Nice feature. Thanks Matt and Scott.

This is why I love KitMaker... I learn something new every day! I never knew about the compressed gas and tank options in so far as airbrush/spray gun propellant.

Thanks again guys

It was actually a Fun one to Write. I do need to take a updated pic of Grumpy's "Old Faithful" that A gave another life too!!!

Now, I know some might be asking.... Paintball tanks.......... I didn't cover them in the article as they're not Widely used. However I'd be weilling to say that they can be used as a Power source as well. it'd just be a matter of getting the Correct fittings and a Regulator for the CO2 or Nitrogen. I honestly don't have an Idea as to the "life" a 7,9 or 20 oz Paintball tank.

I tried to cover the Most commonly used "propellents"

Obviously I didn't cover any of the "industrial" type compressors like the Rotary Screw, Centrifugal & Axial varietys (they kind my employer builds on a very LARGE scale)

Any other Questions... feel free to ask.
