I've used the Sparmax AC 100 for almost 4 years now without any problem. It works great. :bigthumb:

I also have had the AC100 for a few years now.
It works great and is quite silent (as it is mounted on rubber feet, it doesn't transmit any vibration to the floor).

The only problem I have had is with the water filter : when painting more than 7-8 minutes in very humid weather, this filter is not sufficient and I get some water "bubbles" in my paint. :confused:

I use the baby compressor too and it is working great for me. Very silent and so far no problems with overheating.

This is how that model works..

The compressor fills the tank with the air and the compressor auto stops...

When it detects the certain level of air in the tank, it starts again by filling it up.

It is not neccessary to buy such an expensive compressor..

You have to look into what you are doing and how long you are doing..

I have ever tried using the baby compressor for an hr and have no probelms with it..

Parts are not so difficult to get as there is an agent here in Singapore..

AC55 is the model and price is $180 Sing dollars.

As for airbrush, I am using the sparmax DH-125. It retails for $150 Sing dollars. Comes in a nice case with siphon cups, side 7cc cup and some other accessories.
Great to use but you need to learn how to clean the insides. Once you do, its a breeze.
