Air Brush Maintenance and Repair

Post  Planes on Tue Aug 27, 2013 8:35 pm

Is there anyone around here that uses an air brush to any large extent? While I enjoy using my air brush, most of my learning with it has been through trial and error, along with what limited learning YouTube has provided me with. However, maintenance seems to be a subject matter that requires in-person tutelage, as about every other time I use the bloody thing something goes wrong with it. Most of the time I am able to eventually figure it out and fix it, but other things elude me.

I have two major issue right now. The first is with my suction fed air brush, there seems to be a clog or jam inside the L-Joint that is on the top of the glass bottle that connects it to the air brush, and I have no clue how to purge it and regain use of said connector.

The other issue is with my gravity fed air brush. Air flow has simply stopped coming through the brush in any meaningful way. I have gone through and cleaned all the nozzle bits thoroughly, but it's not the paint flow that seems to be the issue, but rather the air itself is not getting through. After this problem started up, I detatched it from the pump and noticed that a large amount of moisture was coming through the hose. This would imply to me that it was caused by excessive moisture built-up, but again I have no idea how to fix this.

And why the hell does these problems always happen when I try to use red?
