    I bought this kit (compressor + airbrush) for 129$ (was on sale).

    You can't adjust the PSI on it. It pumps to 50 psi and drops to 30 psi.

    I was thinking to add a MAC valve to my brush to control the flow.

    My question is: Is it possible to use it or it's important to have a steady flow?

    I think you are suppose to adjust the pressure at the bottom of the water trap. It is not as much a regulator as a bleed valve. It bleeds out the rest of the air that you do not want, not restricting flow. But if it not that, then you can add a mac valve to your airbrush.

    I disassembled the airbrush and I noticed that to but the needle back I have to put the sharp part first? I can't the other way because of how its made.

    Is it always like this?

    There are a lot of chances to bend the needle?

    yes the tip goes in from the back of the airbrush, just be gentle and yes there are many ways to bend a needle :)

    I tried today to paint with this kit and it works very well. So for Canadian members it's worth a try but wait for a sale. Usually it's 200$ I bought it for 129$
