The Craftsman 33 gallon air compressor from Sears has a large air tank that enables the home handyman to use it for a decent length of time. This makes it quite expensive, but more functional than smaller sized compressors, even a 26 gallon machine. The fact that it doesn't come with a hose also pushes the price up. However we got ours with a kit that included a selection of air tool accessories.
One word of warning: you do need to be clear on the fact that this is not a professional tool. It doesn't pretend to be. If you are going to be doing a lot of heavy duty work often, then you'll be better advised to buy a larger industrial type compressor. These are, of course, a lot more expensive.
The Craftsman 33 gallon air compressor can only be used for light use with cut-off tools and dual action sanders. This specifically means that those particular pneumatic or air tools can only be used for a very short period of time on the run.

I have a 33 gallon, 150# craftsman air compressor that is 5 plus years old. The compressor part works fine but have had trouble with the on/off switch from day one. The switch finally broke inside the base and can not be used to cut the motor on/off. I am looking for a place to purchase a new switch. Can anyone advise me as to where I can purchase one.
