    If you want quiet get a screw compressor. I have one on the shop wish list.

    Of course you could just by a cheapie and put it outside in a shed.(just noticed where you live)

    Rotary screw then. They are rated for continuous duty and will make all the air your shop will ever need. There are units made without a receiver(tank) that have a modulator to control output. You turn them on in the morning and when there is a call for air the modulator closes. Otherwise it sits in idle mode.

    Can you tell I've researched this?

    Looks real nice, I'm jealous. Might be a re-badged Ingersoll-Rand which are top drawer. With the enclosure it should be nearly silent.

    is that big enough? Why not get a bigger tank, so the thing doesn't have to run all the time?

    Industrial screws are meant to run 24/7/365 only stopping for routine air filter and oil changes. They have no receivers(tanks). Output is modulated or throttled dependent on demand.

    Another cool thing about a modulated screw is they are at full output the moment you turn them on. Flip the switch and get to work.

    Like I said one of those bad boys is on my wish list.

    We've got a local supplier that can supply this unit to us. The Zund requires 300-400L per minute. So no matter what size tank you're going to have the unit is going to run when using any tools that need air.
