Hi Steamchick and Balta, I've been selling air compressors for the best part of 45 years and have found that the small dental compressors sold by Bambi are the most reliable and quiet on the market. Unfortunately they have stopped making the oil lubricated units so the best option is to look on ebay or gumtree for something like a Bambi 75/80 or the 75/150 oil lubricated units. The only difference is the size of the receiver. The 80 has an 8 ltr receiver and the 150 has a 15 ltr receiver. both units give 54 ltr per min at 6 bar. These compressors run at a noise level of 55 dBa ay 1 mtr so to the human ear are virtually silent. The reason that they are no longer available from Bambi is that they can no longer get piston rings for the pumps, also most dental surgeries require oil free units which is fine for my company as it increases the service and maintenance costs. Hope that this helps, regards Graham T.
