  • air brush advice

    I want to buy an air brush for my other wood projects, and now for my scroll saw "treasures". Does anyone have a recommendation for the make, size etc.? There are so many out there, I don't know where to start. Thanks!

    Hi Victoria

    A good starting place would be to search against "airbrush" using this forum's search facility . You should find quite a bit of good advice.

      I have not used it on my scroll saw projects, but I use a "Critter" spray gun for my toys and things. I am "air challanged" as I only have a pancake compressor and the Critter works very well with it. It is not a spray gun per se, but a grown up air brush. I use it primarily with latex paint and it works as advertised.

          If all that you are going to do is stain/finish your woodworking projects, then you don't need the expensive brushes that airbrush artists use. To stain/finish small pieces, I would get the absolute cheapest airbrush I could find. Also, for such small jobs you probably could get by with using canned propellent rather than springing for an air compressor. For that matter, you could probably get by with canned stain and propellent. However, if you want to really try it---

          The cheapest I've ever seen:

          Propellent:

          Others:

          And if you want to see why you probably don't need all of the bells and whistles that an airbrush artist uses, browse here in 'airbrush art':
