What is the life span of a compressor?

Apparently, about 400 resin cars!
After painting about 400 cars, my little compressor gave up the ghost today while I was painting some O scale brass cars for a client. Nothing like the telltale scent of burnt electrical devices and factory smoke rising from the internal workings to suggest to one that something is amiss.
Fortunately there was enough air in the tank to allow me to finish the job and clean the air brush.
And, bonus round, Canadian Tire was having a sale on compressors. $60.00 bought me a new, larger unit along with a throw away nail gun.
Anybody want a nail gun?
