May I suggest you put your location in your Chaski profile? If people know whereabouts you live they can perhaps offer better suggestions. :)

As for oil-less compressors, you couldn't give me one. I've seen a lot of them fail with only a few hundred hours of service on them. My Speedaire two-stage compressor pump, which is a conventional "wet" reciprocating unit, has 35 years of service on it and is still going strong, despite the cutoff pressure being set to 160 PSI.

I'm using a two cylinder compressor my dad put together after the war. Can't recall the make of the piston block, but it uses a surplus, stainless, B-29 oxygen tank for storage. Plenty of output, I use it with a Binks 11.5 CFM spray gun.

As you don't live in America, you should be looking at compressors made and sold in Europe
