  3. be careful if you pull the needele. badgers have a needle bearing that can be damaged really easy. you can also put cleaner in then hold your finger over the nozzle to back flush. then spray without finger to get all the crap out. then follow above. i mainly use acrylics and it builds up fast. good luck
  4. i am using an iwata neo mostly they run about 65$. i'm also running a portercable pancake compressor that i used for a nailgun. this combo works great for what i do. get a good water seperator. good luck. airbrushes are addicting
  5. i just bought a 2" u strap cutter and the second day chipped the blade on a glue spot on my cutting board.

  11. hi all i have acquired several gallon jugs of prime leather finish. the jugs were from around 1997 and they only had basisc info. i have googled it and i still can't find too much info. i figured it is not a stain it's a finish. i'm trying to find out if i can use it straight out of the jug, can i thin it. is it water basedand will it make me have childeren with 3 eyes. any information would be helpful i think. thanks gritty
  12. i always take a deposit for my furniture work. it is usually 50% this should cover my materials and time. if i have bought the material and have started the project i will not refund the deposit. if i have bought the material and haven't started i will refund the deposit less material. hope this helps gritty
