I know little about this...

I think there's a trick to getting the right compressor.
A diving compressor allows no oil into the air.
A land compressor, for cars etc, has oil in the air, usually.

You die if you suck in oil.

So to make an economical one you need to buy a land type compressor that will not introduce oil. I think electric ones qualify.

I believe there's achievable solutions ya just gotta find the Knowledge first
