No, what I'm saying is that systems don't really cross over. You can buy an inexpensive $50 DC compressor that will re-fill your tires (albeit slowly) that I guess you could use to fill pool toys, etc. Or you could buy a nitrogen tank, which you could use for a kegarator, or to carbonate water. Or if you dive, you could use a scuba tank in your rig. But if you are thinking of a compressor that runs air nailers day after day, or even higher capacity ones that run air ratchets, spray guns, etc.--forget it, they don't really cross over.
