What’s in the box?

When you order the Master Airbrush Model TC-828 you will receive a free 6 inch nylon braided airbrush hose with standard fittings (will also fit models manufactured by Iwata, Master, Harder and Steenbeck and Devilbiss), and a high quality air storage tank. Also included is the air regulator, gauge and water trap filter to insure that the air is clean, dry and moving at the speed you need it to. The unit is designed to be sleek and compact for use in studios, bakeries, workshops and other areas. The unit is also lightweight and easy to move with a tough built-in handle. The unit is designed to automatically begin working when you do. Air-on-Demand will give you the full capacity of air that you need and will turn off when you are no longer using it.


The air compressor provides 46 liters of airflow per minute allowing the user to run two airbrushes at one time. The double switch system is automatic. The compressor will turn on when the air pressure reaches below 43 PSI and will automatically shut off when 57 PSI is reached. This feature will save wear and tear on the motor and won’t allow moisture to build up due to heat. The second switch will allow the compressor to reach the maximum pressure of 85 PSI. There is also a safety valve that will release automatically letting out excess air pressure. If the unit begins to overheat it will turn off automatically.

One customer stated that the air isn’t always steady and his unit ran hot after 10 to 20 minutes of use. Problems were also noted with the regulator being on too tight causing it to turn upside down.
