Air Tool Requirements for Compressors
Air compressors come in different sizes, and variations. There are different horsepower motors, different size tanks, different piston configurations, but perhaps more importantly, all of them are rated in cubic feet per minute, or CFM of compressed air.
Typically a compressor is rated at a certain number of CFM at a specified pressure. The portable 30 gallon Eastwood Compressor that is our best seller (#31436) is rated at 5.7 CFM at 90 PSI (pounds per square inch), while its 80 gallon bigger brother (#31440) is rated at 22.1 CFM at 100 PSI. Meanwhile our Straight Line Sander (#13747) is rated at 5 CFM at 90 PSI, while our 50-lb. Pressure Abrasive Blaster (#51117) needs 10 CFM at 90 PSI, and the popular Devilbiss Finishline HVLP spray gun (#12826) needs 13 CFM at 23 PSI. So that gives you some frame of reference.
All Air Tools require a certain amount of CFM to operate properly. Below is a reference chart for the Eastwood Air Compressors and what Eastwood Pneumatic Tools are compatible with them. This chart can also be used as a reference for other Air Compressors and Air Tools, but you would always need to check the manufacturer for their specifications.

When you're working with hot metal, an ordinary workshop table is apt to crash and burn under the pressure - sometimes literally. Eastwood welding tables and work stands are designed to handle the heavy loads and heat that are common with welding or plasma cutting projects. Made of heavy-gauge steel, ssthese welding benches have elevated work surfaces that you can set doors, fenders or hoods directly on while working. You'll be more comfortable and more effective than if you're slouched over on a concrete floor.
We carry several styles of welding tables for DIYers who need a good place to work. Eastwood has folding welding stands that store easily when not in use, adjustable welding tables that can be set at different angles and slatted plasma cutting tables that make it easy to clamp projects in place. Turn your fender stand into a welding workstation with a work stand welding top or get a fixturing set-up table for precision fabrication. In addition to the welding stands and accessories developed by our R&D guys, Eastwood also carries a number of CertiFlat modular fabrication table kits for projects of any size. Customer satisfaction is 100 percent guaranteed on all of our welding equipment.
