Hi,

You should get one with a tank. Small tankless compressors have a tendency to pulse and might be a problem with the Airgraver idle and smooth operation.

check out steves engraving tools listed compressors.

Hi Mrthe,

I have the same one. I bought it to lend out to people who don't have one.
It has a small tank of 3 liters to store the pressure in.
Its a bit on the loud side, but if you take off the casing its a lot quieter.
Sootable for al lindsay work and a cheap start but you will want something better eventually.
I worked with something similar for more than 2 years though.
Good stuff for a tight budget. Look a bit longer for this one, mine only cost me 90,-.
Airamp is right, don't go for the ones without tank.
