I bought a Powermate VP201 compressor at a garage sale to use for my airbrush. I am trying to determine how to connect my Paasche air brush hose to the compressor since none of the connectors seem to fit.

Hi Jim…

You have a couple of options, but the simplest would be to remove the discharge coupler from the discharge line of the air compressor, and replace it with the Paasche connector, which has a unique footprint for their products.

If you do a search for Paasche quick connects, or connectors as I just did, you will find a host of sources.

I have been fooling around with airbrushing for about 1 1/2 years.

I don’t know how long that you have been doing this but here is a site to go to. They will answer any question that you have about this type of stuff and just about anything else on this subject.


Best of luck
Thanks Ron,
