I bought myself a present last year: a Craftsman Evolv 3 Gallon Pancake Air Compressor. This is an oil free pump that requires virtually no maintenace. The reason I bought this compressor is it comes with a 2″ brad nailer. The compressor is 1/3 HP and I wish I got a more powerful unit, but I felt for the money that this was the best value because hey… I got a free nail gun! It retails for $100 but I got it on sale for about $80. It comes with a 25′ recoil hose which is not long enough in my book and the recoil is a pain in the butt. I replaced it with 50′ Craftsman Heavy Duty 3/8″ black rubber air hose which retails for about $40. I also got the Craftsman Tire Inflator with Gauge which makes the package! It retails for about $25. Having the compressor here to keep the tires inflated on our cars, truck and motorcycles to proper PSI all year round is invaluable. It’s a very handy tool to have around! If you believe that by the time you ride to a gas station the heat from the friction of the road has already affected your tire pressure than you should also believe that you have to measure and fill your tires cold before leaving home to do it 100% accurately. Get an air compressor, check your tire pressure often and keep them inflated to the proper spec.
