Airbrush Needle repair

Postby Lego » Sun Sep 11, 2016 12:56 pm

I spotted this on my facebook feed, Spud had spied it :)

So I got talking to my friend about it and he bought it before I had said hello :D

Anyway he reviewed it here Spud. Seems legit.

i use an Aztec...........it has interchangable nozzle/needle assembies that are only about 25mm long......ive got 5 different nozzles so far for different things like narrow or wide or very wide or spatter.........some have plastic needles.......the assemblies only cost a tenner each

a lot of people deride them, some say they arnt reliable but ive not had a problem with mine

id had cheapo chinese knock offs, a badger and an Iwata neo, and they all let me down eventually, i was so annoyed after the neo that i looked around as was going to stump up for a H&S.....then i saw an Aztek set on ebay.....as new never used..thought id give it a try.....won it for 60 quid, got 3 nozzles with it, bought a couple more since.........if it ever dies i will just buy another basic one cos i will already have the nozzles
