I first purchased a Thomas T-30 oil-free compressor back in 1984 and it was revolutionary engineering at the time, using the wobble piston for compression. This oil-less compressor with its pancake style tank is as compact and lightweight as a rugged portable compressor can be. The electrical current draw is under 12 amps so can be used with 100 foot extension cords with no problems.
I'm a commercial journeyman trim carpenter I use this compressor on many jobs it will power two finish nailers and three pin nailers all at the same operation with little effort, and can be stored in the jobox at the end of the day without taking up all the space. This machine is the quietest compressor I've seen or heard and the fact that its oil-less triples its value to me.
The T-30 I purchased in 1984 is still running like a top and has out lived three pressure gages two pet cocks and a regulator, the only maintenance I've ever preformed over the 25 years of service, is change the air filter.
This older compressor developed a corrosion pin hole in the tank after 25 years and a replacement tank was about half the cost of a new compressor. The new T-30 I purchased has a tank that is twice the metal thickness of the 84 model. Cost ratio about $1.34/ month over 25 years.
Anyone else out there have a portable compressor thats used regularly with 25 years service? This Thomas compressor is an Exellent product!
The real key with this compressor is the fine details, the balance. The tank valve used to drain water from the tank turns clockwise to open. It doesn't seal by tightening with pressure but by spinning the valve to it's lower threads which seals up the tank. Anybody who has owned a compressor knows that after a short while you start to hear hissing and sure enough, you have to find a wrench or pair of pliers etc., to sinch down the valve. But after two years of near daily use, the valve on the Thomas still opens and closes easily by hand. It costs more because it is more. I give this largely unknown compressor my highest recommendation.
