I got one of these as part of a kit (CPACK270) a couple of years ago. The kit included the CAP1516 compressor, 25’ of hose, a 16 gauge finish nailer and a combination brad nailer/stapler.

I have found it to be a great addition to my shop, and use a good deal. It lives in a ‘garage’ under my workbench.

This compressor would not be appropriate for pneumatic tools like sanders, but it is terrific for finishing nails, brads, staples, etc.
