An oil compressor is a device created to perform difficult work and equipped with a piston engine allowing for its intensive operation. By creating a large amount of compressed air, it is possible to power many different, demanding tools. For this reason, the compressor is one of the basic machines used by car painters. The device drives a spray gun, which guarantees the precise application of paint layers to the painted element, thus minimizing the probability of unsightly stains or other blemishes.
The compressor is also an indispensable element of every professional car workshop. It enables powering of pneumatic tools, which significantly facilitates unscrewing of seized nuts, occurring even in suspension elements or wheel hubs. We also connect to the compressor a nozzle allowing for spraying under preparations anticorrosion and other liquids. This is not all, of course, but the most important applications of compressed air.
Who will pay for the purchase of a compressor?
The compressor is not a cheap device, it also takes up a lot of space, and its weight exceeds 50 kg. These negative features can certainly discourage you from buying, especially since the compressor itself, with no additional tools attached, is virtually useless. However, if we have a DIY knack, the equipment for a house garage in this type of machine can be returned quickly. Sometimes it is enough to carry out one major repair of the car so that the amount spent on the compressor returned to the owner’s pocket in the form of money saved on the services of the mechanic.
If you decide to buy a spray gun, there is no obstacle to attempt to paint a damaged bumper or other tinsmiths yourself. Thanks to the compressor, we can easily refresh the garden furniture and facilitate the seasonal replacement of the wheels. A lot depends on our skills, creativity, and manual skills, and the compressor may even become a contribution to starting a gainful activity based on its use.
