    Hello all, recently bought an Iwata Custom Micron cm-sb from a guy for a decent price but the side cup is not exactly good, so I want to replace it. My question: are there options besides the original side cup from Iwata which fits the custom micron cm-sb?
    I live in Brazil and parts are rare to find. Any help is welcome.

    The only other cups I can think of that fit the Micron would be like cups from one of the Olympos side feed brushes, like the HP100 (same cup) or the plastic ones from Aztek.

    I don't have one (nor a Rich As-2 airbrush - yet), so can't say for sure. I will say that the other Richpens I do have, that are side feed, have a larger diameter feed tube than the Iwata. It is possible the AS-2 is different than those I have.

    I can confirm that this one is exactly the same as iwatta's.

    Do Olympos side cups fit Iwata brushes? Not cheaper, I know, but in the interest of collected variety of options, I'm curious.

    The cups from my HP-100SB works perfectly with my Micron. Excactly the same design, finish is just not as good as Iwata.

    Thanks! The Olympos cups are a different design from the Iwata ones, so it's great to know they're viable option.
