I have the eclipse and I too have just got into painting baits. I went to walmart and bought a campbell hausfeld compressor with a 2 gallon tank on it ($68) I then went to T.S.C and added a water trap ($10) to it. It has auto cut off and you can adjust the air pressure to your brush. I like it because it dont run all the time and you have a good constant pressure. Most of all I have all of that under $100 alot less than the oter compressors.

I have an airbrush compressor (reverse inheritance from my son) but many guys like Hawgydawg use tool compressors and like them. I'd go the tool compressor route if you'll be working in an area where the noise is not an issue. Compressors can be quite loud. Even the airbrush units are not exactly quiet unless you get into very high price models.
