Thought I would just share this beauty shot of my stable. Omitted is my W101.
Ok have to update, damn AAD
CM-C+ (upgraded V2)
That`s a fine collection we forget sometimes the fine engineering of quality brushes, my last purchase is the Devilbiss Dagr I like the weight, removable cup & the linked trigger coupling. My Patriot Extreem began leaking back through the needle seal so I put the guts into an old Patriot 105 bit of a hybrid but I love the high trigger & get really fine lines. I have an Olympos HP-18 BC & a HP-8C single action, also an Infinity that seems designed for small hands, now I am tempted to shell out for a Iwata Micron but which one ? any advise greatly appreciated........
Most will say the CM-SB is the pinnacle, but even though I use mine everyday (with a larger 1/4 oz. Cup), my first, and #1 is still the CM-C+. A little less finicky, larger gravity cup, and can't rave enough about built in MAC valves, which unlike other companies implantation (cough Badger) that seems like an after thought, and just a screw restricting the main air channel. The iwata MAC has a tapered piston going into a chamber that really allows for more precise control.
Thanks for the pointers very interesting I will take another look at both
I've used a Binks Wren model B for the last 40 plus years. It isn't one on the poll. I build plastic scale models and the Wren has been my go to for that and the occasional motorcycle helmet. I also use a Paasche VL to do T-Shirts.
I use the Iwata Hp-CS and the Harder and Steenbeck. These are great especially for miniature painting.
I've added some links below and for the compressor:
Infinity CR Plus 2 in 1
Iwata Eclipse HP-CS
Iwata Studio Smart Jet Pro Compressor
Hope this helps!!
Great brush! I swear by it!
Check out https://www.opiair.net/ theres a few useful reviews on there. I use the Iwata HP-CS and the Harder and Steenbeck 2 in 1 infinity. Can't live without them! Hope this helps.
Iwata HP-CS, Iwata Hi-Line HP-BH, and Mr Hobby Procon PS-270 and while PS-270 costs half of HP-BH, it appears to perform better in my hands. I wish Mr Hobby was making something with smaller cup, for it seems all their air brushes come with large cups that are not always desirable. Looking forward to buy either PS-770 or Iwata CM.
The Custom CM SB is a fantastic brush purchased one last week.My other brush is the CM C Plus but since buying the SB not used the CM C.Once you pick one up you don’t want to use anything else
Iwata Eclipse HP-CS, Neo for Iwata, Badger Crescendo 175, and a Micron knock off from Masters brand, which I do not really recommend. I have also had a cheap harbor freight brush, which was really terrible.
