Hey everyone, we have talked a lot about airbrush compressors and last night I was in Lowes and saw something that might help some of you out. They had a Delta 100psi. 2 gal. tank type with a regulator for $99.00, looked like a pretty nice unit. You guys might want to check it out. :Rich:

Thanks for the headsup. I'm looking to buy an airbrush within the next few days. Did this unit have a moisture trap?

Not sure, was in a hurry and didn't look at it that long. The regulator is kind of inside a shroud.

The Delta is a 2 Gallon 100psi unit. It does NOT have a moisture trap but Loews does sell them for ~$20.00.

Flipper , I've read your post and was in Home Depot , which had the Compressor you have mentioned, The only problem with it is,
Its an Oiless Unit with a Ninety Day Warrenty and are noisier
than the Oil type Compressors
Being in the building Trades i have found Rolair Makes a Excellent
Compressor, they make a 2.5 gallon 125psi max which is the most
quite compessor on the Market, I have one and not only use it for Pneumatic tools but also my Airbrush , Moisture trap is not included but really aren't all that much , less than 20 dollars for a good one, Just my .02 s

Looks nice, but it is over twice the price. I was trying to let everyone that was budget minded about a 99.00 option. I have a regular airbrush compressor that is about as loud as a fridge, it's great. Thanks for posting the information for everyone, I am sure it will help someone.:Rich:

Your welcome Flipper, Just thought i'd post it for those guy's that want a Compresser that lasts years, My dad purchased one 22
years ago and it still runs Great, with an oil sump compresser
all you need to do is change the oil at least once a year, maybe more if you use it everyday like i do.:VC:
