"Every child should have mud pies, grasshoppers, waterbugs, tadpoles, frogs & turtles, elderberries, wild strawberries, acorns, hickory nuts, trees to climb, animals to pet, hayfields, pine cones, rocks to roll, sand, snakes, huckleberries and hornets – and any child who has been deprived of these has been deprived of the best part of his education." -Luther Burbank 1849 - 1926

Why Air Tools Are Pulling the Plug on Electric Tools

I love tools. Art tools. Carpentry tools. Handy dandy tools to turn creativity into usefulness! I have never tried air compressor powered tools, but this article makes me want to check into it. I've seen the workmen in our community using them and these tips make sense.

Home improvement tips on how air superiority can help homeowners.

Home improvement jobs aren't solved with a single tool, but with the right combination of tools.

According to Jon Hoch, founder of Air Compressors (, air power is the key.

Hoch says that there are three main reasons why a growing number of do-it-yourselfers are pulling the plug on their electric tools in exchange for air tools:

1. Power to Weight

One of the biggest advantages is that air tools do not require their own motors, which makes them smaller, lighter, and easier to handle.

Air tools deliver more torque and higher revolutions per minute than an electric-powered tool, enabling users to accomplish their tasks more quickly and effectively.

2. Value

Accordingly to Andy Landsly, a homeowner who recently switched to pneumatic tools, the less expensive air tools and accessories quickly offset the air compressor expense.

"When you buy an air compressor, you're getting one powerful motor instead of a dozen small little motors that burn out," said Landsly. "My air tools last a lot longer than electric-powered tools."

3. Versatility

Whether you're inflating tires and backyard pools or building elaborate decks, air tools are an easy-to-interchange alternative to electric-powered tools.

Landsly uses a variety of air tools for different tasks, including an impact wrench, spray gun, finish nailer, angle nailer, and ratchet wrench. "I really like the simplicity of having one power source for all of these tools," said Landsly.
