Well I bought a Pneumatic Oilless Aircompressor and a cheapo airbrush with it. The cheapo airbrush came with a smaller cord and a 1/4 attatchment with it for the compressor. The larger compressor cord was to big to work with the small airbrush so I had this set up like this
The connectors between the cord and the brush for whatever reason leaked. I could get air to blow out through the pistol but it had 0 sucktion on the 2oz bottle. I tryed various ways of hooking it up but nothing, so I figure it was a cheapo airbrush and I got what I paid for.
So I drove up to Harbor Freight today and returned the compressor and airbrush just incase something was wrong with them and got a brand new compressor and a different airbrush but ran into the same problem again.
This time I bought a gravity gun and I still have air leakage between the connections. I also bought these 2 niffty little male and female hose connetors thinking they might fix that problem
( we use the same type connectio at my school with our air compressor system) but even with these connectors the air still leaked out.
As you can see in the 3rd picture the connectos are all wrapped in white tape. The Pneumatic compressor came with "teflon" roll of tape so after the air leaking wouldnt stop I linned all the threading I could find on any connection and wrapped the entire thing with the teflon tape and I still could hear the leak. The 1st airbrush I had leaked but had alot more air flow through it than the 2nd gravity gun, except the gravity gun actually will shoot the paint out, just a very very weak spray. Im at a total loss of what to do....Any ideas????
