And no anoying cutouts
On a scale of master to Iwata how smooth and tight would you say you ended up achieving in your threads?
all are better than Master, some not quite as snug as Iwata... I ordered a carbide cutter, and may have been better off waiting for it to arrive to get a more precise cut vs. the one I ground, on the internal threads. Seams like they went from needing a cleaning pass to being a little loose right quick. Of course, they may tighten up when I add the anodizing layer...
Are you thinking of selling some of the brushes when you finish making them. I might be interested in one if or when it comes to be.
I'm sure it will be something to behold.
I would not mind a polished brass handle like that.
Yes! Put me on the preorder list for the DaveG airbrush!!!
I am not at a point where I am planning on making a complete brush, and certainly not anywhere near committing to selling anything. I am just starting to look at the possibility of making an entire brush, but only to satisfy my own creative urge.... metal is the canvas, the lathe the tools for painting upon it . I do appreciate the interest, though!
Yes Dave, but we know you too well . Its like a drug addiction- you start with a joint and before you know it you're mixing crack and heroin together . I'm just saying that given enough time, you'll eventually try making your own brush. And if I was ever offered an option to buy a Custom Micron or one of your brushes, I'd pick yours!
It will be a week or so before I get to setting up an anodizing system to finish the aluminum bits, so I decided to fool around with one of the parts. First panel of 3 on the handle - carved with a high speed rotary hand piece, like a dentist drill. Runs on the same compressor as my airbrush .
Did you just draw the design on first or...how did you lay it out?
Sharpie, right on the surface.
Terrific!! I want one!, Which bit did you use?

I got the carbide single cut burs from my dentist. I used three on this carving - one has a flat top, one has a roundish pear shaped tip, and one is a tiny ball. They are very small. The flat top is used to outline, the pear shaped is to remove background material, and the tiny ball is for cleaning up edges, and stippling the background
Wow! I don't think I've ever seen a carved airbrush handle like that!
Finished the third panel on the handle I was carving on. Decided to mount the whole kit and caboodle on one of my Iwata HP-SB+ brushes.
well, that is indeed a work of art @DaveG !
Thank you for the kind words!
@DaveG I relly want a handle like that!!!!! You must sell them!!
