Older Thayer & Chandler AB's
Posted by Anonymous on Saturday, August 25, 2007 10:29 AM
Just wondering - does anyone know if Badger parts will fit older (like A series) Thayer & Chandler airbrushes, prior to the omni/vega type head system?

I would think not. How many ancient ABs DO you have? Wink [;)]

So long folks!

LOL..  ok, so every once in a while I get an e-bay binge going on... 

3 Wold airbrushes, from the 20's and 30's..  3 Thayer & Chandler, and my old Badger 200...

One of these days I will try to get some pics of the old ones - they're not all in the best of shape, but they're pretty cool - and makes you wonder about their history.  Tomorrow I"m off to a model airplane race up in Nebraska, so it'll be a while.

No they are not compatible, neither are the new ones.

shucks.  One of the T&C's I've got is new enough it came in a plastic case, not the older style hinged leatherette box, thought I might use it, and was hoping for spare parts if I needed them.  Guess if it works it works, if it doesn't, it doesn't. 


Thanks, Mike

I din't see (look) but which model is "cased"?  I have one that I think is a Model E. I'm looking for a needle & this thing uses a pretty unique screw in color cup/jar.
