Hey all.
I'm looking into getting a bigger compressor with an air tank, does anyone have one their selling at a really good price or know we're to get one really cheap?
Not got a massive budget due to the normal expenses.

Compared to years back, the big-box stores are selling common, household named compressors (Campbell-Hausfeld or ROK) for incredibly low prices. Here, you can get a 1gal compressor for the price of an average model. Just keep your eye on the flyers.
I,m using a twin tank ROK that I picked up new for less than $100cdn.

Are you in the UK?
You can get model dedicated 'silent' compressors with tanks on ebay shipped for about £60 which is decent but if noise isn't a problem you can pick up small garage type compressors with tanks for about the same, maybe a little less but they are loud when pumping, the advantage is the tanks will be way bigger than a hobby one and it won't fire up as often to refill.
