For my own use, I bought a 5HP horizontal compressor on wheels with a 30 gallon tank from a local independent shop that built it from scratch. It's only a single stage compressor, but it can handle air tools and spray painting pretty decently and anything less demanding. It cost me about $550, though that's been some time ago, though I don't think that compressors have increased in price a great deal. It's come in pretty handy. It keeps up pretty well. A 1HP compressor won't do a whole lot, but you said you don't need it to. What are you wanting to do with it?
