Compressors are discussed here on TU virtually every week. I did a search on ps900 compressor and came up with 5 links, another search on compressor revealed 193 links.

Here's one to get you started. http://www.tackleund...compressor.html

Enjoy your reading.

I will say, just because it will be there staring at you when you click on Vodkaman's link that I, and a friend who is an excellent painter both use 1/8 horsepower Harbor Freight airbrush compressors. I use mine in the house, it hums along without a bunch of noise, it has a handy regulator that I can quickly adjust, has plenty of power, an auto cut-off switch, can be easily moved & takes up little space, and if stolen, I'd buy another one exactly like it without a moment's hesitation. I never run it wide open, too much power for that, I usually regulate it where it sprays a constant 30, and turn it dow when I want to do fine detail with my Iwata Eclipse HP-BS (gravity fed).
