Air finish nailer

What would be a good air nailer kit for a DIY'er. I am looking to use it to install moulding, etc. I see these "in the box" specials all the time which come with a pancake compressor, nailer, etc. What is everyone's opinion? Thanks.

It depends.

JRRR.:
If you think that all you will be doing with the compressor is powering the nailer that came with it, you will probably do alright.
This compressor will be fine for filling tires, blowing and other light duty jobs.
If though you are beginning to aquire tools and may want to venture into using air for more than nailing, the compressor will likely be too small.
If you search back in this forum there is a lot of discussion on this subject.

GregH,
Thanks for the reply. I know that the compressor would be limited to light duties. I was just wondering what is my best bet. Craftsman? Bostich? They all basically have the same price. I was looking for some pro's and con's. Maybe I should asked my question a little clearer.

JRRR. :
My recommendation would be to stay away from oiless compressors.
They are noisy and have a fairly short life span.

Again I would recommend you search "compressor" in this forum and you will come up with a lot of usefull information.
