Airbrush Tank ?

Postby RHunter » Thu Jun 20, 2013 2:58 pm

Hi All,

I recently saw a smallish tank, used to hold air, about the size of a Bar-B-Q propane tank, and costing about $50.00 I assume you fill this at a gas station and you have some quantity of air....My question is....could this be a down and dirty way to power an airbrush for occasional use as well as fill the tires of my bicycle ?

thanks,
Randy

Sure but a spare tire works just as well is should be much cheaper.

Some of the things that look like tanks are actually small air compressors, which don't need to be filled with air. Were you referring to something like this?

Hi Cynthia,

Nope, I have seen little compressors for airbrushing...but what i saw was just the tank , sans generator. Thought it would be a silent way to work an airbrush versus the 20 dollar can of super deluxe air that Badger sells at my craft store. I like the Spare tire work around even better !, thanks Hobbyist for that suggestion. I think I had heard that before, but as I get older, I totally space on tidbits like that.<G>

thanks,
Randy
