    Didn't we go through this before? I thought people said they melted and burnt your house down if you tried to use them? Plus the volume is pretty weedy

    here's the specs

    • Compact, powerful and portable
    • Max. working pressure (bar): 8
    • Air displacement (1lr/min): 270
    • Pressure vessel capacity (L): 24
    • Sound power level (dB): 94
    • Twin air outlets with quick-lock coupling
    • Tank pressure and air-pressure manometers with bar and PSI scales
    • Includes 10m compressed air hose and 3m mains cable
    • Weight (kg): 26.5

    Thats about 10 cfm, which is a fair bit for a compressor that size. They are a bit of a mixed bag by all accounts, but they seem to work if they are looked after, especially keeping the oil topped up.
