Default Re: Air compressor alternatives

Easiest and quite and available is a 20 cf CO2 tank.
You do need a CO2 regulator on the tank to take the pressure down from 600psi to about 80psi. Then the 2nd regulator to fine tune your graver.

It should last quite long since it is compressed to a liquid and changes to a gas when released.

Not as high a pressure in the tank as with Nitrogen or scuba tanks and can be filled at almost any welding shop supply. So it is much safer.
Always chain a tank in place so it doesn't fall over on the valve...
