That drier/regulator should help with some moisture.

As with anyone on a tight budget, you need to "work with what you got", and try to work around the limitations

Yep, 14 ga is up in plasma territory or even an Oxy/aceythlene torch with a stepped sheetmetal tip.

Also as for working on a tight budget it is sometimes tempting to just tell someone to get a bigger and better compressor, etc, but that is not always an option and I agree that "work with what you got" may be the only option sometimes, assuming the tool/tools can be made to work even if they are not optimal.
