Alright, so I think my questions have been answered, thanks to everyone.

I will need a hose and couplers. That’s the part I was most unsure about.

Now I have another question… I just looked into the manual of the finishing nailer, and it says that it requires 9.39 SCFM with 100 fasteners per minute @90 psi. But that doesn’t mean my compressor does need to have 9.39 SCFM, does it? If that’s so, I am looking at a big compressor in the $800+ range

If I use a compressor with less SCFM, does it simply mean it will shoot less nails per minute, or will I not have enough power to properly seat a e.g. 2 1/2” nail?

Man this stuff is confusing… maybe I should just keep hammering by hand, but I have at least 300 lft more to go in baseboards etc!
