Well, I think Iâ??ve narrowed the candidates.  I dropped the Ingersoll Rand 
after Miq sent me a YouTube video from a guy that has two motors fail, and more 
Googling seemed to indicate this is a common problem.

Iâ??ve replaced the top end of the pool with the Quincy QT54.  Almost every 
review on this is positive, and it is more compressor than Iâ??ll ever need.  
It is about double the Kobalt in price, which isnâ??t that much of a deal for 
me, but it does weigh in at 475 lbs, so Iâ??m not sure I could wrestle it into 

I think it will be between that one and the Kobalt from Lowes.  The Kobalt 
should be plenty of air for my needs, but reviews are mixed, and apparently 
customer service is awful.

BTW, this is replacing a Craftsman 12 gallon, advertised at 3 HP, but being a 
110V unit, that seems optimistic at best.
