My budget and research always takes me to Ingersol Rand and Quincy for Rotary compressors. I have had opportunity to use both and they're fine.

On a side note: glass bead probably isn't the best thing to be using for achieving a profile for coating.

If it actually is glass bead and not crushed glass, it's useful life is also quite short. (30 cycles if I recall)

Crushed glass can cause you problems with aluminium as well...some coaters have had issues with crushed glass being impregnated into the substrate and showing up as little bubbles or bumps after coating. (Depending on the grit size).

Best bet if you can afford to switch is to go with Aluminium Oxide (80-100 grit) or Garnet.

Just a suggestion ;)
