.3MM NEEDLE FOR HP-B+
Posted by 40kminis on Friday, March 17, 2017 8:28 AM

I like the HP-C+ but I prefer the cup size of the HP-B+. Is there a way to convert the needle for HP-B+ from a 2.mm to a .3mm?

I have read this can be done, but I cant find a conversion kit.

I don't know but the people to contact would be Coast Airbrush. In their parts schematic for the HP series they list a .2mm conversion but list the .3mm conversion as not possible. Here's a link to their parts page, Coast Airbrush . I hope the link works.

I checked coast airbrush and it says its not possible. I tell you a set up that I have with my HP-C. I have the .3mm needle and a .2mm nozzle. It supposed to be the "poorman's" CM set up. Works really well so far. What type of paint do you use?

He wants to use the larger nozzle on the HP-B and it won't work because the aircap and how it mates with the body of the HP-B is smaller than the HP-C.  All you've done is screw in a smaller nozzle ... and if you're happy with it great ... but it's nothing like a Micron.

40k minis:  If all you want is a the small cup style why not just go with the Eclipse HP-BS ... It's a nice airbrush and I use it for touch ups because it's easy to clean ... the head design of the Eclipse is much better suited for paint that the High Performance.
