This was just in time for me in deciding which compressor to get. I also have some dish towels waiting to practice on before I actually stencil the fabric I bought from AC. I was wondering if it is easy to figure out the adaptors needed. And where did you find the paint? Your towel turned out beautiful.

oceansong - I'm sorry I didn't see your comment immediately, but I'll answer anyway. Finding the right adapter was trial and error, just taking my equipment into an old fashioned hardware store and getting help from a clerk who had a pretty good eye for what might work to connect the braided hose to the Harbor Freight compressor. I think it was easier because I got the braided hose - the little plastic hose didn't look like it would connect to anything other than a Badger machine. I got my Createx paint locally, at Artists and Craftsman Supply (which has a few outlets elsewhere in the country).

Where did you buy the Createx paint?

I'm in Texas and can't find the bottles of Createx big enough, let alone finding all the colors.

Artist & Craftsman Supply, a local store. I think it also sells online as does Blick Art.
