    Another newbie here. I have an old Mecafer shop Compressor which I want to hook up to a new airbrush, probably a Paasche Talon. It makes a hell of a racket but it’s all I can get down here as shipping a airbrush specific one from the U.K. would be prohibitively expensive.
    Do I need to use a moisture trap with it? And would a hose in-line one work ok?
    Thanks.

    I would go for both a water/ moisture trap on the compressor and a inline one on the airbrush
    ilzeairbrushing and John Hughes like this.
