The key thing to notice here is that it uses oil. The oil-less compressors work but are much louder and I don't think that they are made to last like the ones that take oil. Craigslist is a good way to find a smaller one for around $50-$60. The ones that are belt driven are the best but usually cost more.I know this is off topic but just my 2-cents. Good luck.You could get a "starter" compressor for cheap (HF comes to mind). I personally went hunting for a compressor years ago on Craigslist and local pawn shops. Found a $300 compressor for $50 running fine. Just changed the oil, and it's been running since.
