That looks pretty nice. You know to mount it to the floor, right? On mine, I put a 90 degree fitting at the bottom with a longer nipple and a ball valve for easy reaching when draining the water out everyday. Have fun with it. Is this you're first one? I bought mine after 20 years of wrenching and don't know how I went without one. Then I found Princess Auto, and went nuts buying air tools of all sorts.

For the average guy, I think you can't beat Princess Auto, especially when they are on sale. Some of the tools they offer are labeled "Professional" and I'll look for that, even though there is better stuff out there. Oiling them each day of use helps too. I did buy a high quality 1/2" impact gun at Acklands, because I use that a lot and I figure it's worth the extra bucks.
