For some reason, Every time I use lacquer primer in my old airbrush it orange peels, no matter how close I keep the airbrush to the airbrush to the model.
If I don't thin the primer, it spits really bad. So, I thin it with lacquer thinner, I get really bad orange peel. Actually worse than orange peel. It's more like spraying it with fine granules.
At first I blamed the primer. But now with a different type of primer, I'm getting the same thing. I'm also getting a lot of dry tip.
The needle isn't in original condition. It has seen a little file action when the tip got bent a while back.
Anyone got any ideas?
