I know its not for the production guys, and I have not tried anything co2. Just asking the question has anyone tried co2 tanks to power an air brush? Been reading about the use of small portable tanks filled with co2 that are being used to power nail guns by woodworkers and by the off road guys to refill tires and run tools. They are often using paintball gun tanks and adding a regulator made for co2 and getting hundreds of nail gun shots from a single refill that cost about $4.00. Ok where does this fit into this fourm? If it can power a nail gun then an airbrush should be a low usage tool and should last a long time, I think. The parts don't seem too expensive, regulator $35-$100, paintball tanks $20- $50 and $4 to fill the tanks. I think you need two tanks an keep a full one on hand. The portability enjoyed by the woodworkers and the off road guys is not a feature for most lure makers since we are mostly a shop bound bunch but other advantages could be - No noise of compression. No chance of moisture or oil contamination. No compressor to buy or replace, or maybe used less often. And just a cool tool that has other uses.
