Hello Bob and Peter,
Many thanks for your replies, info and advice I will certainly look at the hi line airbrush to run alongside my Aztec Delux Resin which was a birthday gift but not used as yet so not sure how I will get on with it. I have been away for 15 years myself so going to be a bit rusty on methods.
The website here has really helped to get back into the hobby and will start certainly be subscribing once I am set up.

Good point about the camouflage and the tip of adding the crown.

Thanks again chaps
Steve

I can't recommend this one from my own use.... but...it's only £60 including a 12-£15* Veda 130E airbrush... and £15 p&p. Pressure 50 psi

* see Bobby's review video

I am almost afraid to pose my question but I have to know. I own the compressor in the link below. Is there ANY possibility that it can be used with an airbrush???
My fear is that it would destroy the airgun? IF it is useable, do I need a separate regulator to fine tune lower pressures? Is that even possible? DO I need a seperate
moisture filter? the "works" [plumbing] is hidden under a panel. I know that it does not have a moisture filter because that is not a concern with air nailers and
inflating tires and such. Well, that's it. got my fingers crossed for a positive response. it would really save me a lot of money. BTW--this is a home use model designed to
power finish nailers and brad guns.

THANKS!

I've had a look and first thing comes to mind is overkill, 135psi will not be needed at all, but I do think you can still use it for airbrushing, with some modifications.

1st of you will need to get a hose from the compressor to a regulator with moisture filter so you can bring that 135psi down to a better working psi of 6 to 25 psi and to trap moisture.

2nd you will need to work out what adaptor you will need for the hose to attach to the compressor to the regulator.

After that you should be all set up but you may find your airflow maybe irregular and will be very load.

Hope this helps

Bob,

Thanks for looking and detailing what I would need to add to the unit to even have the possibility
of using that particular compressor. I may invest in the needed parts to see if it will work for me.
I am currently only using the compressor for inflating tires every great once in a while.
the sound WOULD be a primary consideration in the apartment I live in. Have to see what happens.
I will let you know how it goes.

Obviously I would love to buy the TC5000 but............cannot afford at this time. I bought a Veda 180 airbrush to start back modeling with.
I need a recommendation on a compressor for that airbrush. I live in an apartment so noise is a prime consideration. thanks.

I did get the parts I needed to connect the airbrush my relatively large compressor. Today I put everything together
and it seems I have a problem with the compressor--bummer. Will be talking with a repair shop tomorrow. If the repair
is more than the value of the compressor, a new one is in order. In reality, a smaller compressor designed to work with
an airbrush is more desired. My compressor is pretty noisy. I had forgotten how noisy it was till I checked it today!

TC-20 T you can get the tankless cheaper but I would get a tank as your compressor will last much longer.

this is what I have. It's quiet oiless and best of all $99.00 Have'nt had it more than 3 months so can't tell you it will last but I've read about it and has some good reviews plus customer service is great

hope this helps ya!!

Just placed an order for the compressor you linked above. I did buy a new one which will have a 2yr warranty. My big compressor can continue to inflate things and stand by for other duties. I just did not see much sense in repairing it [it does work but makes continuous loud noise--its for a job site application primarily] and worrying about all the noise. Thank you again for your recommendation.

If your worried about noise, you can build a sound proof box for your compressor to go in, which Is something I will be doing in the new workshop.

Merry Christmas to me today. I got my compressor in the post. Not the best, but it will get me going for now.
