    I live in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. After a long career in tech I am now semi-retired which means that I'm busier than I've ever been! I have a small home-based laser engraving business and teach woodworking for a non-profit to women with multiple employment barriers as part of a pre-employment program . I am also an avid woodturner and dabble in electronics. I've recently started to get into airbrushing as a way to decorate woodturnings and laser-cut parts for other projects.

    The only airbrushing I've done so far is at a 2-day class on Airbrushing for Woodturners taught by Joe Fleming in early December. Been too busy with work, commissions and holiday partying to do much practice since then.

    Airbrushes:

    2 Iwata Eclipse CS's
    1 Iwata Neo CN - not used yet
    1 Aztec A470 with a crapload of tips and cups - not used yet

    Compressor:
    Testors AC200
    I have a couple of other real compressors in my woodshop and connected to my laser engraver.
