I learned some things recently.
-If you want a quality, made in the USA compressor nowadays, you can't just go buy one. Stores only stock import stuff to keep the costs low. I had to call and have one custom manufactured for me. It was a cool process though. I got to choose my compressor head, tank size and configuration, motor, and everything. It has a 50,000 hour service life so I hope to get many years of use out of it.
