    I know similar airbrush holders have been made by members on here, but I couldn’t help share my results.

    This holder is too easy. I happened to have an extra quick connect and the magnet. The brass piece is for an airbrush hose end I had already also. I didn’t have a screw short enough, so I used two washers as a spacer.

    Hi @J000seph ! You weren't seen for quite a while. What happened to you?

    Nice idea! I was thinking to do the same for the reason to use all type of the ABs with connected male QDs. As making similar stands for all the AB manufactured doesn't make sense.
    More over I do not have fittings to 1/8" for all the ABs to put them on the stand. Unfortunately some of those fittings are not even manufactured. So in both cases QD or 1/8" for the stand you will not have all the ABs can be mounted on the stand.

    BTW, mine can hold the ABs without the sticking, just buy its weight;)

    Very familiar story:( I hope that one badly needing You will come along the way.
    At least, you've got hobby that can give you joy and pleasure of life.

    When I saw the thread's title I though you've made a holder that would work on the car boards, for the magnet was mentioned. I even somehow thought on making one of that type. But now I'm working on another.

    I haven’t seen those. I will check it out. Thanks

    Edit: I can’t seem to locate them on Spraygunner site. Do you know the name of it?
