Hi Tree,

 

When sand blasting or paint you need a continuous flow of air. His means a compressor with a large tank capacity.

 

Why a large tank, because smaller tanks deplete their air supply too quickly, resulting in the compressor turning on and causing pulsations in the air flow.

 

Pulsations in the air flow cause spattering of paint and a reduced pressure for sand blasting.

 

So for the tasks you want to perform you will need a 60 -80 gallon compressor, and water and oil traps to prevent moisture and oil from ruining your paint job.

 

Mike,
