Sorry that I don't have the model name or number on me (at work now) but I have a Badger compressor that I use that has no power switch so it must be plugged in to be on and unplugged to be off and doesn't have any visible way to adjust the pressure. Heres my questions though, even though I can't see a way to do it, can I adjust the device to lower the pressure? Silly question I know, but right now its all I have, can't afford one of the more high end compressors, and my camo work would be greatly improved if I could just get the pressure down.

Thanks

I'll only reply to one of these.

A lot of places will sell a combined moisture trap/pressure regulator for compressors. I don't know of one in the states, but these people do such a beastie in the UK.

If there is a store near you called Harbor Freight they sell a combination water trap, pressure regulator that might work for you. You connect it to the compressor the same where the hose connects, then you connect the hose to this device. If they don't have a store in your area you can search their site at http://www.harborfreight.com/
