A 24Ltr Air compressor with hose. It was originally £100 down to £80 and spotted instore at £60.

Nice bargain.

Just be aware there is a review that say it doesn't have a hose with it despite advertising. Worth noting if you are torn between this one a the Aldi one.

The Aldi one for £69.99 (on-line) is a MUCH better buy even without hose etc.

Thanks, any links??
Checked with Hubby who has the Aldi one "Very Impressed"
Any more opinion on the Aldi one? I would like to buy a compressor for occasional use soon.
The Aldi one is a far better machine. The B&Q machine will be more noisy/produce less air and wear out faster (it has a small motor , much like a electric drill, which is not direct drive but geared via a pulley/belt. The motor is brushed and they have to be changed at the first sign of the motor starting to spark... Not easy and not readily available). The Aldi one you just have to be careful not to tip it over and lose the oil (keep an eye on the oil level), it also has a proper pressure switch (unlike the other one which will have a small hole drilled in the side of the barrel to vent/waste air).
As a rule of thumb you should get approx' 3 cfm of free air delivery per Hp of motor power. Just check any tool you want to use from it does not require more (and double the figure if it states average air consumption).

I have an older Aldi one that had a faulty dial on unpacking. One phone call and a new dial was sent to me from Germany inside 2 days. Aldi customer service won through. The compressor has been working slavishly without fault for over 3 years now. Can’t comment on B&Q though.
Not much knowledge about these compressed air tanks if someone would car to educate me. Are they refillable? Looking at airbrushing

The way i understand it works is the tank is the area the air is compressed into and stores, the motor above does the compressing, so you get an infinite amount of compressed air, and as long as the flow of air isn't too high the air will constantly be pumped without stop,l. However if you decide to use a high flowing spray gun ( usually for spraying cars but not all check CFM rate verses compressor) it will lag and the air flow will fluctuate.
But for air brushing you should be fine. And no you won't have to refill as it does that itself. But be aware, it will make a noise to refill, i think this is 93db.

For airbrushing I would recommend you go for an oil free compressor... This eliminates any chance of oil contamination from the air being supplied. Also use an inline water seperator for similar reasons.
Can anyone recommend a smaller electric powered air compressor, that you can attach a hose/nozzle to?
Something similar in size to a car tyre air compressor/pump, that attaches to the cigarette lighter socket.
I'd like to dry off a bike and chain with it.

Thank you.

usually use diaphragm compressors for air brushing, as mentioned above, no oil contamination.

I was just about to purchase a Clarke compressor for £132 and then saw your comment. It nearly looks identical so you have saved me £60!
Thanks chaps for the info greatly appreciate it
