    Hello friends,

    Have any of you tried Spraygunner's No-Name Skyline compressor?

    It's got a tank and goes up to 43psi, but is small, which I think would be nice for someone such as myself who is working in a shoebox apartment in the kind of city where square footage is priced in terms of how many organs you will have to donate to afford it.

    Are these reliable? What are you thoughts on them?

    The video claims 30psi working pressure with a .3 needle so it should be fine unless you’re planning on shooting metallics/pearls or doing t-shirts
    Spray gunner has a great reputation around here, I’m a happy customer from the opposite side of the globe :)

    Hm, I would like to shoot pearls. I have oceans of cosmetic grade mica samples that would be fun to experiment with.

    Ugh, it's so hard to find something that is small but strong :( Apartment living sucks...

    Do your mica’s have a recommended psi for airbrush ? Their website may have some additional details

    For your requirements only 2 piston type with the tank would work, the one in the link is just ridiculous for any serious work.
    In your area California Air is good inexpensive choice, or if you're on budget buy that no name 2 piston with the black tank.
    Here on the forum some members use CA compressors and there are reviews on them.

    No, not at all, it's for making eyeshadow, etc. But mica is mica, so I think it oughta work? Particle size distribution is 80% within 10-150 um, more or less. For what it's worth, I was able to spray Green Stuff World's Chameleon Paints without trouble and did this (my first piece!).

    Vladimir, oh dear :( My primary concern is Where Will I Store It? followed by Will The Neighbours Hear? so size is very much something I pay attention to (you can even say that size matters :laugh:). The problem is that they all get very massive very fast. I just don't have the space :\

    The California Air 1p1060sp looks interesting...

    These models don't require much space to store, you think they eat much of your space, but they don't. You can put it under your chair, table etc. Don't say you're not going to use either chair or table:D
    I had one similar to those on this page https://tcpglobal.com/collections/airbrush-compressors-master-airbrush
    It was like ABD TC-828, but with piston arrangement like on MAS TC-96T.
    If your walls aren't made out of paper, the neighbors are not going to hear this type working:)
    These two models you can consider when making your choice.
    Size matters? Yes! Especially, when you are in front of choice of tool that will do your job or not;)

    I am with Vladimir on this , a small compressor with a small air tank will run hot in no time if you really want a low noise compressor that wont take up much space and will last a long time check out the compressors with the fridge like motor these are not cheap you can hardly hear those run
