    So, I bit the bullet and bought the California Air Tools 10020CAD. I'm going to put an sound meter on it when I get it in place, and compare it with the old Craftsman. Should be interesting.

    Hopefully its specs are real, as are the requirements of the Grizzly wide-belt sander, and it will work great.

    Two hunters are hunting in the forest. One suddenly clutches his chest in pain and collapses. The other hunter calls 911 on his cellphone. "What is the emergency?" "Operator, my friend just collapsed on the ground. I think he is dead! What must I do?" "OK, first of all, make sure he is really dead." "OK thenů" BANG! "Now what?"

    As Bill mentions, a tight system will hold air a long time. If you want to be sure it doesn't run at night, switch it off when you leave the shop. When you switch it back on it should not run until you use air.

    My old Craftsman compressor was anything but tight. It would definitely run all night, if I didn't turn it off.
