    George The older I get, the better I was.

    Where do I buy parts from the Iwata airbrush or who repairs them. I had to take mine apart to cleanit. The needle couldn't puncture the tip so I removed the tip AND DROPPED IT. Its not much bigger than the "o" on this font so finding it proved a losing battle. (And YES, I was over a lit table but when it came out it hit the airbrush barrel and ricocheted off into the netherworld someplace.)

    You might try Coast AirBrush they have a large assortment of Iwata airbrushes and probably the parts you are looking for.

    Hobby Lobby might have replacement parts. The one near me sells a few
     
  4. George of all things not to know.

    www.chicagoairbrushsupply.com/parts.html I have purchased a lot of part form these people fast shipping and they always have part on hand. They have a schematic of the airbrushes ion line.

    http://www.dixieart.com/Iwata_Airbrush_Main.html t=These folks also are top notch.

    Hobby Lobby might have the parts but it may be a wasted trip as they dont stock much.

    George, you can contact Iwata-Medea.com and they will repair your airbrush and send it back you. They replace needle, nozzle, whatever is needed, test and return it to you, and the cost is cheap. Chicago Airbrush also has parts, and they have some of the best prices.
