If you have a Big box store get a real compressor, all the ones made for modeling are a rip off to me anyway.I use a 3 gallon tank one I bought 10 years, back , sure it is noisy but I do not care.I paint in my room upstairs, and don't paint past a certain time,wife don't say squat. can go to any pressure, plus I have a full size Porter Cable in the garage. Wear ear plugs if it bothers you so many years in the service and working diesels well can't hear too good anyway. You can find compressors for $100.00 to $130.00 that will last many years. I saw a little joke of a compressor for $430.00 LMAO, thing was a joke.
This one had a problem when I bought it , the rear kick in switch, for the run capacitor was loose, I put some locktite on the setscrew 10 years back never had a problem since.
I own something very similar, mine is branded Coleman and I have had it for over 10 years with no break-downs or repairs of any kind. The problem is the db rating is not efficient for running the compressor at night when my family sleeps, other than that it is a fine compressor and it cost me 60.00 USD.
If you want a great system for airbrushing buy a 20lb CO2 tank. 0 db, dry air, so no need for moisture trap and relatively cheap to refill. Depending on how many kits you spray a year, a single 20lb tank should get you quite far perhaps enough air for 3 to 4 kits or so depending on how airbrush heavy you are. Cost of an air tank and gauge can run you 160.00 or better, but it's worth it if you need complete quiet.
CO2 tanks on ebay - no gauge (extra 50.00 or so)
