Badger Airbrush Spray Issue


Recommended Posts

Much as I love my Badger Patriot 105? I'm encountering an issue where as soon as I press down the trigger, I get paint as well as air spraying, as opposed to just air and then paint coming out when I actually pull the trigger back. Do I need to adjust the needle some or...? Fellow Badger Patriot owners, help?

I have a habit of pulling my patriots needle back when not in use to protect it from damage. The other day I went to use it a totally forgot I had pulled the needle back. Took me a minute or two to realize why I was getting paint with the air when I only pushed the trigger down.

Yep, your needle is not properly seated. As you push it forward, twist it — that helps, I find. Be careful about pushing it in too hard, as you risk splitting the nozzle, and when that happens there's no fix but to buy a new nozzle.
