    I wish them luck with it, but two thoughts...

    I think that’s the first time in history where “oil free” and “quiet” have been used in the same sentence.

    Looks like something Murphy’s Law would tear apart.

    I use quiet compressors for some of the devices I work on. Quiet Air - JUN-AIR
    they are over 1800.00 for the small ones. They are almost silent and can be hooked together for larger capacities. Of course the price goes up.

    I actually have an oil free Campbell Hausfeld compressor about 19 years old, 110V 3 gallon hot dog tank. You can set it in a room and use it all day long and carry on a conversation with it running 5' away with no trouble. I have to admit I think its the only quiet oil less compressor I have ever seen. Wouldn't sell it for nothing, great for using a nail gun or brad nailer in the house.

    Redundancy or failure points
    depending on if you're an optimist or a pessimist

    If only we could have silent air tools to go with it!

    I have a Jun-air compressor I trade some work for, but I have never used it. I was going to use it for air brushing. I take a picture of it...
