Fathers day

What are y'all gettin your Fathers?

My dad always helps me out in so many ways and I always like to repay him at this time. He use to own an auto parts store in the 80's and has a bunch of air tools, but no air compressor. I was thinking of getting him one. i don't know any thing about them. What size should i get for "around the house" kind of stuff. he works on cars a lot, but i imagine if he had one he would use it for everything.

Also, what is a good/decent brand?

Harbor Freight Tools has lots of compressors... different sizes and prices.. depends on how much and what kind of volumes and pressures the tools he will be using..

They have Campbell Hausfeld at wallmart. The pankcake compressor is $40. Is that a peice of T? I'll probably just go with the craftsman just to play it safe. Though, i wouldn't mind having one
