We've used it with good results, and we think it's a great value.

The outfit includes everything you need to hook up to your compressor and spray at 15-60 psi. The siphon-feed airbrush has a .4mm nozzle and adjustable fluid cap.

Unlike other airbrushes that have an annoyingly stiff plastic hose, this one includes a 10-ft. flexible braided hose that gives you a full range of motion.

Two extra glass jars are supplied for mixing and thinning lacquer and stains (many other airbrushes have plastic jars that can react with solvents and finishes). These 2-ounce jars are handy for storing partially used mixes.

Lacquer should be strained and thinned 1:1 before spraying. Not recommended for spraying waterbase finishes.

need instructions

nice unit but it would be nice to have a small assembly and basic use instruction for those who have never used an air brush.

The secret to successful shading

I recently completed an A-style kit mandolin and needed someway to give it that traditional shaded burst look. My 8 oz touch up gun does a nice overall spray, but has trouble with areas that join at an angle (neck/body, fretboard overhand, etc). This airbrush was the solution to my shading problems. I was able to fill in the hard to reach areas and do a nice even tapered burst. Money very well spent.

I bought this to teach myself how to airbrush my guitar builds! Turns out,it's better than some of the more expensive brands and much simpler to use and clean! Thank you!

I have been making an A-2 copy and wanted to get a vintage sunburst. I had tried hand application but wasn't happy with it. Saw your video and found the price of your airbrush reasonable and after a few practice runs was able to get a VERY NICE vintage sunburst with water based dyes. Good sturdy item--Thanks

Airbrush Outfit.

This airbrush works pretty well provided that you have properly thinned whatever you are spraying. Comes with an extra glass container w/lid, and additional glass containers are very reasonably priced. I bought a couple extra. The plastic lid/paint supply, being plastic, is a little bit flimsy and you only get one of them. Don't know if replacements can be purchased, but the possibility of breakage is of some concern. It's pretty easy to clean up after use, and it worked well for my purposes.

I Kinda Like It, But...

Still getting used to it...seem to be having problems with controlling the amount of spray-it's a small gap between way to much and just a little bit, no matter how much I fuss with the adjustment, or my compressor air pressure, and sometimes it just sputters & spits. Also the trigger is a bit unpredictable too...

Nice affordable airbrush

This is a very nice little airbrush kit.I ordered an extra glass sealable paint jar and now have three paint jars.All of the seals for the air brush come with it but they include extra seals.All you need is a little air compressor and some fittings and your ready to go.I thought it couldn't hurt to have a little air brush around.The compressors are very cheap to buy and it beats painting with cans.The colortone aerosol is very awesome stuff if you know how to use it but nothing beats having extra spray pressure and a more even coat.

Great little helper although I can't find an adaptor that screws on the UK propellant can that fits the tubing! Sure it is excellent as have similar 'Badger' ones here in UK that are reliable for touchups when you know what you are doing.
