    Happy days for me:thumbsup:not so much for the bank:( ordered some paint and k33 balm, just to make it worth while.
    What made me chuckle was I bought the balm for the needle etc and I got a nice freebie in the form of a smiley face magnet and .......... Some iwata needle lube:thumbsdown:.

    Thanks Andre was a little nervous when doing it, only because I knew how much a new one was if I stuffed it up.

    always like freebies, just found it ironic to buy the balm to replace using lube, to be given a tube of lube free.

    That's why I cut up the ones from some Chinese knockoffs.

    Couldn't find the cheap Chinese jobs so had a go at my own, hopefully 1 day Marissa will release the "black devil" as an upgrade option.

    chances of that happening are real slim : they have to be matched to the heads :( , and the open caps that are on the market are rubbish . I have them on my back up guns and if I dont clean em every so often they will collect paint and start to sputter paint all over your work .

    The cap for the Micron I made does not get a pigment of paint on while I paint. On the Eclipse it does because I use a bit higher pressure and I presume the spray pattern is different.
