Topic tags/keywords: question

I am considering buying an Airbrush System for doing detail painting on some of my projects. Has anyone else tried this? I’ve never used one before but I’ve heard they are great? The system I’m looking at is made by Grex.

I’d appreciate any feedback!
Thanks

Have never used an airbrush for any wood project. Have used them for painting.

They are lots of fun. Haven’t a clue about the Grex. Badger and Ishwata are good brands that have long histories of good service.

Have ya looked the the “L’il Critter” 118 siphon gun? Small enough for the little jobs, and big enough for medium size stuff.

@Flyin636… Badger has very bad reviews but Iwata is good. I bought one of their brushes and a 3/4 hp piston compressor but I’m still thinking of getting the GREX airbrush.. you should read up on it it. It’s a dual “trigger” air action brush and is really highly rated by the pro’s around $250.00 for just the brush, so they are not cheap..lol. I haven’t used the Iwata much yet.. but I’m liking it so far. I think the trigger action would feel better in your hand than the top plunger..but what do I know..I need to practice more.. :)

Have your say...
