BENT NEEDLE BLUES
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.
