A compressor by itself (even your home compressor) only puts out 10 CFM (few CFM more or less) Add in the storage tank and now you "compress" the air and create pressure. Just like the air from your mouth....open your mouth and breath out air onto your hand.....meh. Now blow that same air through your puckered lips and you can feel it... same air....less volume more pressure. Try sealing off the output hole from the compressor with your finger....bet ya cant.
