Does anyone own one? I'm looking for a gas or electric air compressor that fills to 4500 psi and can be used for scuba diving. Not sure what is available in Canada, but this site has some neat ones.

Here's one for sale on www.airguns.net

yes i am a regular on TAG but most of those guys are from the US. I'm hoping to find someone locally or nationally that has some experience with them.

There is a rumour going around that by the next SHOT Show, a portable compressor will be available for a price point of $500US.

I wonder if that $500 air compressor is able to fill a scuba tank or just a small air cyclinder of a PCP airgun.

there is a big difference between BREATHING AIR and clean high pressure air for driving a tool ( air gun) there is a lot of requirments and testing of compressors used to fill breathing air cylinders . My life depends on quality air for breathing , the requirement for driving tools is substantially less and should be a lot less monies invested . In smaller urban centers sometimes the fire department will fill air cylinders for a small nominal fee especially if you become a member.
just my 2 bits
