Harbor Freight has a small Central Pneumatic compressor for $70 but I have a Porter-Cable pancake style already for my air tools.I'm not familar with the Central Pneumatic,which one of the 2 would be better to use for airbrushing? Thanks

Hotrod,

I use a 12 year old sears (10 gal). I cut the pressure to 40 at the tank and then to as low as 3 at my brushes. I use badger brushes (100 and 150). I do birds and fish also and I have no problems.

The one that you have will work just fine. Just make sure that you have a regulator on it so you can adjust the psi. I use a 2 gal. pancake compressor myself.
