BENT NEE­DLE BLUES

Model Rail (UK) - - Workbench -

My air­brush didn’t seem to be work­ing prop­erly and, af­ter look­ing at the nee­dle un­der a mag­ni­fier, I found that the tip is slightly dis­torted. Is there any way

I can fix it? Si­mon Sharkey, by e-mail Mike says: It’s best to re­place the nee­dle with a new part. A bent nee­dle tip will cause the paint to spray off to one side and it will also wear the in­side of the noz­zle. A se­verely bent nee­dle may dam­age the noz­zle when it’s re­tracted, so the noz­zle may need re­plac­ing too.
