Question on Iwata eclipse
Posted by Greatmaker on Sunday, December 03, 2017 9:29 AM

Is it normal to have an air leak between the nozzle cap and the nozzle head cap?  When I use the cleaner it really foams up between the two

Thank You

No. Try putting a little bees wax on the threads.

Yes, it's normal to see some bubbles.  Whether it matters is a matter of opinion.  A lot of airbrush artists think it does, and put bees wax or chapstick on the threads.  I don't agree.  The air loss is so small compared to what is coming out around the nozzle, I can't see how it could make any difference.  Try it both ways and see what works the best for you.

Thanks guys. I was just concerned that this was happening on a brand new airbrush. Haven’t used on of these before so I wasn’t sure if it would cause problems or not.

I wouldnt spend any time on trying to fix it. I have the same issue and I dont bother giving it a second thought. 

It's normal.
