Well - you might want to upgrade the compressor first! I doubt you'd be happy with the poor results the small compressor would yeild,

The smaller compressors - is this an oiless? - really pump out a lot of moisture in the lines - a big no-no for parts blaster.

Even with a bigger compressor you need more than a single filter inline - you need a refrigerated line dryer (the best) or some copper lines like this to cool the air and get the moisture out.



Until then - large parts you could farm out and smaller parts
you could buy a tumbler setup -
