As an update, I just received an email back from badger about the airbrush I received from my friend. Suprisingly after asking about a replacement airbrush they sent me step by step instructions to taking apart, cleaning, and reassembling the airbrush for use on cakes even after being used for nail decorting. I would have thought they would want to make more money by selling me a new airbrush. So my advice for anyone who has a used airbrush would be to contact the manufacturer on possible cleaning before buying anything new.
Hello. I just received my Aztek a4709 and my compressor. I got the 40 PSI from harbour freight that everyone in talking about. This is supposed to connect with no other adapter but for some reason I am having trouble. I cant figure out what attaches to the airbrush. It doesnt want to press on OR screw on. Maybe I am just doing something wrong here. Airbrush newbie needs help asap PLEASE!

I just want to add my thanks to to this thread. Though it is old it has been most helpful and confirmed my decision to purchase an airbrush and compressor. I went with the Harbor Freight Central Pneumatic oilless airbrush compressor and it works perfectly for my airbrush. I went with the Iwata brand purchased from my local art supply store. Not a lot of noise with the compressor, it fills to the desired PSI, cuts off and holds it position quite well without kicking back on.
Now to get more practice - I see some free cakes in my friend's futures. :)
This is the one I have and I was very new to airbrushing and cakes, but I love mine!!!! I use the pen in the middle I believe its the G22 alot....I find it easy to work with and this is where I got it also:
