I have had the same Badger compressor for about the last 100 years  ;D ;D. Since 1988 really. It is still going strong and has never missed a beat. Here is a link to Badger on line:

Good luck

I use it for small detail parts that I don't want to clog up with heavy paint from a can. I thin out the paint and give ti a few coats and the detail is preserved. Also, the spray pattern can be dialed dowh so that masking is unnecessary in some areas. It is good for reaching tight areas where a spray can would gob up and run. Definately a good tool for your shop.
