Airbrush Question About Needle Packing

4 posts in this topic

I know the needle packing goes in front of the needle chucking guide but I was wondering where?

Does it attach to the chucking guide or is it up inside the a/b body?

Asking because I think I need to replace mine.

Thanks.

Mentioning what airbrush you have might help. Did the airbrush come with a schematic? If not there could be a chance of finding one online.

If you go to the Dixie Art webpage, they have exploded schematics for several airbrush brands. On Iwatas, the packing is a teflon screw that apparently inserts from the rear of the barrel. I've never heard of anyone replacing the needle packing. On most airbrushes, the packing is teflon that is resistant to solvents. I know that even acetone has no effect on my Iwatas. The packing is an area that is subject to getting gummed up with dried paint. I'd soak the brush in airbrush cleaner for 24 hrs to see if that fixes your problem before trying to replace it.
