Badger jar adapter
Posted by Don Stauffer on Wednesday, October 11, 2017 9:12 AM

I have two Badger airbrushes, a single action 200 and a double action 150.  One has the old style metal jar adapter, the other has one of their newer, cheap, plastic adapters.  I hate that new style, where the piece that sends the paint into the main body is just an extension of the plastic pickup tube.

I went online yesterday, and did find some old style metal adapters, but at outrageous prices (in two cases you had to buy a pair of them).  Also notice that TCP Global no longer handles parts or accessories for Badger.  Bad news all around.  Love my Badger brushes, but I guess I'll have to continue to share that one bottle adapter for both brushes!

Don,

Paasche bottles still have the metal top and they fit Badger.  Here is a source.  $4.25 for bottle and adapter doesn't seem unreasonable to me.

I knew the bottles would fit, but what about the adapter fitting into the airbrush.  Even the Badger adapter I have doesn't fit that well into the brush.  I have had it fall out a few times.  Are the interfaces with that tube that goes from the jar adapter into the airbrush body the same diameter on both the Bager and the Paasche brushes the same?

They fit fine.  It's pretty standard.  You could use Iwata or Grex bottles. Even the bottle that comes with the Harbor Freight airbrush fits.

 I know the bottles are standard, but on the Badgers the bottle adapter removes from the body.  It has a little tube that goes from the adapter into the body of the airbrush.  Is that tube diameter standard from brush to brush, so the adapters can be used on other brushes?

Yes, the little tube is the same.  That's what I meant by fit.
