Hot dog! It’s another #ToolTuesday post. And this time, I (JZ) picked none other than our awesome new Kobalt Air Compressor. We got this amazing tool courtesy of American Millwork when we did our Built-In Bookcases, and we just pulled it out again for some pawesome new projects we have in the works (more on those later). 😉 

For now, I’ll just say that we are SO happy with this air compressor. The compact, hot dog shape actually makes it easy to store sideways. It is also lightweight enough for me to comfortably move around while not sacrificing power. Speaking of, its ratio to tank size vs. horsepower means that it can power a pneumatic tool for quite some time before it has to crank on and refill. 

If you’re looking for an air compressor and want to continue social distancing, you can always do curbside pickup at your local Lowe’s. If you’d rather not even leave the house, this awesome air compressor is available on Amazon:
