Is there a .5 setup available for the HP CS?
yes, there is.
should be the needle, nozzle, and nozzle cap to make the conversion from .35 to .5.
The same to convert to .2 Dave?
there are no parts available to convert the Eclipse to anything smaller than the .35 - if there were, than yes, same three pieces would change.
If I understand this, parts from hp-bcs should do the trick?
yep, those would be the parts .
Yes, I have one. Nozzle, air cap and needle is needed for it. Amazon do them.
Or you could buy a revolution.. they are pretty good.
Do you think it's possible to install a .2 nozzle on that brass piece and some sort of long taper needle? Wonder how that would spray?!
The .35 nozzle is not meant to be removed from the brass carrier. That said, yes, a .2 nozzle could be installed, there are plenty of needles that could be used. The issue is the nozzle cap, or air cap. The opening is not sized for a .2 nozzle, and performance would be greatly compromised in comparison. It is basically the same conversion as making the HP-C Plus a .2 - Iwata sells the parts, but neglects to include a new nozzle cap. The brush is really anemic this way, but add the nozzle cap from a High Line sized for the .2, and it comes to life.
Mine has the floating nozzle. As a general rule don't try modify the nozzle themselves... for the faff that it is it's cheaper to purchase the real deal.
Could you elaborate on this point please? " add the nozzle cap from a High Line sized for the .2, and it comes to life."
Iwata has several series of brushes. Among them are the High Performance Plus series (HP-xPlus or HP-x+), and the High Performance High Line (HP-xH). In the example I gave converting the High Performance-C Plus (HP-C+) from a .3 brush, to a .2 brush - Iwata does not include a new nozzle cap. The hole in the stock HP-C+ nozzle cap is sized for use with a .3 nozzle, making it on the large side for a .2. The nozzle cap off one of the High Line brushes, such as the HP-AH or HP-BH (both .2 brushes in stock form) - these nozzle caps actually fit perfectly on the HP-C+. They are the right diameter, and the right thread pitch to screw right on. The exit bores on these .2 caps are sized to optimize air flow over a .2 nozzle, so pair perfectly with a .2 conversion on the HP-C+.
