jay5 Posted April 26, 2005 Report Share Posted April 26, 2005 So, I am looking ahead to the finishing portion of guitar building. I am almost at the point of being fully "tooled up" ($100 a week part time doesnt make for a speedy collection of tools ) so my project should be finished midway through the summer. I am having so much fun just working out templates and jigs that I cant imagine not starting another guitar as soon as this one's finished. Anyway, that brings me to my question(s). I was origionally planning on finishing this guitar with Reranch rattlecan products but after reading some of Jeremy's awesome tutorials I decided that in the long run it would probably be better to bite the bullet and spring for a decent gun and compressor. Going on Jeremy's advice, I found this gun which looks pretty decent. It says that it needs 13 CFM @ 23 PSI. Most of the compressors I have seen rate their CFM output much lower than that but at higher PSI. For instance, this compressor from Porter Cable has a 7.7 SCFM at 40 PSI and 5.5 SCFM at 90 PSI. Would I be wrong to assume that I could get close to 13 @ 23PSI? Does this thing have decent HP as far as compressors go? I guess I am really looking for a little guidance to see if I'm heading in the right direction or not. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys!
