This belonged to my grandfather. Its a small Campbell Hausfeld air compressor. It won't inflate car tires, but.probably bike tires. Curious if.anyone knows what model this might be. There are no other markings other than the make. Im thinking.it could.be usesd.for a small model airbrush compressor wih he proper attachments. The earmuffs are there so ou can see he size of the compressor.

Thanks

That looks to be a "diaphragm" type air compressor, the same type (but different appearance) that Binks, Badger, and Paasche still sell today. It works for airbrushing ,but doesn't have positive displacement (piston) that would allow it to fill a bike tire.

Yup, low pressure and low volume and works for an airbrush.

But....

GET IT OFF THE SLOT TRACK!

Sheesh!

Spent 19 bucks on a drain valve and a regulator, and wallah..a new airbrush compressor! It has a maximum of 25 psi, but has no auto shutoff. Works great!

Yup, it is very quiet. Figures, I bought a Harbor Freight mini airbrush compressor a month ago...never hurts to have too many tools I suppose.
