Default Air compressor qeustion ???

I am looking at buying a used air compressor. My question it if I am wanting to run impact tools and maybe a small sandblaster what should I look for as far as specs go? One that I was looking at is a 60 gallon 3hp and the take can hold 200 psi 220v single stage. it is a case brand. please help any info would be great.

you want the most CFM at your working pressure. for most tools that is at 90 PSI. for example. the harbor freight 60 gallon compressor makes 15.8 cfm at 90 psi

10cfm @ 90 psi will run most anything but a you may want something with a 60 gal tank if you are doing a lot of bodywork or running any kind of tool that spins a lot.
