Does anyone know what the warranty is on these refurbished compressors

Apparently its one (1) year

A good compressor while it works, but consider it disposable.

This model is known to break down pretty quickly. The failure point is a small bit of plastic within the pressure regulator.
The only way to replace it is to buy another manifold (P/N N082939SV, ~$50) but that new assembly comes with that same bit of plastic that will fail within a year.

A shame to see a quality name like Porter Cable putting out products like this, but I guess you must to stay competitive.

I’ve had mine for 7 years and no problems. I use it quite often.

HAS anyone used this for framing?
I need to build an addition to my cabin, I expect I’d be using 2.5 inch nails to nail the walls together. I use the old fashion hammer method now, but I’m thinking of trying this out. Any help is appreciated.

Sure, you can use this pancake compressor for framing. As you know, the pancake has a small tank so other machines may be more demanding on available air. However, a nail gun is the one air tool which does not require great volume of air so it will do quite well. Oh yes, remember this…

Before you start using your nail gun and every day thereafter, ALWAYS add a few drops of oil (about 7 to 10 drops) before you start using the gun. Add the oil to the air inlet coupler. The oil you are supposed to use is made for air tools and can be purchased at any tool outlet.

I have had this for about 5 years and I use it with a Paslode framing nailer often. It will cycle about twice per strap of nails. Not too bad. I also use it for finish nailing and stapling. It has held up to rolling around in the back of the van.
