For those of you who live in the U.s and have a Harbor tool and Frieght store nearby, you should do yourself a favor and get this compressor. It is on sale for $45 It is 3gallon tank, up to 100psi working pressure and has a regulator. Very nice!

Not trying to hijack the thread Nathan, but if one is concerned about noise, the silent aire brand is amazing.

I recently bought a 20A model from them. It is oiled, but is quieter than the refridgerator. It is also about ~$450 new. So go fish. If you really want to be quiet it is nice, though I am sure this one from harbor freight is fine as well if noise isn't a concern.

It's actually a bit noisier than the last husky one I had to replace. I would say kinda loud for apartment, but for $45.00 hard to resist.

I appreciate a quite aircompressor, but 450 for one just is way too rich for my blood. Do you use a diamond encrusted aitbrush too? Jk

Very Interesting. I am looking for a compressor.
Is it ready to go, just hook up the A/B and paint or does it need additional accessories ? Im a rookie with A/B, never used one yet.

Thanks for Posting this,
