*** It will work,,, I have a 60 gal. Husky compressor that i got at Home Depot..... Has a lifetime warrantee, 100% duty cycle, & cast iron.... I paint & do alot of body work w/ air tools....Get a good air filter ($90) or else get 2 cheaper ones that they sell at Menards ( run them in a line ) .... then get a disposable pre-filter for your paint guns... It all helps .....

My makeshift little system at home i've a good run of piping from the compressor straight up then on a slight angle further up for some length then back down to my regulator filter then I use dunny roll holder a metre after that .. then my length of hose to the gun -- its only temporary but I;ve had no problems with water/oil goin through my lines ..
and as long as your compressor runs the same or more CFM than your gun requires at a given pressure you will have no problems ..
