    My iwata jet pro has been getting pretty hot when I spray over two hours(could smell it burning the first time), so I looked through the forum and found the thread tshirt shop compressor, so on the recommendation from Mr Micron and Airbrush Dreams I picked up this quite flow 10020sq with 10 gallon tank, since it was an impulse buy I didn't get anything else with it but did have the moisture trap from years ago, just put in a big order to Coast finally getting the grex and quick disconnects, new hoses, nozzles/needles, and bottles.
    Seems I always do things the hard way:whistling: hoping all this helps me out a bit. Next I'll be getting a new AB, only ever used the BCS and VL so far.

    Looks like a nice compressor. Specs aren't bad either. Good luck with your new equipment.

    I think you made a great impulse buy and this one should give you a lot of years of service.

    Awesome compressor. I love California Air Tools Compressors. That is a nice sized one.

    Good choice. So let's see some painting done with it now. It certainly won't get hot like your other one.

    Fired it up and it's nice and quiet, could probably use it in my apartment, it wasn't a bad price either under $300, a lot cheaper than the Dual Jet Pro, free shipping too, anxiously awaiting my Coast order to get it all together, sure I'll need to order something else before it's all said and done:laugh:

    I have some stuff coming, I'm still learning so prefer to just do a big art dump posts for right now. Trying to figure out where I belong in this AB world at the moment, was thinking t-shirt biz but have pulled away from that for the moment, right now I'm having fun spraying on all kinds of materials(have a bunch of scraps from working in signs over the years), also as an artist I'm going for a personal style that I'm been trying to find over the years, I think I'm starting to see something emerge, I can see my various influences but it's starting to look like mine if that makes sense:cool:

    Now I have to convince the gf to let me set up the jet pro in the living room somewhere:evil: seeing how she hates all my Godzilla(and tiki mugs/rat fink/ various other cool junk I have) I don't think it will go over to well:laugh:
