Small Compressors

Hi All,

I'm looking at buying a small air compressor for the workshop for cleaning saws, pumping tyres up etc.

Does anyone have any suggestions on make, model, size?

Any help/advice is appreciated.

Cheers

Laurence

Re: Small Compressors

Keep an eye out in Lidl/Aldi for one, their prices are very competitive and it's the only place you'll get a free three year warranty. go to their website and sign up for the weekly newsletter, gives you all the special buys

Re: Small Compressors

Don't particularly want a 12v compressor, would be easier to get a mains powered one and can't wait for Lidl/Aldi to have one......I could be waiting for months.

Anyone got any other ideas on where to buy one and what sort of money I should be spending?
