!! At first it came damage, the return was smooth, then it came the new one, it is super quiet, it does his job really good, i live in a apartment were everybody is close, and nobody notice what I'm doing. Is a blessing do what you are doing without bordering no one! August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by california air compressor hey, so far my new compressor looks great. quiet just as they said, easy to set up and get going. it also has the power i need for my projects, pin nailing and airbrushing for my art projects. thanks. June 21, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Sweet and Sour compressor The California Air Tools 1675A compressor is wonderfully quiet, lightweight and transportable. Unfortunately, it gave me less than 2 hours of very light duty service before the motor shorted out. Don't expect a great fix on the C.A.T. warranty, mine came back with more problems. May 17, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Some good, some not so good My old PC air compressor took up too much space and was louder than a threshing machine. I went looking for a quieter, smaller compressor. This California Air seemed to fit my needs. The good. It is very quiet and takes up a smaller footprint. The not so good. Somewhat limited capacity, unloading tube seems kinda weak and looks like it could easily bend, break, or collapse.. It is near perfect for trim work, somewhat weak on having enough lungs to clean my garage floor, and unlikely has the gumption for a big framing nailer. That said, it fits my needs at this time. If I had it to do over again, I would opt for the one horsepower model. I was concerned that it would be too noisy, but after working with this 3/4 horse compressor....I would go with more horsepower as the larger engine is only a couple of decibels louder. September 17, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ultra Quiet is right! My 2 buddies stopped by to help me do a small framing job, when I plugged in the compressor, they both stopped talking, stared at it for a moment and then buddy 1 said "that's it??" while buddy 2 proceeded to take the ear plugs out of his ears, wrote down the compressor info and went to my computer to order one. Needless to say, it's really quiet (at least compared to every other compressor I've ever owned). Fills quickly, recovers pretty well for such a small tank even when driving 3" nails. Definitely recommend for someone who doesn't need a high capacity tank and is concerned with noise. September 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Silence is golden!!! This is a great home air compressor. My wife uses it to blow off items that get dusty. I use it in the garage for tools and inflating tires, etc. It is so quiet my neighbors never know it Is in use. My old unit could be heard several houses away. Love the quietness!!! July 14, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Does what it claims. Quiet and efficient This replaced a big, 40 year old, tired compressor on wheels which was heavy and difficult to move around. This does the job I need and should be adequate for any homeowner. It has a small tank but recovers quickly and it is very quiet for an air compressor. I found the regulator a bit on the cheap side but did not need it so I took it off. Other than that, it seems to be a quality tool and it's really doing the job I need it to do. It's easy to take around to air-up tires and has enough tank capacity to get that job done without having to be plugged in. July 8, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Really quiet I just got the compressor and the box was torn not from shipping as they put the original compressor box into another box for shipping , the compressor was used before or may be out for inspection but the foam was just a small pieces which is broken and the compressor have signs of use and wear , it still work fine but I'm not sure why they send it in this condition may be its refurbished I dunno , but it's really quiet and fell the tank in no time ... Really disappointed with how it looks , it's used not brand new November 8, 2013
