Was asked by mods to start this Air Brush thread to be pinned and I'll keep it up to date with links/tutorials as we go along. Keep the chatter/off topic to a minimum please. 

 

Feel free to add links/websites/tutorials/videos/books/articles in this thread and I'll compile them here in the first thread post (just no commerce links per Forum rules).
 
Here we go!

I've designed several stands for some of my own airbrushes, and uploaded the STL files to Thingiverse for 3d printing. They all print with minimal supports; I've been enabling Cura's "Make overhangs printable" option, and then they need no supports at all.

 

I wanted something that would hold the brushes securely without being a pain to get them in and out of, and the test prints I've so far done have worked very well. I've pierced the bases with countersunk holes for screwing them down to a desk or shelf or just a bit of wood, to give them considerably more stability — they're fine just on their own with an unmounted brush, but I worry about snagging the hose on a mounted brush and pulling the whole shebang on to the floor.

 

So far I have designs for the following:
 

Badger 105 Patriot at https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3135372

Badger 200 Single-action at https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3135516.

Badger Krome at https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3137556

Paasche Talon at https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3141265

 

Here's the stand for the Patriot 105:

The others (and any others I make in the future) are pictured on my blog at http://mojobob.blogspot.com/2018/10/airbrush-stands.html

I started another thread for this question but it should probably live here as it's something future Vex airbrush owners might want to know, I know I do :)

 

Could someone with access to the Vex do a quick scaled comparison of the spray pattern you can achieve with the different needle sizes? Nothing fancy just a side-by-side of some squiggles and dots. I thought this info might be hiding in a review or promotional material but I'm not having any luck finding it.

 

Thanks for your help.
