Buying a compressor is usually just a once- or twice-in-a lifetime occurrence, so it pays to do your homework. But if you want quality and value, why not consider Albion Alloys’ new Atomizer?
Let’s face it… a quality compressor is never cheap. A good rule of thumb – and this applies to items in and outside of our hobby – is you should always buy the best you can afford. With that in mind, if you are looking for a new compressor then the new Atomizer from Albion Alloys could be a wise choice.
Better known for its super-handy metal products for scratch-builders, and for importing kit brands such as Dora Wings and Amusing Hobby, Albion Alloys has been on the hunt for the right compressor for some time, and it refused to settle for anything it deemed below par.
Designed to offer high reliability and need little maintenance, the oil-free Atomizer offers features such as:
• Very quiet 1/8 hp motor (53 dBs noise level)
• Auto stop-start switch
• An air pressure gauge, and air regulator with push-pull locking
• Moisture valve with integral release valve
• Pressure delivery range from 0 to 80 psi
• UK plug as standard
• 6kg total weight
It comes in a sturdy metal case with carry handle, also has a small air reservoir to prevent 'pulsing' and can be used with all airbrushes, including the larger trigger-handle variety. At £150, it offers great value for money, and plenty of versatility. The Atomizer is available direct from: www.albionalloys.com
