Airbrush Quick Realease Valve

Postby flashinglizard » Tue Mar 07, 2017 6:13 pm

Can anyone recommend a good quick release valve for Airbrush to air hose ?
I bought a couple of Chinese quick release valves (aliexpress) but Im getting air leaking sometimes.

I just got a new airbrush so like to have it working good :)

Just wondering what people use here ?
Any links to hobby shops or online?

not sure the best place to get them, as i got two off of ebay, and only one was complete and that leaks, its certainly useful, i would say ebay again maybe a branded make if there is such a thing, the airbrush looks like a copy of Badger how do you find it works for you Derek ?

Thanks Nigel.

Wohhaaoo look at the price of them! It doesn't actually say its a quick release valve. Looks like they have treads on them all. Probably an adapter from 1 size to another. A bit over my budget for any quick release valve :-D

I got the airbrush yesterday from emodels.co.uk . I just put a clear coat on my Colonial Viper MKII. Seems A LOT better than my Chinese air brushes [smilie=pray.gif] .
Looking forward to using it more in the next few days.

Im going to purchase 1 or 2 from ebay. Thx!
