A central pneumatic air compressor provides power to air tools. It can deliver quality air to small and large tools. The tools receive power from the compressor when pressurized air is collected in the tank. This creates the force needed for the tools to work. The tank holds air in gallons. The average central pneumatic air compressor is 10 gallons. Each unit of air is measured in psi, or pound per square inch. It is always a good idea to buy a tank as big as possible. A bigger tank contains more air. This eliminates the need to refill the tank often. It is important to keep this in mind when you are deciding which tank is best equipped to handle your needs.
Now then, the other day I was paging through a tool catalog for Harbor Freight and Salvage and there were a number of generator and pressure washers available. Some of which were from China, and I have nothing against quality equipment from whatever country it comes from, but there is a big difference in quality, and a big difference in cost. Further there is a large gap between the number of decimals some of this equipment puts out, and it does matter, especially if you are detailing cars in a parking lot nearby offices.
So last weekend I ventured to Harbor Freight to pick up their little 8 pound inverter welder. I spent $200 though because I needed a good autodarkening helmet, a chipping hammer, and some magnets. I got the 2 year warranty just in case. Yes I know, many people like to give the Chinese welders a bad rap. But let me just say that this little welder is quite good considering the money. It is not meant for the professional welder who does structural work but for art purposes it suits me fine. I am using 6013 1/16 " electrodes at this time. I have noticed they are a bit shallow and sometimes on small joints I have to go over them because the first time it is only flux that really lays down. Any civilized suggestion is appreciated.
However, Murphy's Law may dictate otherwise, and you may one day encounter a dreaded feeble clicking sound or even nothing at all.

A smidgen of knowledge can go a long way to help you avoid issues down the road.
I will discuss safety first. You should ideally wear chemical splash goggles while working around a car battery. Batteries can potentially produce explosive hydrogen gas which can explode and release sulfuric acid. Although this is very rare, it is important to avoid any sparking around the battery and wear eye protection. Always use prudence and common sense when working around cars.
The weight and dimensions of the load will determine whether the shipment is a full truckload (FTL), a less than truckload (LTL), or a volume/partial truckload (VPTL or PTL). A shipment totaling only a few pallets or a few crates, generally not using more than 10 to 16 feet of trailer space (depending on carrier), means that your shipment qualifies as LTL. These types of shipments require your commodity be assigned a freight class via an item classification system. Note for FTL or flatbed customers, prepare to make arrangements to load and unload the shipment from the truck especially if the desired goal is to save money. The maximum weight for a truckload is usually around 40 to 44 thousand pounds (18 to ~20 thousand kilograms ). If your shipment occupies 12-14 linear feet or more of trailer space, then it qualifies as a volume or partial load.
