Hey everybody I use the search function and all that I've been looking everywhere I want a compressor with a large tank capacity and with more horsepower than just one half horsepower is there anything like that even made? It seems like the biggest one I found has a small tank and only had a half horsepower power. I'm looking for something really big can anyone give me suggestions. PS I'll be using it for T-shirts so I'll be spraying around 60 psi. Would even like to hook up big gun up one of those industrial paint guns so I can just lay my top coat down real fast you know

Hi Jonathan, people turn up here, ask questions, and, well, you know... it's kinda awkward... we haven't even been introduced properly... :) Pop along to the introduction page here and say hi proper... that way we know a bit more about what you do, what you use, etc. Are you in Namibia, London, Antarctica, all these play an important part in our answer... :) First question, what is your budget, silent doesn't come cheap!
I've got 2 jun air compressors and they are great, the wife don't even complain about the noise there that quiet.
You could get a larger compressor and swap out the motor for fridge ones. It make take a couple of motors to keep up depending on the size, but do-able.
First off you could use something like my Santa mini guns to lay the base down . I use these on my little bam I silent compressor to base helmets even did a car bumper with no problems . The reason is that the new guns use max 10 psi at the tip regardless of the input ,the cam is around 3 cfm for these midi guns . Silent a costs though . I also use a turbine sprayer which I can spray anything with , unfortunately they don't make an airbrush to work on one yet ( sounds like a Hoover ) .
