Compressor Help

I have a compressor that I use for running roofing nailers (small 2 tank model) - Can I use this to run an airbrush or will it be too much?

The compressor will work fine, although you will need a pressure regulator and a moisture trap.

Aztek or Paasche?

Looking at the airbrushes on the WASCO website I liked both the Paasche and the Aztek double actions (particularly the inclusive kits). I noticed that a pressure regulator/moisture trap is available for the Paasche which has me leaning toward it. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated as to which airbrush would be best.

You either love or hate the Azteks

Doesn't to be any in between. I personally don't care for them. I am single action Paashe man myself. Don't care for double actions either.

I'd go with a Paasche too. Doesn't your compressor have a pressure regulator on it now? And I'd get the moisture trap that screws into your outlet of the tank, or use an extension pipe, then run your hose off that. Those can be found at Sears or TSC..

Go iwata.
