auction is a Veda WD-180 .2mm Airbrush with extra parts
listed below. I also have 2 other auctions for .3mm and .5mm
configurations of the Veda WD-180, so please check those
auctions if interested. It is used, but in my opinion is
actually better than new, because I have polished the
needles using 3M .3 micron polishing film. This helps reduce
paint adhering to the needle tip, which negatively affects
the quality of spray.
a Chinese copy of the Iwata Custom Micron C-Plus airbrush
which costs about $450. Of course this airbrush doesn't have
the same manufacturing tolerances, but it is quite amazing
considering the low cost. It has a nice solid feel and the
chrome plating is quite nice. The case is even nice with a
foam cutout, clear plastic cover, and a magnetic sealing
flap. You can find additional parts on eBay, but this one
comes with quite a few.
experience the micro air control valve, which allows you to
regulate the pressure from off to full, you will wonder how
you got along without it! It allows you to set the pressure
very low for different size stippling effects, but is mainly
used to match the viscosity of the paint being used for your
optimal spray pattern. If the pressure is a bit low then you
will get a rougher atomization providing a textured surface,
but if higher the paint spray will be finer.
The airbrush is already
configured with 1 nozzle, 1 polished needle, 1 nozzle cap,
and 1 needle cap. The extra items included are:
2 Polished Needles
1 Needle Cap

I will ship this airbrush
using a Priority Mail Small Flat
Rate Box so the shipping cost will be low. If I
receive the PayPal payment by early Monday morning you should
receive it by the following Thursday. If you win all 3 of the auctions I can ship all the
airbrushes in a
Priority Mail Medium Flat Rate Box, and will refund the
difference in the shipping cost.
I live in a rural area of
Hawaii so go to the Library in a local town to access the
Internet, which is done only once a week. Because of this
limitation I won't be able to answer emails before the end
of the auction, but hopefully all the information you need
has been included here.
