My father bought me a 3 gallon Crasftman compressor for $99 at Christmas time. It's pretty loud, but very effective for cleaning most anything. Just won't run the automotive tools I wanted it to run.

So it's a nice little hobby type compressor. I just cleaned all my Warhead parts with it...works wonderful.

Here is a link to a similar one for $109: http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_12605_00915312000P

hahaha Qaart linked the EXACT model I got for X-Mas. Sears has it for $139.

Whatever you do, stay away from the $50 one at Walmart. I bought one thinking it would work well for blowing off my cars and it sucks!
