Nah....... BOTH.Nah... Overhead retractable reel cords beat wall receptacles every time.
I believe the significant pressure drops in PEX installations typically occur at fittings, since they fit inside the tubing unlike copper or PVC (and fittings normally cause a pressure drop anyway, even without the smaller diameter). It normally doesn't cost much to go up one increment in diameter. Also, bending the tubing itself rather than using elbow fittings can help a lot.A second storage tank at the end of the line may be needed with the smaller diameter PEX.

Acetylene and oxygen plumed in the building. Oh, my !I can make Ebenezer look like a spendthrift.
I've got a hundred feet or so left from a past project and a tank from an old dead single stage. I'm considering burying the PEX to connect 2 buildings to the same compressor. I can only use air in one building at a time.
You are right about the PEX fittings. They are pretty small compared to the same size copper or PVC.
While on the subject of plumbing: I've also seen a shop plumbed for acetylene and oxygen using copper pipe and quick connect fittings. The local building inspector signed it off in a commercial building. Switching to propylene would seem to be worth the effort for the added safety of a plumbed welding supply?
That moves one more collection of "they take up space" things out of the way.
Heavy shops up in the oilsands have it. the clusters that feed them always scared me... totally not what I expected.Plumbed O2 doesn't bother me but I was quite surprised that the shop used plumbed acetylene - AND - that it was inspected and approved. I saw no special fittings or monitoring equipment. May have to stop by someday to see if the system is still in use. I drive by it most every day.
I'm a wee bit more generous with tool centre space than VBHere's the little "small tool center" I made out of a kitchen accessory that we had. I put a 20 x 20 plywood square on top of the butcher block. Holds a small 1" belt sander, a medium combo sander, drill press, bench grinder, 2 small vise's, and drill bits/stuff/extinguisher below. Real handy, I can roll it over to wherever I'm working and do a lot of stuff that otherwise would require walking somewhere else. More importantly, it rolls out of the way when I need it to.

That is a really nice setup, especially if the plan is to leave it against the wall and rotate the tools and drawers to the front as needed.I'm a wee bit more generous with tool centre space than VB
