Potentially opening a can of worms here but here goes; I have a Harder and Steenbeck Evolution 2 in 1 Airbrush and my 0.4mm set no longer works.
I'm usually very careful and dilligent when cleaning my airbrush, but I can see that paint is starting to form up on the inside of the body, so I've ordered a ultra sonic bath cleaner. Now I know that some modelers are dead set against using sonic baths to deep clean their airbrushes but that other guys swear by them and will regularly use them.
I want to try the sonic bath but I want to know what solution I should use. Probably a 50/50 mix with water. Obviously when I strip the airbrush down I will not be putting the delicate part that the air flows though anywhere near the bath.
Any help or advice will be greatly appreciated gents.
Cheers mucker. I'll order some.Try this
dont get it near anything though as it will melt
Acrylics mate. I rarely use enamels.
This looks like a fantastic shop mate.
