    I'm SUPER new. I was wondering if someone could tell me about this.
    https://www.amazon.com/Ediyworld-Cl...6&sr=8-9&keywords=airbrush cleaning kit iwata

    I understand the brushes, but the second key ring looks like metal sticks. Are they also brushes?
    Would you recommend this product for a Neo Iwata? Thanks.

    Soak the nozzle and ‘poke’ inside it with a long bristled artist bush, poke one or two hairs right through the nozzle, you’ll be amazed at the ‘worms’ That appear. Be very gentle when poking/reaming inside the nozzle with anything metal. It’s easy to scratch the soft brass and if you push to hard you run the risk of flaring /cracking the nozzle !

    If you're in the US, harbor fright has a cheap spraygun cleaning kit, it has the same small round cleaners on a ring but just one long very thin poker(I use an old needle for cleaning the gun), it also has some bigger brushes that come in handy especially if you have full sized guns, think it's cheaper than that price, thinking it was $4.99 last time I got it and you get a lot more.

    Harbor freight also have really cheap strainers, they're full size but you can cut them down for AB. I was getting gouged on strainers through the paint stores till I found them.

    Those tiny brushes should not go anywhere near the inside of an airbrush. Even Ken from Badger said so in a video.
