Compressors for the Air Chasing Graver
User Feedback about the Air Graver
A small and inexpensive air compressor that my be used with the Air
Chasing Graver is the Campbell Hausfeld model FP2003. It is sold through
Wal-Mart and Harbor Frieght for $99. It will keep up with the Air Chasing Graver,
kicking on about every 5-7 minutes while engraving.

Wal-Mart also carries this compressor. Generally any compressor with
a tank will work with the Air Chasing Graver, although a compressor smaller than this
Campbell Hausfeld Model FP2003 is not recommend. You may want to go with a larger
one if you plan to use the compressor for other things besides the Air Chasing Graver.
A compressor with a larger tank will not have to charge/fill up as often during
use. The main compressor Steve Lindsay uses is a larger upright compressor (240V).
It will fill the large tank in 10-15 minutes and from this one fill it is possible
to engrave12 to16 hours before it runs out of enough air to operate the Air Chasing
Graver. This large of compressor is not necessary for the Air Chasing Graver but it
is nice if needed for operating larger tools also.
For a quiet compressor no louder than a refrigorator, SILENTAIRE Sil-Air makes
a nice compressor.
