Todd-
If you don't have a shop, where will you be spraying?
You definitely don't want to spray inside the livable part of the house, in my opinion.

As close as I can get to the neighbour's dog.

Seriously, I won't be spraying any time soon. I just want to make sure the system I get can handle it. Building a spray booth is not rocket science, there's plenty of good info out there. And no, it would not be in the house. As mentioned, I'm in a new (to me) house and it didn't come with a shop. Once the living quarters are done, and a few other major projects, the shop will come.

John, Where's BusyBee? I've never heard of it. I've seen that same Makita model on sale a few places lately. Makita must be discounting it to the retailers.

RJB, I have no shortage of electric tools, just ask my wife. No need to duplicate them in air. The primary reason for air is for brads to use as you do for speakers and home projects, but also for future considerations (like spraying). I use plenty of glue and clamps but sometimes small quick nails are perfect, especially if I could drive them with one hand - which is what I'm most interested in.

I know, there are a ton of options for finishing speakers. I'm not a newbie at that or woodworking (though I don't profess to be an expert either), just new to compressors and air tools.

BusyBee Tools is the Canadian equivalent of Grizzly (USA). They've been in business for 30+ years and started out importing Taiwanese knockoff stationary power tools.

Buying locally is always best IMO, but checking on the BusyBee price keeps everybody competitive.
