If you have an Airbrush, you’d have suffered the fate of clogged nozzles. If you don’t have an Airbrush this information will help you avoid clogging.
I bought these cleaning wires to aid cleaning. They’re available from RDG Tools and are reasonably priced at £5.50
I start by removing the back cover and releasing the pin. Then I unscrew the 3 front parts.
The nozzle is tiny (o.2mm) , and whilst the smallest diameter cleaning wire fit the nozzle it was too big to push all the way through and effectively “floss” the nozzle.
I then used the same wire to clean the next piece. As you can see from the above picture the wires are quite flexible. This was a perfect fit.
I then used the largest wire to clean the barrel of the airbrush. The was also a perfect fit. Because the wire is twisted, so it has raised edges, it really does help to remove blockages or old dry paint.
A really simple, neat, inexpensive solution to unclogging and cleaning Airbrushes. I really like the fact they’ve been made with a loop at the end and attached to a key ring loop. This keeps them all together and less likely to get lost.
