Hi everyone. Just signed-up to ask a question about threads in use by various manufacturers. My name is Phil and I use my airbrush to finish my woodworking projects. For small projects I might shoot the entire thing with an airbrush, for larger projects I might just shoot inside corners and other difficult locations, and roll/brush the rest. I use a Badger 250-4 airbrush, which is a higher volume siphon type with a 4-Oz. jar. My current and new-to-me air compressor is an Air-Force AF33-4. It is very much like an ancient version of a Silentaire 50-TC. I think these are about 35 years old! It is an oldie but a goodie. I got it on eBay for $109 shipped, and it was in sad shape. The unit had polyurethane glue dripped on it, the pressure switch cover was broken in two spots and covered in glue, the oil looked to be old/unchanged for some time, the plug's ground was loose, and there were other issues. I got the glue cleaned off the painted surfaces, I ordered a $15 pressure switch from eBay and swapped the cover over, I got the oil changed with the right 10W synthetic stuff, I polished-up the chrome finish, I installed a new gauge (stock gauge was defective), moved the regulator to a beam by my workbench, and then went to put a new plug on it when I discovered the wiring to the pressure switch and from the pressure switch to the pump was all bad. The insulation on the inner conductors was dried and easily cracked. I think it would have been fine it I didn't disturb it. But I decided to swap it all out. Luckily the wiring from the pump's terminal block to the pump itself was all good! I picked-up some SJOOW in 16/3 and replaced all the wiring. I used it for about 1-1/2 hours yesterday and it was a champ. I've come here to ask a question about thread sizes because I wanted to adapt a small air blow gun from my old compressor to the 1/8" quick disconnect on my airbrush hose. I figured the answer out myself a while after posting that thread, and I'll go update it now. My hope in joining this forum is to learn from others about better ways to use the gear I have now, better ways to thin, I'd be interested in learning about ways to achieve textures with paints, etc. If possible. I'll probably spend most of my time just reading what you guys share, as I don't really have much to offer at this point. ANYWAY, here is a pic of my "new" compressor. The label still needs to be cleaned-up but I'm researching ways to do that w/o ruining it. Thanks for hosting this site!
