    Looking to upgrade from a pancake compressor to something vertical, quiet, and reliable with more capacity. Doesn't need to be a whale. Any ideas appreciated.

    Thanks,

    I just picked up this one from HF (it is the DeWalt equivalent):

    The rule is to buy as big as you can afford. Once you get a big boy, doors start to open and you can think about HVLP painting, sandblasting, etc.

    Go for the whale if you can get it. Two stage at least. 60 or 80 gallon, they're close enough in size that bigger is better.
