Pancake compressor and brad gun combo
Morning fellas. Saw this deal pop up on Lowes.com and have been in the market for awhile. Anyone have this rig or have any suggestions for something similar?

I will be using it for small furniture builds and home projects. I like it's small size and the fact I can air up a car, truck, or trailer tire as well.

Bostitch 0.8-HP 6-Gallon 150-PSI Pancake Portable Electric Air Compressor

Have a similar setup with the Home Depot brand. I use a gun that shoots brads or staples.. for me I like options.

My father has the porter cable version and it has worked great for 10+ yrs and he used both alot when he was building furniture. I have the CDN harbor freight version and the compressor works great but brad nailer crapped out last yr. A small compressor at home is a great thing

Yup. I didn't want to drag my big one out the other night to fill up one tire, so I ran by my mom's house and used that one. Much easier than wheeling mine out, waiting 5 minutes for it to fill up, and waiting for it to drain

Seems like a good one. I have a 3 Gal Harbor Freight version. As soon as I start filling up a tire, it kicks back on. Still, a nice option to have at home instead of taking it to the gas station to air up. My brad nailer does staples as well. I probably use staples more than brads.

I'd go to Harbor Freight and buy a compressor and 18ga Brad Nailer, more compressor and a great little nail gun for a little less than $170.

I own that one, and it's been great for home use. Bought it with a brad nailer for extensive trim work around the house. Now I mainly use it for small projects and to inflate tires and toys.

I bought a "reconditioned" one with the 3 tools for just under $200 from CPO Outlets:

Factory Reconditioned Bostitch BTFP3KIT-R 3-Piece Nailer and Compressor Combo Kit - $199

Mine came looking brand new and I haven't had any issues with it. I like having 3 tools to choose from depending on whether I need nails or staples.

ETA: Depending on the urgency of your need, you might be able to wait it out and get a new one from Lowe's for $200. They go on sale for $200 at least 2x a year.

I have the Bostitch and bought it from CPO outlet. (Love that site)

Works great, of course capacity is low so it turns on and off a good bit, but so what.

Careful though, once you buy one air tool you will start wanting to buy more.

I have this compressor LINK and this nailer LINK/.

With the harbor freight gift card, both can be had for under $200. You will have a compressor that can do double what the pancake compressor can.
