What to look for in air compressors for air tools?

Some time this summer I'd like to invest in some Craftsman air tools. The only problem is I don't know what to look for in an air compressor. Anyone have some advice for me...?

Something with a big enough tank so the compressor itself isn't running all the time when using the air tools. Also, if you are planning on a lot of grinding or cutoff wheel use (continuous duty tools) get a compressor with a high CFM capacity... if you are planning on air ratchet or air impact gun only you can go with a lower CFM capacity compressor.

That is all I can think of at the moment,

I found a Coleman compressor at Costco - 30 gallon or so for a good price. I'd suggest investing in a better one than that, as I plan on doing at some point. Doesn't need to be much bigger than that though. I'll give some specs on mine tomorrow.

Good thread!
