What do you need to use an air tank? I know you need a moisture trap. Can you use an air regulator?

A regulator is even more important if you are using stored air in a tank... Fill up the tank to higher pressure, and the regulator will give you the right pressure for air-brushing, and make it last a long time!

I have one of these and I like it a lot for the money ($90 at Walmart). It's louder than a refrigerator and quiter than a vacuum cleaner. I keep it under my work bench and the few minutes it has to run don't bother me. My wife cannot hear it at all upstairs. It's very easy to adjust the pressure, which it holds very constant. The 2 gallon tank is good for 10-15 minutes easy before starting again.

About the same noise as a vacuum is good. Does it work well for you? How does the airbrush connect to the compressor?

That's the one I had been planning to buy and low and behold, my Dad found a slightly used one at the flea market a couple of weeks ago and gave it to me. I've only used it a couple of times so far but I really like it. Not too noisy, mine cuts out at 110psi and at 15psi or so I painted a car body and some other small parts without it kicking on. Its not too big.

I don't remember if the new ones have a quick disconnect but they probably do. Anyway, mine does and all I did was screw a male connector into the end of my airbrush hose and plug it in. I have an Aztec with the little black air line. That works fine for now. I never can keep pipe sizes straight but I think it's 1/4 npt. It was one I had in the tool box. You should be able to find all you need to get connected at a hardware store.

The one I purchased did not come with quick disconnects. It did come with a 1/4" coiled hose that screwed directly into the regulator on the compressor (which I ran to the edge of my workbench). My airbrush hose directly connected to that. I did not have to buy anything extra.
