I noticed this one.

There are a lot of choices but I wouldn’t overbuy too much. You can use the savings on others tools.

I recently bought the California Air Tools 8010 from Amazon for about $150, based on a recommendation from a prior VAF thread. Replaced a 30 year old CH that was near death. It May be small but it’s so quiet it doesn’t matter if it runs more than others. Works great & is Easily movable in case u need to use at home. Good value for the $$$ .

I went with the California Air Tools 15gal from the first post on the recommendation of another builder.

The "Quiet" part of the equation was the driving factor as I'm building in house for the time being.

Not in a garage, but in a spare bedroom, in a house, that I rent with two other people that have zero interest in aircraft construction.

After running a leak-down test on a manifold block I had built up I received a report back of "That was it? I could easily have kept watching a movie without turning the sound up."

That's a win in my book!
