The tools

First, the inflator. This tool will help you inflate anything that is inflatable, i.e tires, mattress, your child’s lifesaver, etc. Forget about the traditional inflator with the continuous and manual up and down movement of the pump. That is only enough for small projects and that’s it. Get this inflator instead to save you all the hassle and time.

Second of all, the drill. While there are electric drills on the market, they are more expensive that air one, a lot more. In addition, electric drills will overheat if used for prolonged period of time. Therefore, if you don’t want to run into any of these problems, get an air drill instead.


Next is orbital sander. You could buy an electric one, which, as I said above would be expensive. Not only that, it would tire your hands very quickly. Another way to do it is to use sand paper, which requires a lot of muscle and a lot of time, which I find very boring and tiring. Buy an air sander and all of the problems above will be solved instantly.

In addition to that, paint sprayer. A manual paint job requires lots of skills and patience and you may not have any of that. You want it done most quickly and most effortlessly as possible, which makes the air paint sprayer your perfect companion. Get creative and remember to wear safety mask to avoid inhaling any particles of the paint

Another tool worth mentioning is the blower. Capable of blowing out continuous streams of pressurized air and a lot less cumbersome than a vacuum, this tool will make cleaning debris out of hard to reach place an easy task. It will also render traditional sweeping obsolete.

Lastly, an impact wrench. The torque of the manual wrench depends some part on the design of the wrench and mostly on you. With an air-powered wrench, however, it is guaranteed to deliver 700 lb-ft of torque regardless of your physical health. Even the heavy repair job can become child’s play with this iconic air-tool.
