  1. You'll be fine. The first compressor I owned was the TCP version of that compressor. I used it for 2 years before I switched, mainly for the better water removal and because a friend wanted to buy that one. (He needed a compressor, I was going to be travelling for 2 weeks, it worked) The alternative to a respirator is a spray booth. The one I have has a vent outside through a filter. A spray booth has the added advantage of paint not floating out in the room as dust As a note, I have a beard, respirators are of limited use...

    Sounds like an alien or elven building to me.
  3. I am no great expert but my experience says if you can get one with a reservoir take that one. it makes for dryer air and gives you a much more even pressure for the brush. Your compressor will also probably last longer. I also recommend getting a good water/oil separator to go on the outlet. Again, better quality air means a better consistency of spray from the airbrush. For reference, I use the TC-20T compressor from TCP global. I started with a master airbrush but moved pretty quickly up to a Badger Sotar as my go to brush with a patriot for doing fine work and a second Sotar for doing metallic paints because its a pain to clean all the fleck out of the brush when i switch paints.

    well. my plan was to do hobbying today. That was not to be. sump pump decided to fail on. only reason it has lasted as long as it did was because its been raining and yucky all week. got back from my trip and discovered the basement smelled of steam and electric magic smoke. The water in the pipe out from the pump was the temperature of hot tea. So off to the store for a new pump. And then an second trip to the store for the associated PVC pipes and fittings because the old stuff cracked when I tried to pull it apart. And then to get the lights in that room to work right... So, after the local hardware store gave me their Most Visits person award for the day. I got everything together and started it up. So far, no leaks. Maybe some hobbying this evening? Tomorrow is shot due to other engagements and packing for my next trip. I need a break from adulting. On a side note: apparently the locals have decided that there isn't much exciting news. Today's headline: "Local Town complains about rash of men braking cars." Stop signs are meant to be suggestions maybe?

    Still interested in the exchange, especially of holiday yummies! I get plenty of help in my house with consumption and they look forward to it!

    Now there is a restaurant I want to be at! Being there when the chef discovers that nutella can be used with a pastry bag! The possibilities are endless!

    Yes 'to keep in touch' (darn autocorrupt) have you tried the route of agreeing to disagree around lifestyles? My FIL and I get along by following specific rules in conversation and bearing. It's not always the best conversations but it does allow him to See his grandkids and for all of us to remain civil. It's not near the situation you are in but it might help. As an estranged grandson due to my father's and grandfather's disagreements, I find myself occasionally wishing I had the opportunity to spend time with him before he wasn't there anymore.

    Sorry for your troubles. Sometimes people just have to learn for themselves. I do recommend trying tonjeep in touglch though, even if it's around biker boy. There's a need to make sure your grandkids know its not them and that during the inevitable disaster your daughter knows she has a haven to run to. Isn't this a subset of 'not enough?' My bosses keep trying to schedule me for that (the call it managers training) however I have eluded them with carefully scheduled travel with the intention doing real work. On a side note Gabby, my bearded dragon has learned the art of baiting a trap. If her dinner finds a place she Can't reach or find, she will go get a piece of fruit or veg from her dish and then put it near where she thinks dinner is hiding. Then she will take 2 steps back and wait, still as stone. When dinner comes out to investigate the free lunch: snap! I think she's considering a career change to process equipment sales 'can I take you out to lunch? I have something to show you....'
