Re: Pressure regulators for airbrushing

Ben,

While Chuck may have overstated the pressure by about 3 fold, the internal pressure of the tank and therefore the pressure seen on the high pressure side of the regulator is about 800-1100 psi… So his point about buying cheap equipment is well made.  In addition, those cheaper regulators are more likely to blow out their diaphragms, which, if it happens while connected to an airbrush could indeed make a serious mess out of a steam era freight car!

Regards

Bruce

You must have some serious premature drying issues if you're using 3000 psi HP air.  Plus it must beat up the models pretty bad.  [/sarcasm]
