    Buy a minimum of a 5hp 60 gallon IR, or don't bother.

    I remember seeing on one episode of either Trucks! or Horsepower on Spike during the PowerBlock where they installed an entire system in the shop. Used like, PVC piping and what not. Very slick! I am definitely asking for air tools and supporting accessories for Christmas though

    Well you gotta start somewhere. I driveway mechanic'd for years with a 20 gallon 3 hp 110V or a 5 hp gas powered contractor torpedo setup and made due. No it wasn't the best...but it worked, allowed the job to get done, and I couldn't afford the $1200 IR unit nor did I have a place to put the 60 gallon immobile behemoth.

    Yes...a fully stocked shop is awesome. We built our shop 3 years ago and its great. I went and bought an 80 gallon 7HP Kobalt compressor and absolutely love the thing. Shop air is plumbed throughout and I already had all the air tools. But I just bought a new house about 20 min away from the family ranch and shop so I may have to install a mini shop in the 3rd car bay, and stock it with some tools. I had them install a dedicated 220v 50amp circuit so I have the ability to run a big compressor or welder for any hot rod projects that may live there instead of in the big shop. I have no need for the big 80 gallon beasty there since I'll be traveling to the other shop for any major work, but a nice 40 gallon unit would be cool. Of course I already have the 20 gallon unit I mentioned and a contractor compressor I may just throw in there but idk.
