Reaper Vex Airbrush Spare Parts

Recommended Posts

Where can one go to for spare parts for the new Reaper Vex airbrush?  In particular, needles.  It is always helpful to have at least one as a spare.

So it comes with 2 needles . . . ?  Does that mean you'd want a spare of each size? Two spare needles.

 

I assume that Badger would be where one would go for spare parts.

Pretty sure later this month Reaper will have a full line up of Vex related stuff at the end of the month. 

 

Rcon was just a soft release for the airbush itself.

Does the Vex share the same needle sizes? With the no changing the aircap due to needle size, im not exactly sure.

The vex can operate either of two needle sizes. Changing from one to the other was just a quick swap. At least that is what they demonstrated.

Not sure what is meant by "aircap"?

 

The needles are badger needles, that part number is made by Badger. Are you asking if the needle sizes are the same as the needles in other Badger airbrushes?

 

(edit: But see @Ratmaster2000 below)

I think RM is better informed.

Per Ron during Reapercon, they are taking care of all aspects of the airbrush (customer service, warranty repair, etc.) and they will be supplying the replacement needles (from what I understand, the needles are exclusive and not the same as other badger needles).

In short, we don't know.

 

I was a logistician in a previous life.  Spare parts were part of the game.  You never need them until you need them.  Then you really need them.  My plan is to have a spare of each needle in hand.  Just in case.  And needle tips, for whatever reason and no matter how careful, get micro-bends.  You can use sandpaper to make them work, but they don't work as well as an unbent, unfixed one.

I definitely agree about the spares, especially with airbrushes.  Odds of damage when it comes to needles and nozzles is just high enough that I like having a spare for both.

Weren't the airbrushes supposed to be out today?  Or did I get that wrong?  I'm hoping spare parts will also be available.  If not, I'd ask from where can we get them.

OK.  Let me try this.

 

If the Vex is produced by Badger and Reaper is not going to support it by making spare parts available, is there a Badger part that will substitute?  Specifically, needles?

 

I'm not going to use my Vex without having a spare.  Past experience.
