From the Manufacturer
Thomas Industries T-635HD is a quiet running (69-decibel) 3/4 HP compressor that is both portable and versatile. Delivering 1.7 cfm at 100 psi, it has plenty of power to support a framing gun when doing studwork, a roofing gun when shingling, or (2) finish guns at the same time. Weighing only 26 pounds it is easily transported and moved around the job-site. With it's low amp draw (6 amps) it can be used most anywhere without fear of fuse or circuit breaker problems. Other uses include, tire inflating, painting, airbrushing, small air tools, and winterizing water lines and RV's.

My third attempt at a portable was the winner. The Thomas 3/4 HP model, at 26 pounds, is so lightweight that I can comfortably pick it up with TWO fingers. It's also very small: 16" long, 17.5" high, and 7" deep. Quality is first rate. Although it hardly qualifies as "quiet", it isn't nearly as noisy as other compressors I've heard. I installed a 16" stainless steel braided faucet plumbing hose on the compressor's air-outlet port; routed the hose out the back under the motor support, and screwed on a quick disconnect coupling. First thing that gets plugged into the quick-disconnect is a regulator, since none comes with the unit. This setup works fine. Because the tank is only 2 gallons (to keep weight/bulk down), the pump comes on more often than on larger units, but when it does, it's only on for about 12 seconds (if you're not using air). The unit comes on when pressure drops below 100 PSI and goes off at 125 PSI.
Thomas's Perma-Lube pump design results in a 100% duty cycle. Translation: the compressor can be used continuously, without letup. Some compressors have only a 50% duty cycle, which means you shouldn't run it more than 30 minutes for every hour used, as that could cause excessive wear on the pump and/or motor. The last thing I need to worry about when working on a project is giving my tools a rest.
You'd want a bigger unit if you had two roofing or stud-nailers going, but for low-air-volume requirements such as trim work, this little Thomas unit is just about perfect. If you can afford the best and need a truly portable machine, this is it.
September 2006 update:
While working on a home renovation project, the compressor's low air pressure switch clicked, but the motor didn't start. By the time I got to the compressor, the motor was smoking, literally. Perhaps there was low voltage to that particular outlet in that 46-year-old house. In any case, the little Thomas had sat there for a few minutes just humming; and overheated. Am wondering if the motor would have burned out had I not gotten to it in time. As hot as it was, it should have shut off by itself, but maybe it lacks over-heating circuitry. After it cooled, I plugged it into an outlet on another circuit and it worked fine.
I does provide the airflow, and so far works without any problems.
Of course, it is so loud that working in the same room is not possible.
could have a little larger carrying handle, but I have very large hands. This is a winner.
I worked on a top notch remodeling company restoring historical houses, and a carpenter used one on everything from framing, to trim work, rain or shine Thomas kept up...Since then I have been waiting for my Emglo to get retired so I too can be a proud owner of a Thomas T-635HD
One thing that I did not like when my Thomas T-635HD arrived was a real lack of directions to assemble the few parts that did need to be put on before operation, but anyone with common knowlege of compressors will figure it out.
Also a FYI for those ordering... REMEMBER!!! to get a pressure control valve, and all the connections you will need to mount a hose coupler; because these items do not come with the tool.
This compressor is not intended for HIGH-PRODUCTION ie... nail-off on sheeting, production framing or sand-blasting... if you are in the market for a compressor that is small,light;and dependabley quiet... Your search has ended here !
Don't get fooled by tool packs that come with nail gun, air-hose and compressor in one deal you will be looking for a new compressor soon.
Update: It's been eight years now since I bought it for a home remodeling project. It's still driving nails, spraying paint and varnish, filling tires, and blowing dust, and it still works like it did when it was new.
