    LOL
    I dont think I've seen it. I'll put that on the ...to watch list.

    I'm not sure if they do it just to not have it rub the knuckle or if they have unscrewed them though...

    I did not read all the responses but swap the parts between the two and test. First just the nut and if it still unscrews then the needle shaft as well.

    I usually screw on handles so the cutout is diagonal (spans at 10:30 and 5:30) for similar reasons. I've never had problems with chucks unscrewing themselves, but I hate how the chuck jogs my finger when pulling back the trigger if my hand is allowed to rest in the cutout.

    Funny thing is, the stock handle on the Eclpse doesn't have cutouts. I had to buy that issue by buying the preset handle separately... and I ended up never use the preset knob either, but I still keep it on literally only because I prefer the way the brush balances with the preset handle.

    *Edit*: My bad: I forgot the stock Eclipse handle does have cutouts too. Guess that shows how long it's been since I've used it.

    I love my cutout handles... just cuz they look cool! If it looks cool, I must be a better painter, right?

    Just have to figure out a way to put some LED accent lights in the handle so they glow out of the cutouts. Then maybe a clear air hose with some LEDs in it too. Slap on some carbon fiber look vinyl

    You don't need lights inside the hose. Jut need it at the ends. The light will travel along the material just like with fibre optics.

    Speaking of...Im sure we could work some fiber optics in there somewhere.......oh and maybe a laser site so youll know exactly where your aiming before you pull the trigger.
    Maybe make some tiny picatinny rails on it to mount stuff

    Then just a wild computer case to put the compressor and a manifold in....we'd be all set
    Wait wait...exacto blade mounted to one of the picatinny rails
    and finally you could see the compressor tank inside the case and it needs a big sticker that says NOS

    Lmao I was thinking have a laser that shines thru the nozzle so when you pull the needle back it gets brighter. Haha picatinny rails... Then it would be an assualt airbrush and certain people would want them banned :eek:
