Hi btb

A very small unit if you plan to do a lot of painting, you'd be far better off getting something a bit bigger in the compressor area. Here is a link to the kind of unit I use;- https://www.expotools.com/acatalog/AB603-Airbrush-Deal-AB603.html#SID=2

Lidl do a full size tanked compressor from time to time for around €100.00, one would need a filtration system €20.00 in Lidl (not the best unit- SIP do one for around €100.00) Lidl's one does work, it's a water filter n oiler- the oiler you don't need for painting! then the spray gun and a few connectors. These compressors are OK quality and you have the added advantage for use in other applications- pumping up her tyres!

Hi Paul.

I used one of these £77 TC88T compressors which as a moderate sized 3L reservoir and 1/5hp, so the motor is off most of the time because you are drawing air from the tank rather than direct from pump.  You would need to add a hose and airbrush. Think they also do kits including compressor and airbrush. I used an original Veda 134S, but apparently the Veda guy didn't file his trademark and there are now a few of rip-offs of poor quality, so BartSharp have launched their own range comparable to the Veda.

Airbrush: https://bartsharp.co.uk/index.php/bartsharp-airbrush/bartsharp-airbrush-130-dual-action-gravity-feed-airbrush.html

Having a compressor with an air tank has been useful for me. Hope this helps.

Yes I've only had it a year, but so far so good.  It has a moisture trap and the size of the tank makes using it almost silent most of the time.  I got the setup on Richie's recommendation and was very happy with it despite my recent boo-boo which turned out to be self inflicted.
