    i know I’ve read a lot of folks like the Iwata tool kit but some hold off purchase because of the price. Well here is an option, and looks like just the ones that are needed most.

    Hope this helps some
    I know I’m ordering one now

    Nice find:)
    A nozzle removal tool for the iwata is probably my most used tool.

    I have this tool for maintance from Iwata:
    https://www.air-craft.net/cgi-bin/b...rbrush-Maintenance-Kit-IWCL-500.html#SID=1409

    * Iwata Needle Packing Screwdrivers
    For removal, fitting & adjustment of the needle packing (needle seal), 2 screwdrivers (1.2 &
    1.4mm) to suit different needle thicknesses

    I just wonna let you know in Iwata tools there are 2 screwdrivers. So before you order that tool, check which Iwata airbrushes you can use with that tool.

    I have a couple Olympos tools that look similar. On Iwata Microns the cutout in the body is big enough to adjust the needle bearing from the outside. That is not possible on my Olympos Microns, so this tool is almost necessary. It’s much more convenient than reinserting a regular screwdriver a hundred times to test needle drag. Unfortunately, it only works for small diameter needle brushes (Microns, HP-B), not for Eclipse or HP-C, etc.

    I got them from Pacific Airbrush about a year ago? They used to sell Olympos airbrushes in the US. I don’t think they are in business anymore. Maybe they are available from Olympos in Japan still.

    Sometimes you can use a bicycle tire valve stem tool.

    Very cool. Is the needle size on the bearing adjuster small like for micron needle?
