Where to buy Air Tools...?
I had to buy a an air compressor for a job I did on the boat trailer and figured I would go ahead and buy some kind of good/cheap air tool kit. I found this one on northern tools http://www.northerntool.com/webapp/w...ategory%20Page
but was wondering if any of you guys know of other good deals around. I already have a grinder so I would not need it in the kit. My budget is kinda tight at around $85-100. I would give these minimal use so I dont need hi-tech ones.

I got a kit off of ebay, was under 100. I hardly ever use the tools so the price was good and they have lasted 4 years now. My only complaint is the cheap impact. One of these days I'm going to have to break down and get a real one.

I bought this kit for my shop years ago at full price and they are still working today. I did put an oiler on the 1/2 impact tool since it gets the most use and have a sign posted to oil all tools before use...ya right.
These are not high quality snap on grade tools but for the price and occasional use they work fine, even for some of the guerrillas I got working for me.

I've bean lurking around ebay but no one gets back to me on their warranty!! Only one guy said it had 60 day warranty with the builder....This kit I Posted has a 1 year warranty and extended warranty only costs $15 for 2 years including accidental damage.....I think I will bite this one.....Unless someone suggest otherwise...

Oh ya, we broke a socket and they replaced it no charge and said there is a lifetime warranty on them.
Nice to have a local place you can go to and get warranty stuff, instead of sending back and waiting for a tool you probably need now.
I know, if it was a $29 snap on socket it would not have broke in the first place.

That looks to be a good deal on the set. Harbor Freight has great deals on air tools also.
For the person who uses them only once in a while, there is no need to spend the big $$. Some of them are cheap enough, if it breaks you can just go out and buy a new one.
The 1/2" impact wrench is nice for a stubborn nut, but most of the time I still like to use hand tools. That way you know how tight your getting.
The size of your compressor makes a big difference how well some of the air tools work. Most of them need more air volume than a small cheap compressor will provide.

Hum....what type of work do you perform? I ask because I sometimes need things done and find all type of incompetent people!
