    • I did it. I pulled the trigger on the Hammer A3 41. Thank you everyone for your input. Especially @Mick S for taking the time. I am extremely excited even though my new machine will be delivered......in May! Good thing I am not in a hurry.
    • That does occasionally happen to me. When it does, I pull it back out & feed the hose back in, holding it to one side or the other so it coils up on the reel more evenly. It only does it on the last 10' or so. If it got to be an issue, shortening the hose a bit would solve the issue.
    • I suggest using 2' x 4' LED panels. They are for t-bar ceilings, but can also be surface mounted and are only about 3/4" thick. You can get them in varying outputs from about 2000 - 6000 lumens. Some even have DIP switches on the back to select the desired lumen output. Because of the large surface area, they are easy to look at.
    • Hmm... I use linkable led shop lights.   My usable ceiling is about 7 foot, but that's because I have duct work and the joists are up at 8'... so hanging on the chains from the joists the lights are right at 7 foot.   I wouldn't want the light hanging much below 7 foot. The first lights I bought the led's had a white diffuser, but the last one I bought was clear.   That clear one is really blinding and I'm planning to add a diffuser to it.   I guess the term is a diffusion "lighting gel", at least based on my online research. You could look at ceiling mount fixtures instead of ones that hang on chains... I don't know if these are linkable by cords, but they usually have ways of attaching conduit to link more than one together.  
    • They handle it really well.   I bought a 30' Flexzilla on a reel at Menards maybe 10 years back.   It's extremely flexible in the winter.   I like having the reel, but it's always a pain putting the hose back in and sometimes have to do it 3-4 times as it'll bunch up too high in one spot and not go all the way in. The cheap clear pvc hose that came with my compressor I'd avoid.   But the reinforced polyurethane I haven't had any problems with.   I have a 1/4" hose in the shop for use on my nail guns and it seems pretty flexible, doesn't get all tangled.   But if you were using all day long on job sites, if you were yanking on it a lot I could see maybe it wouldn't last.
