    Hi all, thanks so much for the help so far.

    I've had a play around this am trying to make myself familiar with everything.

    I've got a ORAZIO compressor as pictured but how do I adjust the pressures, I keep reading I need something between 20 and 30 psi for createx wicked paints but ky compressor races up past the at level very quickly

    Thanks

    Best bet might be Machine Mart if you have one near to you. You could possibly try Screwfix or Tool Station too.

    And Screwfix

    Not sure which one is best and depends what size connector you have. Looks like a 1/4 bsp where the quick connect is screwed on. You may need a reducer/adapter to fit the thread size. At the most I would say you probably will need the connectors to fit the regulator to the compressor and then the quick connect to the regulator. It's easier to see it than to explain.

    Work from the right hand side depending on what you need. The regulators from both places have a 1/2 inch bsp fitting so you will need a reducer to connect it the the 1/4 inch bsp fitting on the compressor. What you want to do on the other side of the regulator is your choice.
