    Jan-Air, they have a ton of models.

    The one I bought has auto-drain and desiccant for drying the air. I put a lubricator in-line where needed and a regulator at each tool.

    I run the Maka and my vacuum press on a Jun-Air that I bought after David Kumm suggested it to me. It's fantastic, so quiet that I really don't know its running.
