I bought the Bostitch CPACK270 ‘kit’ in June of 2007, and have found it to a great addition to my shop. It gets used a lot.
The ‘kit’ included:
—CAP1516 1.5HP (Peak) oil-free contractor compressor
—SB-1664FN 16-gauge, 2-1/2in. finish nailer
—SB-2IN1 combination brad nailer/finish stapler
—3/8in. x 25ft. heavy duty airline with MPT fittings
—Tire inflator chuck
—Thread sealant tape
The CAP1516 is a light-weight compressor (19-1/2 lb.) and quiet … about the same noise level that we get from my wife’s vacuum cleaner.
If you need to put a new roof on the house or frame in a new room addition, this compressor is not the right tool. But if you need to finish a trim job, staple some upholstery, or use ’a few brads and some glue’ ala Norm Abram, this is definitely a tool you should look at.
This compressor would not be appropriate for pneumatic tools like sanders, but it is terrific for finishing nails, brads, staples, etc.
In the two-and-a-half years I have had it, I have not had a single problem or complaint. It is exactly what I thought and hoped it would be.
