    Yep, the airbrushnewb needs help. I seem to have pulled apart more than what everyone(?) shows on Youtube.

    I made a picture, I hope you can help me with some arrow or explanation. I only need it to prime my 3D printed parts.

    Thanks in advance,
    Tiriaq

    this airbrush is not that hard to assemble and I see you kept the parts more or less together but I will try to help you get it back to working order
    step 1 : air valve put the little spring over the brass valve place the valve back in the airbrush and put the screw back in
    step 2 put back the trigger not a easy job as you have to fiddle that stem back in the hole
    step 3 push down the trigger and place the needle back in the airbrush
    step 4 : put back the needle guide , put the spring back and place adjuster screw back ( it is the part on the left next to the handle and last thing is replace the needle chuck .
    this only leaves the back handle to be put back on but check the airbrush / needle movement first

    This video is from another member here. It shows how the airbrush works and the dismantle and assembly.

    Thank you so much! The forum wasn't working for a while.
    Normally it doesn't come apart like this but I've only cleaned it maybe times before. Years ago, picking it up because of resin printer.

    Thanks I never had much trouble with the normal procedure but now stuff from underneath fell out and I could not find it. I've got it this far, still a rubber ring left and I wonder if the copper part from underneath is complete. I'm about to screw it up in but according to the pictures mine is a lot different or I lost stuff.

    20191016_1aa35940.jpg When I push this inside there seems to be nothing the thread can screw into and I pushed it quite deep I think besides that the pin is sticking out so far I wouldn't know how to even get a screw driver against it and turn

    that rubber O ring is not part off the air valve , the easy way is to put in the valse in first followed by the spring and the little screw

    Whatever I try the tension spring feeling on pressing the button is gone, only when pulling it back there is spring tension *sigh*

    I was hoping if I screwed the hose back on pushing the underspring in that it would come up high enough or something to get that tension back. I guess it's game over

    I used iwata tool for mine airbrush. Try using Tweezers.

    that gold thing(on top of the red) is for that- mucho expensive....Not cause it's gold, but because it's Iwata :laugh:
