Depends on the condition....what airbrush it has, how many paints really. For instance, brand new models with an airbrush as shown in the first link, come in at about £250

Whilst you can pick up an secondhand older model on ebay for less than £50...then add the bits you want

sim air compresser tc 2000 on eBay, also, Air Tools Compressors, Garage Equipment Tools, Cars, Parts Vehicles (end time 10-Dec-07 14:07:48 GMT)

My honest rule of thumb when it comes to compressors and the like is, if you know where its coming from and can be sure of the condition, then secondhand is probably OK, and dependant on what your getting with it....£70 isn't bad (not a fantastic deal but not bad), but I personally wouldn't give myself the headache that could come with an old model that you have no history for.

Likewise, it depends on your requirements...if you are looking for something to play with, get used to, and see how you you get on before investing a lot of money in new, then its not a bad idea, but I wouldn't be buying something that was business critical that is secondhand and you are not assured of the condition.

Hi, I used to use a sim air compressor, I'm not into salons nails or anything I was a graphic artist, I would say that the most important thing is that you need a compressor with a tank, so you get a constant airflow, if you just have a piston or even 2, you will get a pulse in the flow andf you do not want that on intricate work, my sim air was one with a tank but I don't knaw obout the tc 2000, pitty I just sold mine on ebay for £35 but it was 25 years old but still in perfect working order, so they are a good make
