I bought the Micron because I'm doing her class in June. I've just played with it so far and the thing is amazing. It uses very little air with very little trigger movement but likes thin paint. It can do crazy detail.

just a new needle will work. but if you crack a nozzle it is best just to get the whole system.

I've read this but don't see how they can say this. For me I would rather think the needle and nozzle needs to match. What does the needle- or air cap have to do with the nozzle?

As seamonkey can tell you the nozzle can break when installing it. I can not see having to buy the complete unit either but it is easier in the long run to replace the whole thing.
As far as matched set , I would have to see the blueprinted sheet on it of where the tolerances are +or_ .00000000000001 to say it is a match set.
Kind of a balanced and blueprinted engine.

I take my nozzle off to clean it and am careful when putting it back on I feel the poor seamonkey had a defective part

Oh I agree on the defective part But If you are too heavy handed with it, It too can cause it to break. Just saying it is not something for the weak of heart or ones on a budget to try due to it may end up costing you more in the long run.

On a micron, taking the whole head assembly out and cleaning it as a whole unit is the wisest. But also, try and figure a way to get a good clean without having to do any of that if you can. Even the threads in the body of the airbrush will tire and wear if you do a deep clean every day. Using beeswax to seal and lubricate the threads will extend life as well.
