So, I've been kind of waffling on the idea of picking up an airbrush for a while now, and a friend of mine pointed me to a really good amazon.com sale for a Badger Sotar 2020-2F, which is apparently a superb air brush for miniatrue painting. Too good of a deal to pass up, so I ordered it, and it arrives in about 2 weeks. But here's the issue: I don't have an air compressor, and I need help finding one locally, or that can ship to Canada and isn't a super over inflated price. While amazon.com has some decent looking air compressors for decent prices, it looks like most of the ones with a tank won't ship to Canada. I can find the same ones on amazon.ca, but what would cost me $70 USD on amazon.com, costs $260 CAD on amazon.ca. I get that the currency exchange rate is pretty bad right now - but it's not THAT bad. So I need some help - Can I just use a 2gallon air compressor from the local Canadian Tire (hardware store) - They have one on sale for $50 currently. There's no moisture trap, and I have no idea what the pulsation is like, are these things that really matter? I'm mostly just going to be doing base coating, and maybe a little bit of shade work on bigger models (I've got a Narthrax on my desk right now). If I can't (or shouldn't) use a hardware store compressor - Where can I buy a usable compressor that'll ship to Canada without costing me an arm and a leg? Thanks! PS - asking for this kind of advice while respecting the no-linking-to-sales-sites rule is difficult (so, I've got this thing, from this place, and I was looking at this other thing, from this other place to go with it...) - hopefully answers are easier.
