    Finally being warm enough to paint I’ve been using my new airbrush.
    However, when I wait for a piece to dry then go to spray again
    my airbush is clogged. So i try putting in reducer with no luck. Then
    disassemble it, but now I cannot get it to fit back. The trigger is loose
    and I have no idea how to put what is at the left in of sixteen back on right.

    Hi, I think u made d same mistake I made: submerged every thing in solvent. That’s a no no even for the regular guns, those seals are very sensitive to reducer or thinner, they grow very large and will not fit after a period of time in the solvent. :wak :cheers

    Pivot the top front of #16 forward, and slide it in the brush body against the trigger post. Purge the gun with thinner if you leave it idle for while. Sometimes you’ll find no air when depressing the trigger. Pull off #2 and you’ll have air when the trigger is depressed. Just clean #2 and you’re good to go. I don’t use #1, it obstructs my line of sight and view of the needle tip. Side cups provide a better view.
