First off, what is an air compressor?

Air compressors are devices that convert power using a motor as a medium into pressurized air. The more air is forced into a storage tank, the more the increase in pressure, and then the energy that is contained in the compressed/pressurized air, can be used for a variety of applications.

Where to buy?
