>Just how handy is it to have a compressor?
I can see how it would help to use it to get all that pesky sawdust out of every nook and cranny of my bowls, but what else may/will/could/should I use it for?

There's one on sale at Harbor Freight for $99 less 20%
It's regular price is $179
Is it worth it?
Here is the product description:
