Does anyone know the conversion between CFM & SCFM. I believe SCFM means standard cubic feet minute, but there always seems such a difference between the two different ratings. For instance my compressor is rated at 8 SCFM @ 50psi, yet can't keep up with a 5 CFM die grinder.

Dweller, any air compressor can run air tools, but if the compressor itself can't keep up with the volume of air the impact wrench uses it would deplete the air supply to nothing in a short amount of time.
