    Hey Everybody,
    I spotted these airbrushes in a display cabinet at my local AB store and thought some of you might like to see some photos of a couple early airbrushes.
    I’ve attached a screen cap from the stores website with some small background blurb.
    The business is still run by the same family. The daughter who used to machine the nozzles is still there and I speak to her regularly.
    I just thought it’s cool to see early airbrushes and also cool that the business is still in the family.

    It’s always nice to have a history lesson about a passion :) nice to see the evolution of the tools. Many here have some historic brushes.
    Nice to hear about a family business too, way to many corporate beige companies these days.
    Thanks for sharing

    You’re very welcome. It is a really nice place to go. They have a large warehouse full of paint, brushes and all the usual stuff to go with it. They give you a basket and let you have at it. Genius really as I’ll go in for one thing and find a bunch more stuff that I didn’t know I wanted LOL.

    I own two Conopois airbrushes. One with the dating certificate from the Airbrush Company. Nice brushes......................................

    I've met Ken, and his son, Alex, a few times. Ken is a font of knowledge.

    That’s very cool Clive. They definitely know they’re stuff. Luckily I live only about 40 mins drive away. So I manage to get in there more often than I get stuff delivered which is great for asking questions and picking their brains.

    It wouldn’t be too bad for you. I’d guess you’d head down to the M3 and east along the 27, then pick your way through from there.

    Haha, Sorry Mate. I’m not too far from you either. I’m about 20 mins east of Guildford. Apologies for the brain fart .
