Default Help me find a moisture trap

Having a hard time finding a moisture trap...and am not really sure what size/style/price I should be looking for. Will something like this do the job?

http://cgi.ebay.com/Paasche-Moisture...3286.m20.l1116

If not... maybe a point in the right direction? THanks.

Second Question... Will this hose work? Will I be able to attach my airbrush hose/moisture trap to it?

#1 I use one similar to the above works well.

#2 As long as your airbrush hose is 1/4" on one end it should work.

Default moisture trap

I use a moisture trap purchased from Home Depot, similiar to the pic above. The hoses I've used have come from hobbie shops or Michaels or online. You'll probably need to reduce everything down to 1/4 to fit your air brush, and compressor. Home Depot carries the copper reducing parts as well.

+1

Get a trap that mounts near the compressor, prior to the hose. A second smaller trap, like the Iwata unit, can be installed at the brsuh, but for tight spaces inside rc bodies, they tend to get in the way.

Any place that sells compressors can sell you a trap:

Sears
Pep Boys
Home Depot
Lowe's
Harbor Freight
Menards
etc

Thanks Dave, and others... appreciated. I am however, out in the boonies and don't have regular access to places like this. I almost always have to order online. Home depot is an hour drive for me, so I usually only make it every once and a while.
