    Does anyone know what size of an air compressor do I need for this size cabinet?

    look at sears. they have some good deals right now on craftsman compressors.
    18-30 is great for a hobbyist. Look at CFM spec.

    If that's the case the Makita I have is wayyyyy to small. I had a Craftsman compressor. It was so loud I got rid of it. I think I have to look for an oil-cooled unit for more quiet operation. If I have to buy a new one I think I would get a Dewalt.

    It seems like the oiled ones have higher cfm and are quieter

    I've got a 20g craftsman one that is loud!!!!!

    Home depot had some good deals on dewalt comps. Keep an eye out for some good sales. Craftsman do run a little loud, but not too bad.

    I like this. But it's so freakin expensive.

    We have a slightly larger cabinet at work, but not much bigger. Not sure of the specs on CFM. I do know we have a 200 gallon, twin piston, air compressor. Nice compressor, but if you're blasting something bigger and wide open on the gun for a few minutes it runs non-stop. If you give it a few to regen the tank it will stay off for 3-5 minutes.
