Well just for Squishy.
First the needle stops , The Krome has Fine machine thread while the Micron has Coarse Threads.

Next the handle both about the same Krome is a bit beefier

Next the needles both pretty much are the same

I have to add to this i feel the microns needle is a bit more sturdier i had allot of hard landings and never bent it once (hard landing) when your doing a dagger strokes real fast like and you accidentally hit the canvas or panel at the end usually resulting in a slightly bent needle.

Good show.

Maybe you should have grouped the head assemblies together as some don't compare like for like.

I've got a breakdown of a Chinese BD130 to compare with these if anyone is interested.

I think to have a thread or threads that show parts side by side is a great thing. So if you are willing I would be interested,

Well being I have not hit either needle that is not something I could comment on.

Lol, me neither :)
The needles are the same, but yes the krome's are slightly weaker. But here is a tip, they are the same diameter and the krome's will work in the micron. Much cheaper in price if you want to go that route ;)

Wow Herb! You're my hero. Thanks for doing this! It was the trigger tensioner/rocker I was interested in, and I have to say the Krome's rocker looks easier to put in being a little bit longer. Anyone else who wants to do their brush als,o would be great, and useful for others too I'm sure. I will do my hp-cs in the next few days if anyone wants.

I am glad I am your hero...LOL , But I think it would be great to have a break down of all the airbrushes that not only give everyone an ideal of the parts involved to each airbrush.
