I have a question that I should know the answer to, but I'm certain I'll get a lot more information than if I just look it up on the web:
If the point of my airbrush needle is bent, what are the impacts of that?
What I THINK happens is this: paint spatters and instead of the spray coming out in a nice, straight pattern from the tip, it may come out at a crazy angle, or not evenly.
Does that cover it?
I recently ordered a new needle for my Iwata HP-CS as I know the tip is just a little off, but the one in my Precision Aire is extremely fragile and easily bent (I know this from experience and from last nights session. sigh). I only recently started using the Precision Aire after sitting in its box for ages but it is has I think a nice.5 needle instead of the .35 in the Iwata so it covers the big 1/32 models much easier (wings, fuselage). Not the best airbrush, I know.
Thanks for your comments!
