    No, but unless you are using pneumatic tools why the need for it?

    Course, I guess it would be good for blowing out trapped water from trim & such.

    Rarely since I am only a hobby detailer, but I do occasionally use it to blow sand out of the vehicle carpet and to blow any accumulation of "stuff" out from under the seats.

    I have access to it but only use it for drying the engine bay.

    I have, but do not normally use for detailing, unless I'm working on the interior and then only if I have crud in a hole of some kind. IF I had a place warm enough to wash the car during the winter then compressed air would be a necessity for blowing out locks and the like.

    I use it all the time. Interiors to loosen dirt in seats and carpets prior to vacuum and the Tornado dash/crevice tool.my wool pad spur has nipple for air hook up for drying after wash and to aid in cleaning pad during compounding.

    3" D/A for tight spots and the 3 " rotary.

    I wish... if I had the room for a large compressor in my garage I would love to have it. It would be a handy tool for cleaning out the cracks and running tools.

    Unfortunately not. That's where the leaf blower comes in.
