Why not? There’s a huge array of low cost DIY home workshop compressors available throughout North America these days. Probably the rest of the world too, though I haven’t travelled off continent lately.
It seems for under $200 you can get a compressor and a combi-kit containing all manner of accessories and tools for the compressor.
Do you need a compressor? Yup! Absolutely? Well maybe not an absolute necessity. But once you’ve got one, you’ll find all sorts of uses for compressed air, and they really are a handy device.
One thing you must understand. No home workshop DIY type air compressor running on 120 VAC power can deliver enough compressed air fast enough for you to run air tools for more than a short time before your unit runs out of air.
When you’re working at home, there’s no assembly-line-pressure. You just put down the tool and do something else for the minute or so that it will take your compressor to come back up to cut-out pressure and to stop again.
Either found under my tree, or in an envelope (in the form of a purpose-specific gift certificate) it’s a Christmas gift that keeps on giving, for years after the lucky recipient received it.
