My problem now is that I need a much bigger compressor.
I might get it in the form of moving to a new shop that has a real production grade compressor and lines plumbed throughout the shop.
I'll send you some pictures of our garage compressor setup if you like. 200ish gallon tank system, 5hp continuous compressor and three regulators plumbed with hard line. I can't remember off hand what the CFM of the setup is but we've never had to wait for it to fill up while we're using a ton of air tools.

The worst thing is having some older American made tools that are seriously worn out and having Craftsman replace them with the horrible Chinese stuff they have now.

After a lot of searching I finally found some triple square (serrated) bits that don't suck. KD Tools are nowhere near the cost of the Snap-On triple square bits but they're incredibly well built, the set my dad has is over 30 years old.

If you're working on VWs, Opels, or some other German cars you're probably going to want to avoid those lovely Lisle branded ones, these KDs actually last more than one use.

Those should be good, it looks like Schwaben tools are made in Germany.

I've got a ton of bodywork to do, any suggestions for random orbit/DA sanders?

I've got plenty of air but electric would work too.

E: What about :

Please, please never use cinderblocks to hold anything in the air that may have any body part under it. Ever.

The actual integrity of POR doesn't go away with UV exposure, it just turns ash colored. The HUGE problem with powdercoating is if there is existing rust or a break/chip in the coating, rust spreads under it and it all just falls off.
