Questions & Answers

Is it strong enough to air up a car tire? And about how many it will do before its empty

Asked by: Ced
Yes, but frustratingly slow due to small tank capacity. To me, this tank is so small, the compressor is nearly worthless.

Would this be suitable for hobby airbrushing?

I'm in the market for a new compressor/tank set up. I paint things like model airplanes, cars, and tanks. VS an expensive specialized compressor would this be suitable for what I need? If not then do you offer any products that would?

This little air compressor is perfect for airbrushing models.

Does this model have a regulator for use with an airbrush?

Asked by: ChrisAnthony
It has a regulator with a quick coupler. You might need something like this to connect your air brush. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Primefit-1-4-in-Industrial-Steel-Plug-Set-with-1-4-in-Female-NPT-2-Piece-IP1414FS-2/205149478 Or you might be able to unscrew the quick coupler and screw in your air brush hose if its 1/4 and wrapped with thread tape..

Asked by: Airbrush
I think it would be perfect for an airbrush.

1.0 Gal. Light and Quiet Steel Tank Electric Portable Air Compressor is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 185.

Too small to be much good for most household uses, such as inflating tires, blowing dust off items, etc. The tank is so small you get a burst of air for what seems like 10-20 seconds, and then the tank is empty and it must kick on to refill. If you want strong air pressure, you will have to wait for the tank to refill, which isn't long, but significantly longer than the blow time. So, there winds up being a lot more waiting than working. Lightweight, compact, quiet, and seems to be decent quality, though.

Just bought this, so I haven't really used it yet, so this is a first impression review. I ordered this online and picked it up at the store. Was packed well and came with no damage. I did run it and it filled the one gallon tank in less than a minute, up to around 115 lbs., where it cut off automatically, it restarts at 90 lbs. I plan on using this mainly for tires, an airgun and a staple gun. It is light enough to be carried anywhere you would need it. I am impressed on how quiet it is. I ran it in our living room and could talk over it easily without yelling, as opposed to a brand my son-in-law has. With it running you have to talk rather loudly and that is outside. I was concerned with it being oil-less as to the longevity, but the manufacturer says it it rated at 3000 hours before servicing is needed. It does not come with any accessories (hose, etc.) which for me is a good thing, since what I paying for is for the compressor, not added accessories, which you can get better quality by getting separately anyway. After I have used this for a while I will come back a update this review.

I really like the design of this compressor, and the operation is indeed quiet enough to hold a normal conversation sitting next to it while running. My issues were with quality control. I purchased two of these in as many weeks. The first one had a faulty output regulator and the top pressure switch assembly was not snugly threaded onto the tank riser, causing a fairly rapid discharge of the tank without any use. The output regulator would drop a good 30 psi during use, compared to around 5 psi for a properly functioning regulator. After returning in-store and ordering another one, I received the second only to discover about a teaspoon of tiny steel balls rolling around in the tank. The regulator functioned with a blow gun as compared to the previous unit, but I returned it rather than risk damage to my tools. I spoke to California Air Tools and they were very nice (and seemed shocked at my run of bad luck), but I'm going to have to call it quits with this particular model. Overall: +Good Design; +Good Customer Service; +Quiet Operation; -Poor Quality Control

I have no problems running brad nailers and pinners with it on jobsites and I have also run airbrushes and small touchup paint sprayers with it. It is lightweight and incredibly portable. The motor is incredibly quiet and makes it very easy to use indoors without disturbing anyone. I use it in my shop when I need to use a nailer for a quick job, or inflate a tire, beachball, basketball, etc.and my main compressor isn't charged. This unit is ready in less than a minute. I had heard a lot of good things about California Air Tools. Now I know first hand that this is a quality tool that will be part of my collection for a long time to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The key word here is quiet. Matter of fact... The key word here is quiet. Matter of fact this thing is almost silent, and that was important to me. .It seems well built and the big bore/short stroke/slow turning compressor is impressive. Air supply is limited though... any use triggers the compressor and it is almost constantly running with almost any kind of useage. I think I should have bought a larger version of this unit. The tiny tank just doesn't have hardly any reserve at all. I should have considered that and if I do decide to replace this unit it will be with a bigger version of the very same thing.

Intructions for set up were clear and easy to understand. A bit of a search to find out which way to attach the moisture trap. required a short trip to ace for fittings. Meets or exceeds all expectations. Can definately hold a conversation in normal tones while running. Use it for airbrushing. Beat all others I have looked at. Great for use in apartment with the low noise and vibration. Would recommend it to all who want an outstanding compressor for airbrushing.
