    Good morning all. I am going to be doing some painting on the layout, and don,t want to keep buying the cans of compressed air. What is a good inexpensive compressor, or any other ideas? I have seen tanks for filling bike tires that can be refilled not sure how to control the pressure. Thanks Paul

    MasonJar It's not rocket surgery

    You can get what my neighbour calls a "pig". It is basically a tank without the compressor. Use the gas station compressor to fill it. You will need a regulator to regulate (;)) the pressure coming out. Also having a moisture trap might not be such a bad idea.

    However, you should be able to find a decent compressor witha 2 gallon tank at any Home Depot or similar store. You can also run handy tools for around the house with it - stapler, nail/brad gun, and so on. :D
