This horsepower thing has gotten out of hand.  Horsepower now means nothing.  
Its grotesquely inflated.  An old 3/4 horse compressor puts out about 3-4 
CFM.  A DA sander needs about 8CFM.  Serious sandblasting needs about 15 CFM. 
 My suggestion is to get the best 2 stage compressor you can afford as it is 
the bedrock of restoration.
