    Great introduction to airbrushing

    I just have to say, at the price, you really can’t beat it.

    This little compressor has really had a workout since I bought it a little while ago. I paint miniatures for tabletop games as well as woodturning, so it’s had alcohol inks, acrylic inks and acrylic paints through it pretty much daily since I’ve got it.

    First of all, there’s not really much of a manual supplied with this, but there are many good resources online about how to adjust the pressure and how to take care of a compressor. It would again be nice if there were warnings including some of the “gotchas” like not leaving air in the tank (will rust the tank) but it seems like it’s seldom that a tool includes a full maintenance guide these days!

    The actual compressor is very quiet, about half as loud as my Hyundai 24L compressor I use out in the workshop, which is ideal as I really bought this for use in the house, or for projects away from where my main compressor lives. It’s not the standard use case for this compressor – but it will actually output the 60-80psi required to drive a small nailgun which has been handy already…! (luckily I had the appropriate 1/4″ – 1/8″ adapter!).

    The tank on the compressor is quite small – so if you’re using it to paint a large area (priming for example) you can expect the compressor to be running more or less constantly – however for the intended use case of using alcohol inks on turning projects, you’ll probably find that it runs maybe twice for the entire work. The largest process I’ve put it through was priming 98 miniatures for a large board game – it was running more or less constantly for an hour and boy did the head unit get hot!!! Still performed like a champ though!

    The regulator it comes with does a good job of regulating the pressure down to the 15-25psi you want for airbrushing, but mine didn’t come preset to anything useful. The Safety valve is conveniently placed on top too, so it’s obvious if there’s any wear or obstructions. I’ve not yet tried opening the tank at the bottom yet (something I tend to do annually to drain out any collected condensation, prevent my tank rusting through and becoming dangerous) – but it looks like a fairly standard hex/allen will do the job, I expect it to be absolutely loaded with loctite, but time will tell!

    All in all, I would recommend this compressor to anyone that needs a small compressor. It’s fiesty, well prices, and chugs away through the frankly egregious workload I’ve put on it. Great buy!
