    I was able to order the SN1 needle along with 2 needle seals from Robby last week and the parts went in the mail last Friday with a expected delivery time of 7 to 14 days and I know from experience it will take about 7 to 9 days to arrive
    I will write up a review on the needle and the seals as soon as I can

    @SiRoxx I will give that needle a good run for its money and if it is half as good as I think it is I will replace the needle of my HP SB+ for a SN as well
    Just give me time to test it :)

    Ditto, I'm excited and nervous to start getting feedback.
    Dave's may arrive around the same time as yours.

    Robby already knows what I am planning to do to test this needle to the max but for those who want to know : I will do a old school monochrome painting the airbrush will be sitting on the stand with paint on the needle and no air going trough it for minutes while I am erasing and the ultimate test : leave the airbrush on the stand after I am done for the day with out removing the paint or cleaning the needle
    I know my paint will stay fine and my nozzle wont get clogged up the question will be will the dry tip blow off as I give it a blast of air and pass this idiot test or do I need to clean the needle
    the second thing I will test is the needle seal and I will take pics from the needle spring adjustment setup to show how light I can set it before the needle wont return to the proper nozzle seating so will close up the nozzle and no paint will come out if I dont pull the trigger

    If it doesn't, I'll keep trying , if I can get one to pass but yours doesn't, I'll send you a new one.

    No need, if it doesn't and I'm able to make the correction....or not ...I have no problem with people knowing exactly where it stands.
    There's always a way to improve surface finishes.

    Even if it turns out to not be super awesome in the tip dry department it still has some major pluses.

    I think no matter what it will be worth it's price , and I'm more than willing to make improvements.

    Even if wanted to I just don't have the capability to have a couple thousand ready, make a bunch of hype and then cash in before people realize they are just ok. Like so many products seem to do.
    The only way it will go anywhere is if they are really really good so I have to make them as good as possible.

    to me that is the only way to go and believe me I will point out any flaw or problem I run into while testing your products so needle and seals and before any one thinks I got mine send to me for free just for testing it think again I paid for all products I ordered I just got free shipping and that means no track and trace ;)
