Hi Daniel,

The paint passage that goes through the airbrush is extremely narrow for such a fat airbrush, never understood why Badger did that.

Now I should stop beating around the bush....... hehe

Badger is a hobby airbrush brand, and the Crescendo was their attempt to break into the t-shirt artist industry. Unfortunately, it is what it is, and the industry pushed back once they tried one. I know I did. After a couple days of frustration while doing a mural job I launched it about 200 feet across a warehouse, from a scaffold, onto a concrete floor. Never regretted it either

Regards

Here's mine after it's first incident. 56k warning


Edit: People keep asking me about my unfinished Tomahawk. You can see the wing in the pic. No I'm not selling it. If I do, it will be at the Oakville swap meet.

Hi Orenda,

Pretty substantial cooling on that table !!!!!!

FWIW, please charge your lipos in a fire proof container of some sort. I am by no means an alarmist, but it only takes one bad pack to change your life. I got a surplus ammo can for something like $12. Bought one for battery storage, and another to hold packs that I'm charging.

I was just being a smarta__ about the cooling, but that CPU heatsink is a monster. I use a pair of 12V tailight bulbs in parallel on mine. Best power supply I've ever had for $30!!

Yes, you need a load to start it. The Zalman is just there because I was doing some computer work. I use the black one to cool my NiMH packs while charging. I put one of those big massive Thermaltake ones in my computer because it was a little quieter.

@Meneer
You don't need those. You just have to keep an eye on them.
