Wingnut, I do not know if you have already purchased an AB compressor.
The one I have has an water trap on my Airbrush compressor,s well as a pressure adjustment dial & valve.
I have both found very handy.

Have a moisture trap at both ends you can get small ones that fit at the bottom of the airbrush.

Also take into account the weather. The warmer it is the more moisture there is in the air. Also limit airbrush work to 30 minute sessions.

Hi guys, thank you all for your advice / help :D I do have do have a "trap" on my compressor, but I was thinking "belt and braces" for a couple of £ it can't be a bad thing, plus for me with my "gammy" hands one that fits between the brush and the line air feed would give me a better "grip" so it's a win win all round !
I have today received a "spray booth" I will post some pics anon.
Once again thanks Mark..Les..John..James (and the "Duke" :laughing-rolling: ;) ) for your advice it is much appreciated.
Cheers, Mike ;)
