Default Wife says no air compressor in the loft of the house

Could I use a 10 gal portable air tank I found one that says 165 psi?
Would it last very long powering a classic?
Or would I be be better off with a pant ball canester
Planning on getting a classic airgraver soon and have to figure things out
Thanks

Hi, Yes the portable air tank will work. I don't know how long 10 gallons will last but I'd guess with the PalmControl 8 to 16 hours?? It would depend what you are doing.. cutting deep cuts or doing tiny shading.

Why don't make it yourself? My air compressor is as silent as refrigerator in your kitchen. Old refrigerator compressor and air tank are usually free on junkyard. I only paid for air gauges. I assemble all of them easily by help of electrician. I am able to work all night without disturbing the neighbors in my flat. Its power is enough for Lindsay air graver. I listen music when I work and even don't hear that my compressor is working.

Sinan, if you put a small fan blowing on the compressor it will keep it from overloading with continuous use. If you want phenomenal cosmic power run two compressors into a larger tank. Still super quiet. Great set up you have and saved $$$$$.
