What is a good psi for an air compressor?

The air pressure generated by the compressor inside the tank is measured in Free Per Square Inch, or PSI. Light compressors usually have 90 psi, which is generally enough for pneumatic tools for simple household tasks, including nails. The most powerful compressors can generate 150 psi or more.
