    They can be a little quirky - they use a o-ring seal on the nozzle, and find it best to not mess with them, Leave the nozzle on the head base, and clean it that way. Some of the nozzles can be off center in the air cap as well, usually leading to an oblong spray pattern rather than round. Inexpensive enough, that I have never really been bothered by the negatives of the build. I purchased quite a few of them looking to see what they were like as whole, rather than just a select sample - I think there was only 1 I could not get to work properly, and it was actually a different build that looked similar.

    Depends on how far off center - sometimes you can simply loosen the nozzle, and re-tighten it while applying a bit of pressure in the direction you want to go. Trial and error will get you closer. Sometimes the nozzle post needs to be bent. This I would not recommend to anyone without proper tooling for the task.

    I've got one, just followed all the stuff Dave put on his FB about it and it's pretty decent after the tweaking.
    I can't remember the name of the place I got it, I'll look. It was hard to find the one w 3 tips for $35 when I was shopping. As it happens mine has worked out better than my krome. ( But I think I got the oddball horrible krome)
    Probably best I not share the way I adjusted the nozzle post since I believe a lot of people who might read this would do more damage than good how I did it.

    I hope my experience of tweaking with all the ab i had now is sufficient enough. Ive done the same method with 2 of my ab before, but from what i saw on your fb this ab model build might need an extra care if i had to do any mod.

    Oh, had to get it direct from mix wholesale instead of Amazon. Worth the extra $10 to get three needles and nozzles.

    I'm sure you'll be fine since having to tweak them before. It's not difficult. In the end the fine lines just aren't as clean as a quality piece and they always need a little adjustment when being put back together is about all I've really noticed.

    I dont have any idea if it comes with 3 tips, it just stated that it is 0.2mm... Well, maybe i need to jump on dave page again to make sure i didn't forget any necessary step.
    Anyway, does damages to my ab is the step of me to gain a better understanding with what im working with.

    I got the pictures now, most of the time what I've noticed is having the ab clean would reduce the performance issues, most of the time imho..

    That one doesn't come with 3. But direct from mix wholesale site you can get the one with 3. It's just $35 instead of $25

    I actually got this because of reading through Daves FB. It was the only budget airbrush that seemed to be worth its price.
    He definitely wasn't wrong
