Questions & Answers

Will this work with a floor nailer?

I'd like to use this with a blind nailer
Asked by: 911mike
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

what size quick connect do i need for this compressor? Do you keep the connections in stock?

Asked by: SuzieQ
The California Air Tools Air Compressors have a 1/4" Female Universal or Industrial Quick Connect Hose Connector. You will need a 1/4" Male Universal or Industrial Quick Connect Hose Connector to connect to your hose to connect to the air compressor Thank you

1.6 Gal. 1/2 HP Ultra-Quiet and Oil-Free Aluminum Tank Air Compressor is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 14.
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!

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 Fantastic little air compressor! This air compressor works exactly as advertised. It is so quiet that I can use it in my basement shop while the family is asleep. It also provides plenty of air for my small shop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great compressor Best air compressor to use inside, very quiet running and recovers fast, for what I use it for
Date published: 2014-02-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for your airbrushing needs. After doing many reviews on different air compressors, i decided on this model from California Air. Its compact shape allows easy placement in your studio and is very stable.Its a little louder than my old small compressor,which is smaller in size and performance.After considering what i will mainly be spraying and looking at the specs on different models, i decided this one would fulfill my needs quite well.The 1.6 gal. tank hold plenty enough air for me to spray around 30 psi for a fair amount of time before the compressor kicks in to refill the tank.Which doesn't take very long at all, this keeps the compressor from heating up and laboring.The low amp draw and low db lvls allows me to run this next to my drawing table without disturbing anyone.The new drain valve is a breeze to use, so keeping the tank free from moisture isnt a chore anymore.While this is the smallest model , it more than keeps up with what i need it for. I foresee a very long and prosperous future ahead woth this compressor. Home Depot shipped my order quickly and it was double boxed so it arrived in great shape.I would definitely recommend this compressor to anyone looking for a good airbrushing compressor that will last them a long time and not be very loud when running also.While its not a true silent compressor,. it also only cost about a 1/3 of a silent one also.Consider this compressor an investment in your airbrushing career, you wont be disappointed.
