I was asking the same question, and found out that "oil-type" air compressors produce carbom monoxide.... because there is oil in the cylinder during compression.

You would need to use a diaphram-type, also known as "oiless" compressors. I switched over, and now do what you were talking about. I will add that they are not inside the booth sucking paint fumes. :-)
