Your opinion?

Paasche has a good reputation as far as I'm able to determine, though I don't use them myself, as I am not an airbrush painter.

Of more import is what you want to do with it, in terms of is it big enough for the airbrushes you want to use, are you planning earning a living with it or is this Paasche compressor just for hobby work? These questions I cannot answer for you.

I hope that an airbrush artist out there that has a similar Paasche compressor will see this post and add their comments here for you as well.

How do I set up this compressor for air brushing.

by Tim Brown

I was given this old Paasche compressor and it seems to run just fine. It has an outlet at the end of the handle.

What I am not sure about is how do I hook up a air brush to it.

Do I need a regulator? Since there is no air tank will it shut off when I am not not spraying paint?

Any help would be great.

If the outlet at the end of the handle is a coupler, then the air line from the air brush plugs into that with a connector.

Typically, you would use an air regulator to reduce the air pressure to the appropriate level needed for the brush and paint.

Since I don't know the model of your Paasche air brush compressor, I cannot answer the question about when the compressor will shut off. If the compressor had a tank then the compressor would shut itself off when the correct tank pressure was reached. Without a tank, your compressor may be a demand compressor, compressing air when the flow to the air brush begins, or, it may be just missing a tank. No way I can tell.
