airbrush duh"S

3 posts in this topic

Was cleaning my air brush this morning got it completely cleaned reassemblied an I think I found my problem. When I've been installing the needles sometimes I don't push it in all the way, I just noticed when its not completely seated I have some air bypass, I seated it an it works just like new. I was getting some interuptions of paint flow before. OK so do I need to always have the needle seated.

I would say yes. Because your trigger on most guns pull the needle back to control how much paint comes out. You needle slides back and forth by pulling back on your trigger, while depressing the trigger. By seating the needle all the way forward you'll get tighter lines, the less air comming over the needle the tighter the line will be. I hope this helps.

I seat the needle, but gently. You don't want the hole to get enlarged. Also, I find it is very easy to get needles, cones and the screw-on point apertures mixed up. When you do, strange things can happen - most of them bad.
