Pancake compressors

2 posts in this topic

Has anyone used a pancake compressor for airbrushing? (like the Bostitch?) They are priced cheaper than airbrush compressors;and are a little larger. Could be a good deal?

I use one. It works great. I leave the regulator on the compressor set at 80psi, and have an inline combo regulator/water separator for my airbrush that I set at 35psi. Lots of capacity, quick recovery. The only drawback is noise, and that will vary, depending on manuf. and model.

Just be sure to have a separate regulator for the airbrush, so the compressor tank can be kept at a higher pressure for more storage.
