I hope someone can please help me. I have a Galaxy compressor #A111 and an Aztek airbrush A4709, purchased from bearair. The airbrush pen and the hose that came with the compressor are not compatible, and the hose on the compressor is the one with the filter icon_cry.gif

I just called bearair and he said you'll have to go to your local plumbing store......well *&^(*&^*& I live in a rural town that doesn't have a plumbing store, I am so mad. I bought both products from them, shouldn't they know what I need???? sorry, but I'm so frustrated, if anyone can help, thank you thankyou thank you!

My friend got an adapter from Roland Winbeckler to attach the aztek 4709 to the kopykake compressor so he might be able to help to. Go to his website and contact him. HTH

I got adapters at my Hobby Lobby store. I realize that you live in Bittysville and may not have one, but maybe there is one close by.

tonimarie, do you have a local hardware store. Maybe you could take your equipment in to them, and they could fix you up. Or possibly a local craft or hobby shop.

You may have to contact Rolland and tell him what you are looking for.

okay icon_redface.gif when all else fails ask the hubby.....I didn't tell him I bought it- I thought what he doesn't know won't hurt him icon_lol.gif so anyway this morning I drug it out and asked for help and I had one hose turned the wrong way, and I didn't actually need the hose that came with the compressor, just the airbrush hose, and I searched through the box again and there was another fitting that worked once I was using the right end of the hose. icon_redface.gif so anyway hubby didn't even ask what is was for....think he knows my obsession with cakes !!

so I played with it for several hours this morning and oh my goodness...it is SO much fun, I just got through doing a sunset on the top of a cake and now I'm going to find a siloutte of an elk to airbrush on with black.
