Question about Badger Basket Starter Spray Gun Hobby Set

1 Answer

Total Novice Bought an Iwata Revolution airbrush and the instructions are almost worthless for a beginner. Where do I put the paint? What do all of the nozzle adjustment do? Stuff like that. Help if you can.

I suggest that you go to the Library and look up how to airbrush. The paint goes into the cup. Nozzle adjustments are learned as you go, for desired results. Good luck

Iwata eclipse G6 airbrush gun - no paint flow, bubbles forming in gravity feed bottle.


it is rather large (usually 0.6mm nozzle) airbrushing gun,

symptom indicate that needle is closing the nozzle and not retracting, gun need cleaning! or adjustment - seem like both...

remove paint from the feeder, remove feeder bottle from the gun body, clean it well with paint stripper and then solvent/water allow it to dry
remove front casing from the gun and check for any physical debris around the needle or in the chamber, carefully clean without damaging the needle. needle is stainless should be nearly mirror finish.wash with solvent and use toothbrush - DO NOT USE METAL BRUSH!

put it back together and check if it works correctly, if you have any flow from the front - fill about 1/3 of the tank with paint stripper and then spray it to the sink or whatever other safe place. do not forget to wear safety mask, goggles and gloves! paint stripper will eat through your skin! if you splash yourself, have few spoon of vinegar mixed with 2pints (1 liter) of water and this solution will deactivate paint stripper! SAFETY FIRST!

if gun still do not work - you need to strip needle assembly and clean it correctly, put your gun on the table on butcher paper, remove screw holding needle on the back (watch for the spring!) put whole assembly on the paper in the order in which you removed it,
clean needle and needle seat, lightly grease it with vaseline and in reverse order put it back together.

regulations:
very bottom screw - this close to the airhose, it regulates volume of the air to the gun, you very rarely need to adjust that one, you increase volume with haevy paint and decrease it with light paints
needle screw - it regulates volume of the paint itself, closing it clockwise will decrease amount of paint, anticlockwise will increase volume of paint
top screw - it regulates the spray pattern, totally closed - round pattern as there will be no flow to side vents, more open, more flat the spray pattern,

i would suggest fill the bottle with water and put some butchers paper on the wall and experiment what is what and what pattern is most suitable for your use.

hope this little info will help you solve your problem, it is good you give the model, it will be better if you provide as well what medium you use, was it acrylic, oil, water based? all of them behave little bit differently in airgun...

please do not hesitate to leave your opinion and points... thanx!

I cant decide between two airbrushes i am thinking on ordering.I want a large cup gravity feed and right now am debating between the Badger 100LG and the Paasche Talon.Any comments would be great


I am not familiar with either brush, but they are both well known name brands. The Paasche will probably have more readily available parts for it than the Badger in case something breaks or you drop it. I myself use Iwata, BUT the parts are expensive.
It will boil down to which brush comes with what size tip/needle in accordance to what type of media you will be shooting. Thicker paints or stains will require a bigger tip and needle, thinner paints and stains, just the opposite. I hope this helps.

Spraying paint instead of air for the first action


Make sure the needle is pushed completely up against the tip. You will possibly have to take the back handle off to adjust it. (I am not familiar with this paint gun specifically). Make sure you do not force the needle into the tip, gentley push it until it stops.
I hope this helps.
