Compressed Air in a can

6 posts in this topic

Hi,new here.

I'm wanting to start painting a few crankbaits,but I can't afford to buy an airbrush and a compressor at the same time.I've been looking at the Dual action airbrush at Wal-Mart for $40,it comes with a can of compressed air,and a few bottles of paint.
Now my question is how long does a can of compressed air last?The kit comes with 6oz and the replacement cans are 10.5oz.Or should I just wait until I can afford both?

Thanks in advance

Hi there, I never used canned air but from prior post I would think they don't last very long and get quite expensive. If I were you I would probably wait until you can afford a compressor. I think it will save you alot of money in the long run. Just my opinion. Ken Schmitz

Ok
I think I'll wait a few weeks and get both.The canned air at Wal-Mart is $8 a can ,so I guess you can spend alot of money quick.I was looking on Harbor Freight and they have a Paasche VL-SET for $49.99 ,and Wal-Mart has a compressor for $100,so I may go that route.

Thanks Wayne

The compressor will be the way to go. I've used the caned 'air' before, and besides the fact that it does run out rather quickly (20-30 baits), it also contains toxins and explosive gasses (butane/propane??). even if you spray with 'safe' paints the mix becomes noxtious.
