Which needle do I have?
Posted by Kentucky Colonel on Thursday, September 13, 2018 7:25 PM

I've ordered some new stuff that sprays on models that creats "anti-slip" on the Bradley but it requires a 0.5 needle or greater. 

Now I know my Iwata does NOT have that.

But I also have an old Badger Model 200 and I'm not sure which one it is. It was a gift given to me 25+ years ago and I don't have the papers any more. If this is any help, it's blue, single action and a siphon bottom feeder.

If I already have the 0.5 needle inside it then that is what I'll use but if I don't then I'll simply order one. 

 

Thanks for any help.

According to Badger, the medium needle for the 200 is 0.8.  Are there any markings on the non-pointy end?

Nope, no markings that I can see on the needle or brush body except for the Name, Badger Air Brush.

I looked them up and saw 0.3 and 0.5 but I must have missed the 0.8 so if I do have either the 0.5 or 0.8 I'm good to go.

Guess I'll just have to try the new stuff out and if it works  I'm ok, if not then I'll have to order a new needle.

Look at Don Wheeler's website. It might be there. Also, it isn't rocket science. I mean no disrespect, but try it as you have it and see if it works.

If it's 25 years old and standard out of the box, it should be of the "old" type and have a 0.5mm tip/needle setup. 

I believe the 0.8mm mentioned earlier is used in the "NH" series.

Thanks. That was what I was thinking but wasn't sure.
