  1. Very close to what I ended up getting: I got a set that came with the .7mm needle, hose, air regulator, and a 125ml cup (although with the amounts I do, I would have preferred the 50 ml cup) https://spraygunner.com/grex-tritium-tg-micro-spray-gun-set-with-0-7mm-nozzle/ , this compressor https://www.homedepot.com/p/California-Air-Tools-10-Gal-2-0-HP-Ultra-Quiet-and-Oil-Free-Electric-Air-Compressor-10020C/206644539 (in case I ever buy a spray gun, might not be quiet large enough, but will do), a moisture trap, and a set of natural cocoa butters from ChefRubber (not flavored - same as zen, but without the shimmer) I'm going to start with a cardboard box for spraying, but hope to upgrade to the CakeSafe booth by Christmas (if I like spraying things)) - mostly for the sake of all the super expensive appliances in my kitchen and my cats))
  2. Is the below same as Henkelman, just rebranded? I'm having trouble finding Neo 42 for sale in the US. https://www.katom.com/027-OROSHI16.html
  3. Only because of the size? I haven't seen this model before, but really like how it looks compared to their other machines.
  4. I like that's it's smaller, deep enough for larger jars, and will match my commercial blendtec nicely)). (They would be sitting side by side) But I'm worried that it's not wide enough, and the longer items will have to be on their side when inside the chamber...My other choice is the Wolf vacuum seal drawer, but it would need to have some type of a wood cage built to use before it's actually built in during the kitchen remodel (which won't happen for a few years)....
  5. That's what I've been using, a large cardboard box, for spraying entrements with martellato velvet spray in a can so far.
  6. I also have Kerry's EZTemper)), but I don't have a basement, so kitchen clean up it is for me.... I'd love to do more per month and sell them as a hobby, but I can't do that legally from home as I have two cats which the state considers pests....I've considered renting space in a shared kitchen type of place, but that is a bit too much with my level of knowledge and a full-time job, at this point.
  7. I have this melter https://www.tcfsales.com/products/248-chocolate-melter-6kg-mol-dart/ and a heat gun. Would the melter work or would it heat the gun disproportionately on one side? If so, I can always put it on a towel in the oven on proof setting with the air circulating to heat it evenly... I like the idea of using a plastic heat pad, as in one of the Grex videos, but all the ones I've been able to find are covered in cloth.
  8. So, not much clean up of the are surrounding, just the booth itself? Having to clean the whole kitchen after spraying a couple of molds seems a bit too much... Wish their last coupon was still active, too impatient to wait for a new one(
  9. BTW, for anybody interested in the difference between a .5mm and .7mm needle on Grex, here's a useful video.
  10. Okay, got this set up for the airbrush https://spraygunner.com/grex-tritium-tg-micro-spray-gun-set-with-0-7mm-nozzle/, a moisture trap, and am now trying to decide between these two compressors: https://www.homedepot.com/p/California-Air-Tools-10-Gal-2-0-HP-Ultra-Quiet-and-Oil-Free-Electric-Air-Compressor-10020C/206644539 and https://www.lowes.com/pd/DEWALT-15-Gallon-Single-Stage-Portable-Electric-Vertical-Air-Compressor/1058157 . Husband is going to pick up the necessary connectors once everything arrives and he checks his garage inventory. Thank you so much for all the help! I'm sure I'll be back once everything arrives and I actually try to use it)). Jim, are you still very satisfied with the CakeSafe spraying booth? Does one still wear a mask and has to clean up the are around after spraying?
  11. Q&As on Lowes recommend at least a 30 gallon for HLVP - maybe it's for longer painting than just molds
  12. Would the compressor you mention (the one on amazon) be enough for a spray gun? In one of the posts in this thread you mention it should be at least 13 gallons for a spray gun, which is why I was looking at the larger capacity ones.
  13. Air brush https://www.amazon.com/Tritium-TG-Gravity-Piston-Trigger-SprayGunner/dp/B07XF8QCZG/ref=asc_df_B07XF8QCZG/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=385339539041&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=4784383194043475620&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9060248&hvtargid=pla-826417404411&psc=1&tag=&ref=&adgrpid=81510837554&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvadid=385339539041&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=4784383194043475620&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9060248&hvtargid=pla-826417404411 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B002XQ2K5W/?coliid=I344P1GFT0676E&colid=3HL56SQONPWSP&psc=1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it
  14. Or, if the compressors above aren't powerful/large enough for a a good spray gun, how about this one? https://www.homedepot.com/p/California-Air-Tools-20-Gal-2-0-HP-Ultra-Quiet-and-Oil-Free-Electric-Air-Compressor-20020/312624543
  15. Does the compressor have to be oilless? For some reason I have it in my hand that it was recommended in this thread that the compressor be oilless... So, I need the Grex Tritium airbrush, the .7mm needle conversion kit, a larger cup, a moisture trap, hose, all the required connectors, and which of the below compressors would work very well if I choose to upgrade to a spray gun down the road? https://www.homedepot.com/p/California-Air-Tools-10-Gal-2-0-HP-Ultra-Quiet-and-Oil-Free-Electric-Air-Compressor-10020C/206644539 https://www.homedepot.com/p/Husky-20-Gal-Vertical-Electric-Powered-Silent-Air-Compressor-3332013/311273546 https://www.homedepot.com/p/California-Air-Tools-8-0-Gal-1-0-HP-Aluminum-Air-Tank-Ultra-Quiet-and-Oil-Free-Portable-Electric-Lightweight-Air-Compressor-8010A/309826554
  16. Sorry, I meant an online course by Andrey Kanakin in partnership with Vladislav Pancha. Got Andreys mixed-up.
  17. At this point I've discovered that I might not do with choices so well). I've been trying to decide on a chamber vacuum for two months now, and even with pressure from hubs to make a choice in time for my birthday, I still can't make up my mind)). So, I really wouldn't mind paying for a kit just to avoid making all the selections)). I'm almost ready to pay for an online class on bonbon decorating with Chef Dubovik just so I can learn about his set up in detail)). Thank you for your advice, I will search for the videos you mentioned. If an airbrush can do velveting with success, that will definitely make choosing easier.
  18. Will the airbrush be able to do velveting? Chef Rubber CS told my yesterday that it should handle it with no problem. Are there any places that sell kits for chocolatiers? The idea of finding all the connectors, moisture traps, etc. is daunting What is the difference between a gravity and suction cups for cocoa butter spraying?
  19. Yay, they were able to cancel the airbrush kit part of my order! Even though the cs yesterday said it would be shipped same day... I really need a specific recommendation on a super quiet compressor that can easily handle a spray gun if I choose to upgrade in the future, and an excellent air brush that can spray the 50/50 choc mixture for velveting. I just want to finally have it and forget the pain of choosing one... Price isn't as much of an issue, as easy of use and best tool for the job. The reason I ultimately gave up on the idea of Fuji, were all the reviews that mentioned so much overspray and inability for finer detail
  20. It still doesn't show as shipped, I might be able to cancel it.
  21. No, please tell me the whole terrible truth, better to know than to stay in blissful ignorance ...the compressor is nowhere near worth its money, I won't be able to spray chocolate mix with this, and the compressor won't handle an actual spray gun to assist in spraying the choc mix? Yes, I do realize that, but considering just HOW MUCH chocolate I eat...the color might accumulate rather fast)))
  22. Accordign to chef rubber CS, the Zen line is their natural colors + shimmer.
  23. Yes, the purchase has been paid for). Thank you for the reference re: natural cocoa butters, I will review.
