An extra tank is, in my opinion, always a good thing for the many reasons noted on this site.

You need to be concerned about the Duty Cycle of your air compressor, so that, if it is not 100% duty cycle, you don't run it to overheat.

Why not pop over to the site map and have a look at the Plumbing section, the Tank section to get details about adding a tank.
