5 posts in this topic

Hey guys,

I know a few of you recommened a compressor at sears for $99. Which one is it? Ive seen one with 2 tanks for 99. Is that the one? If so, would you happen to know offhand what size fittings i would have to purchase to fit a airbrush gun? I will be ordering iwata cr rev. I would like to order the hoses and fittings at the same time. Also, whats a water trap? should I need to order one of those from dixiearts too? Thanks abunch, you guys guys have been a HUGE help.:yay: Rick Meldrum

1.Compressor should be fine.I use a $89.00 Husky from home depot.The bigger reserve tank you have the less it will go on.

2.Water trap separates condensation from the compressed air and is collected in a plastic bowl.

3.For the hose,get one from Iwata find out what size the compressor connection is and match em up.I think my was 1/4 npt.

Stay away from that Paasche blue compressor.

It sucked!!!

If that is the 4 gallon craftsman it will work fine. Mine looks almost the same (in red w/wheels). After I got my airbrush, I found the moisture trap at Home Depot. The fittings that I needed came in a package with the compressor.

Don't purchase every color of paint yet. Buy about 5 colors (red, blue, yellow, black, and white) and get started with that, and then build your pallet from there.
