    I got a new toy.

    Just arrived. This can get dangerous LOL I did a lot of air brush work in College. I'm not intending to use an air brush for enhancing my painting. I like fine art to much. But more for bike work maybe even get into Tattooing.
    This lil unit is QUITE ! 150 pound of air in a 1.5 ga tank.

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Wow that's quite a little beasty for its size. Have never done air brush work but there seem to be some techniques that its essential for. There was a guy in one of my art classes in HS who did some and it was interesting to watch.

    Very cool!. I've got a paasche airbrush that I've had since HS, always used my shop compressor with it. So is there an advantage to having a dedicated compressor vs using my shop compressor?

    Darren, noise for one, maneuverability plus it's out of the way. I have an 8' air hose which is much smaller and easier to work with.

    I mean this time is so quite I can put my phone on speaker right next to it and hear a conversation.

    That looks like it would fit right on the back of a bike. I can see you heading down to Fantasy Fest and setting up your body painting booth

    Now that sounds like a plan

    I thought I was going to open up this thread and see a picture of a 37 knucklehead.
