-- Air Compressor Options -- 

The AirGraver requires only  0.1 to 0.3 CFM depending on the depth of engraving or impact operation.  A small air compressor is all that is necessary.  When shopping for a small compressor make sure it is capable of at least 60PSI and has a tank of at least 1/3 gallon.  Campbell Hausfeld makes a  small one gallon compressor for $59.   Ace Hardware  compressor and several others.  Check your local hardware and discount stores.

For a very quiet compressor consider the Silentaire compressors listed below on this page.  They have a compressor in them similar to a refrigerator, and so they are very quiet.      

California Air Compressor
Price $123 when purchased with AirGraver

We no longer sell this California Air compressor. 
Similar to the Hausfeld compressors explained above many local hardware stores carry California Air compressors.  They do make more noise than the Silentaire compressors listed below on this page.
