If you're looking at compressors, I use an SGS compressor to drive an air hammer for my stone work. They do a range with gravity feed paint and oil sprays. I can't comment on the quality of those as I don't use them but the compressor and associated fittings I use are superb. Mine's a 50L but I am sure the smaller model would do for this https://www.sgs-engineering.com/air-compressors/semi-pro-diy/sc6h-6-litre-oil-less-air-compressor-tool-kit

That said a hand powered gun like the one above is surely sufficient.

Thanks guys for the info. I too have the SGS 50ltr compressor but in fairness the Clark's, and all the others are all from the same source for the most part, just rebranded.

I've a pretty comprehensive air tool kit now and much prefer using air power over mains (and my Makita battery power tools when necessary), and can't be ar$ed with pumping up bottles etc...

I'll try one of the cheapo spray guns first and just take a punt as let's be honest, we're not building watches just throwing some grease on a bike!  :008:

Got the Flairosols this afternoon and tried with water only atm but the misting is very fine. I also tried the ACF50 buddy bottle with water and that was better than I expected it to be, but yeah the Flairosol is better at misting than the ACF50 buddy bottle no question.
