I was reading somewhere. I forget where, but it said you could buy a small tank to your compressor and use it like a reserve tank to make your compressor work less is this true?

should work, but it won't make it work any less. It still has to pump the volume of air you're using while spraying. What it will do is increase the time between each time the compressor turns on, but every time it turns on, it'll be on longer.

Its not that it works less but it has time to cool off, not burning up the motor. ps my bother inlaw is a framer and I have sean propane tanks next to his compressors.

I finally gave up on this whole idea. I was patient and waited and waited for a small, 3 gallon compressor to FINALLY come on sale at a local retail outlet. I paid a whopping $64.95 for this 3 gallon Jobmate compressor. It was on sale for 50% off. IT WORKS MINT. Finally, no more pulsating air brush compressor for me....YIPEEEEE!!!:yeah:
