I have the Porter Cable pancake compressor kit that comes with 16 and 18 gauge finish nail guns. For operating nailers and staplers it is plenty of air. It would never be powerful enough to run continuous draw tools like sanders etc. Occasionally I will use it for inflating a kids snow tube, etc. That will usually require the cycling the engine two to three times to re-fill the pancake. For tires, etc. it is good. For blowing things off, you will exhaust your air quickly, and need to wait for the compressor to refill the pancake often.
