Go to your local hardware store and look for sales or clearance compressors.
I got a nice compressor a few years ago for under 160

I have a big one, it's just not that portable. I was jus wondering if there was something that everyone use that's small and compact.

Another option is to get a air compression tank and fill it up with air before you leave the house. Should last you most of the day....

air compressor- Craftsman makes a good one for about $90 (on sale) that is perfect for the track. 125 psi and has a 5 gallon tank.

Folding table- I got a plastic one with steel legs that folds in half at Walmart for $40 it's about 3 feet wide by 6 feet long. it's very sturdy and doesn't weight very much.

Thanks Kevinmajor!!! I got a table today from Home Depot. It sounds like the one you got. 43 bucks, plastic, 6 foot in length, folds in half, sturdy, and light weight.

This is the only way to go for air at the track. Small, protable, no compresor noise, powerfull!!!!!, last all weekend easily, don't have to worry about blowing breakers from everyone running their compresors all the time.

Get it refilled at any welding supply store or paintball shop.
