and number 5
And the needle gasket.
made of ptfe (teflon)
I hope you can see the File. Something like this should of been with the brush
In the picture That Erwin sent you Part number 5 is an O-Ring that seal the nozzle cap to the body
Thanks for helping out with the pic. I wish I would of known our forum when I started. Know I‘m learning to use the functions here in the Forum
I think most of us had a facepalm moment when we found this place. So many helpful and non judgemental people. It really is a nice little family.
I believe #5 is a 10mm x 8mm (1x8) oring. I bought a pack of them for less than the cost of 1 in an Iwata package.
Correct Both the number 5`s are O-rings and Iwata comes with O-rings that can take Water, Lacquer, Enamel and Urethane paints so solvents will do noting to them I use some WD-40 if Im not going to use it for a while keeps everything nice and lubed
So do you know the material they are made with? Viton, Nitrile, PTFE, etc?
Petroleum based oils like WD-40 can degrade some common oring materials over time.
As I am using water based paints, it really doesn’t matter on the material. And at $6.50 for one Iwata oring, I could replace it 50 times with a Nitrile. Just a little FYI
Sorry double post
Unfortunately I don`t but havn`t had any issues with WD40 or solvents in years of use
I would like to know the material if any one has a clue.
I use brakepiston lube for my airbrushes. Since the pistons on a brakesystem have o-Rings and this lube is great never gets hard or gummy.
I have been using this for years without a problem on all my airbrushes without any problems
