I have a harborfreight pancake compressor for use at my apartment (the 3 gal compressor). it works pretty well.

have you considered a used compressor? you could probably find a pretty good deal on craigslist, I see a lot when I browse.

I have that same exact one sitting there in the corner. It's got good capacity but it does lack a little bit on the pressure side. If I were to do it again I would get one with at least 150 psi. I mean it works well for everything but the impact gun could use a little more pressure.

For what it's worth, I went to Harbor Freight over the weekend and they had an opened box air compressor that was the 21 Gal one I was eyeing up and I was able to snag it for $100. Can't beat it for that price!

Awesome. That is a great price. Now all you have to do is wait for the Earthquake XT impact gun to go on sale. That was my last purchase from harbor Freight

Nice, How is the impact? I have a 20V dewalt that I use for pulling tires and stuff. I wasn't sure if I'd be better off getting a "brand name" impact.

I saw an article comparing the Earthquake XT with a Snap On one and it performed just as well and even exceeded the 4X more expensive one with their reverse torque. It was only by a few ftlbs. and it was an pretty even match up. I had a Kobalt one that wasn't doing very well so I was going to spend the $600 for a nice one but picked up the HF one for $100 on sale. maybe it was $110. Either way I've been happy with it. I'm not sure on the durability factor and logic would prevail that the Snap On one would last forever but as a weekend warrior I think I made the right choice.
