    After a prolonged hiatus, I am going to try and pick up my air brushes again. I tried doing this before, but my wife took my brushes and attempted to use them to do some touch up painting on her car:( I have finally soaked them in restorer today and with new o rings on order and a part from Sotar I hope to get them back working again.
    I also ordered a new HPC-SB yesterday so I will have something that will work at least when it arrives. I also have a HB Evolution that I am trying to get working also.
    Any tips would be appreciated. I have forgotten the little I once knew so I will be almost starting over again.

    Welcome back! It’s always good to see people return. Glad to hear you’ve got the Airbrushes fixed up, I’m sure it’ll be just like riding a bike.

    I learned long ago that wedded bliss sometimes requires getting your spouse her own set of tools..

    lollol My wife was a mechanic's daughter. I wouldn't be among the living if I gave that toolkit. She'd have a good laugh, but still tear my head off.
