      Invest in the future and definately get a 2 phase unit (240V). And make sure it is NOT an oil less compressor. Tank size around 40 to 60 gallon. Motor about 5 to 7 hp should be fine for now.

      There was a lengthy thread about compressor about a month and a half ago. I'm pretty sure if you do a search you should find it.

                      can you buy the propane tanks from sears or wal mart or anywhere , like for the grills or do you have to go to a gas company

                        They use the same gas as your BBQ grill
