    Another vote for Mist away. I like it better than my Royal. It's way quieter and seems to do a better job of removing mist. Plus they are made an hour away from me.

    For me 1000 PSI TSC has been a game changer drilling and tapping 304 day in and day out. I use it here and there for milling when it helps. Like Frank says. It costs money to run the big pump.
