I recently came across a Going Out of Business sale and got an excellent deal on an air compressor. I wanted one to use for brad nailers and maybe a framing nailer. I'm confused about CFM ratings. Here are the specs on the compressor i purchased.

Air Pac T-35HD


Air Displacement 4.5 CFM

Air Delivery 2.5 CFM @100 PSI

Max pressure to 125 PSI

Pressure Switch Starts compressor @ 100 PSI

Stops compressor @ 125 PSI

Motor 1 HP electric motor Split Phase

Tanks Capacity 3 gallons

Now i know it'll work on a brad nailer because there was a twin pack with a brad nailer with it. However when i see the boxes of the Framing Nailers i get confused, some say they require 10 - 14 cfm. The guy at the store told me it would be fine for just about any nailer out there. But if its only putting out 2.5 cfm at 100 psi how is this possible to use with a framing nailer?

One other question.... any suggestions on what kind of hose I should buy. For home use, not professional.
