For 89 bucks looks like the paint fumes blow back into the users face ?Hi,
I use Badger - 105 and 155 airbrushes - with a TC910 compressor.
For a low cost paint booth: https://www.amazon.com/Master-Airbr...F8&qid=1521689295&sr=8-6&keywords=paint+booth
I've tried many others - settled on these - dumped the rest.
You might want to visit this site - lots of good info:Amazon has a kit by Master Airbrush which has 2 gravity feed dual action brushes (.2 & .3mm nozzles), 1 suction brush (.8mm nozzle), a 1/6 hp single piston compressor w/ air pressure regulator & guage/water trap (.8cfm air volume & 23 lts/hr air flow). At a price of $140 xoes this sound like a good deal??
I could not get an Amazon link but this link shows the kit I was looking at:You might want to visit this site - lots of good info:
You didn't give a link to the package you mentioned so it is hard to be sure BUT the Master air brush that Don reviewed requires a tool to change the nozzle.
The Badgers I use don't require any tools.
Perhaps you should read Don's review in it's entirety.
I do not know about the Iwata Airgun, but do know about their full size LPHV model. I can tell you it's an excellent product, minium over spray.I am using the following:
Iwata HP-CS Airgun
Iwata Studio Series Compressor
Thanks for the advice, and to everyone else than you. Now looking at recommended items. Badger 150's seem to go for $100usd.....does that sound about right? Now for a compressor....hmmmThat's one of the Chinese knock-off sets that I recommend avoiding. For a first airbrush, stick with one of the known quality brands.
I have -
4 Badger - 2 150's, a 175 and a 200
3 Paasche - a H, a VL, and a Talon
1 Iwata - an Eclipse HP-CS
1 Peak - a C-5
2 No name Chinese knockoffs - one works beautifully, the other is a piece of junk that I may someday spend hours fixing up.
Be aware that not all of there are double action; there are specific reasons for those. The Badger 150 is still my go to airbrush, followed by a tie between the Iwata and the Peak. Just remember, I've been at this for over 54 years - I didn't acquire all those brushes in one go. My first 150 is over 30 years old, and, with the appropriate maintenance (new o-rings, etc.) it works as well now as when I first got it.
The Badger 105 is somewhat easier to clean. I can use it all day, cleaning it, without taking it apart, when changing colors.
If in doubt you can get a set of both the 105 and the 150 for $155 from Amazon.
