One general caveat for folks setting up their first air tools. NPT pipe thread sizes are based on the inside diameter of 19th century galvanized pipe. So a 1/4" NPT fitting for your hose is actually a tad over 1/2" compared to the NC/NF thread system. And, don't get more hose than you need, since the pressurized hoses are not flexible like a power cord. Too much hose is a royal pain in the keister. The unit is light and easy to move around. If you want more length use a good extension cord and move the unit as needed. A 25' hose is a good choice for most applications. The one exception might be for sharing a unit between two users, which it is setup to do , and can handle quite easily. But frankly, I would be tempted to get a second unit rather than longer hoses.

Out of Warranty, Out of Luck.
Don't be a sucker fool like me-Buy Porter Cable or Senco in this class of compressor; just cut loose with the money, you'll be thankful.
I can't find a thing wrong with this tool for running nail guns on smaller jobs. It did have one fitting that leaked slightly right out of the box but that was an easy fix. Only time will tell about durability but so far I love this little guy.
I would not recommend it for running more than one nailer at a time [2 finish guns maybe], you should accept the limits of 2.6 cfm air delivery or buy a bigger unit. When i hear a small compressor like this running almost constantly I cringe, that's tool abuse.

holds the pressure in. If you did that already, and still no pressure, most
likely you got a lemon.
