What's the best compressor for general woodworking tools. I bought a Sears compressor but am afraid it may be too small (2HP, 12 GAL). I want to run nailers and staplers and maybe a paint gun. As long as I son't continuously cycle a nailer will this compressor be adequate? TIA

Personally, I would recommend one with a larger tank, especially for painting. The best advice I can give you is to take a look at the SCFM requirements posted on the boxes of the tools you might want to use and compare them to the rating of your compressor. I think that you will find that the majority of them require a larger one. : (
