I bought a campbell hausford at Tractor Supply long ago. Pressure regulator and a filter. There’s hardly ever been any water in the filter. But my compressor is also hugely oversized (80g, 7.5 hp – 2stage IR) and hardly runs. That keeps some of the moisture out.

If you’re going to do finishing, a separate dryer may be useful. I have a membrane type dryer (it’s sort of a bypass, so you lose air in the process) that I’ve never plumbed into the line. However, if I was finishing, I’d plumb a separate branch and only use that.

IIRC this site is what I used back in the day….
