I really dont know much about this stuff so thanks again!
You should have a air output regulator on your compressor, If not you should be able to reduce the max pressure at the pressure switch adjustment.

Craftsman sells the Ingersoll Rand IR-2131 (a very good impact) under their brand, quite a bit cheaper than the IR from most retailers...that's my vote. The 2131 can make over 600 ft/lbs in reverse, plenty for nearly any job and scary strong for a 1/2" drive impact.

It's been a few years since I bought one, not sure if that PN has been replaced by another, but I'm talking about the chrome/black composite case one, with the big red buttons on the back and exhaust through the bottom of the handle....

One is your compressor cut-out pressure, one is actual line pressure regulator...you can set to cut out at 120 psi, but only run 90 psi out the line, for more reserve, etc....

There is only one valve to set PSI. Like I said, this is only a cheap compressor so I dont expect much from it. However, next time it will be a kick azz one semi commercial type.

I'll post a pic (not running) of the front and back where the valve/connection is. I have it set at 90psi due to the bodgey gun ....

If that's you in your avatar, you should be able to scare the nuts off a blade.

I would have never purchased this gun if not for the fact I started receiving 2-3 Z mowers a week with blade bolts locked on so bad I would have to get them cherry red with a torch to remove them, Is it over kill yes but If i don't have to spend a half an hour a week heating blade bolts thats $$$$$$ in my pocket and once they are off a little never seize on the threads and I don't have the problem again
