    Just to be super clear, the parts I'll be making are fairly small. The stock material will be a 5/8" square at maximum, so would the additional weight still make an impact? I've seen people mention...

    Kazlx,

    I'm actually looking around for some used compressors so I'm hoping that some decent ones go on auction soon. I'll be sure to create some back up plans for potential failures.
