I use 1/4" for both and it has posed no problems to date.

I prefer 1/4 but in the cold weather we usually run a 3/8 line first from the compressor. I think it takes longer for the 3/8 line to freeze.
speaking of hoses does anyone know where to get the gray Senco 1/4" hose. That is the best hose I have ever had. never gets stiff when it's cold rolls up nice and lasts forever.
1/4" for everything.

Swivels on my guns.

Use rubber hose from compressor to roof (to take a beating; moving around, having trash dumped on it, being stepped on, rolled over, etc...).

From the eave up, of course I use Polyurethane Hoses.
