Air Tools You Should Own
Air tools have many benefits. They produce high speeds with lower torque and inertia than electric tools. They are also smaller and more compact. There are lots of reasons to use air tools, and Total Tools has put together a list of air tools you should have in your toolbox.
An air impact wrench is better than a hand model because it's powered, but for auto work, it's better than an electric one because it's more compact. You're often working in a confined space when you're under a vehicle or its hood, so you need the most compact tools possible. The air impact wrench gives you just that.
If you plan on installing trim in your home, you'll want to invest in a brad nailer. Brads are very thin nails that are almost invisible once they're driven home. You usually won't even need carpenter's putty to cover them. Brads are also very difficult to drive in manually, so a brad nailer is a must for any job that you want to use brads for.
For the same reasons and jobs an air drill beats out an electric drill, an air sander beats out an electric sander. Smaller, doesn't overheat, and safer in flammable and combustible surroundings, the air sander is a must for heavy duty sanding work. There are tons of different heads available for virtually any sanding job. With the right air tools, you can do a professional-looking job in a much shorter amount of time. Air tools are more compact and deliver higher speeds than their electric counterparts.
