A nail gun compressor is a tool that delivers air to a pneumatic nail gun. The power of a nail gun compressor is measured in pounds per square inch. The minimum amount of volume of air a nail gun needs in a compressor is measured in cubic feet per minute.
When choosing a compressor, it is important to make sure that the PSI matches the requirements for the nail gun. Because a pneumatic nail gun must always be plugged into the compressor, workers get a smaller range of movement with them. However, a nail gun compressor can also be used to power other pneumatic tools. People who use the compressor for multiple tools need to purchase larger compressors.
