Hello folks.
A shelf in my office collapsed today, and my airbrush, drying after a cleaning, hit the concrete. Bent the needle, somehow in 2 places. Is this something I am likely to be able to bend back, or should I just get a new airbrush? If a needle is just off a little, is that fatal?


Yeah, you need to get a new needle, if that is the only part bent or damaged. The needle is critical to a consistant flow and having a good spray pattern. Like Space said, they don't cost much.;)
