Airbrush bottle

Recommended Posts

I found I was wasting a lot of paint using the regular-size bottle with my airbrush. I had an extra metal connection piece from my Paasche single action. I cleaned out a nearly empty Testors paint bottle, drilled and installed it in the bottle lid. Don't forget the small pinhole for vacuum control. I don't mix way too much paint anymore and it's a breeze to clean. It's just the ticket for frames, multiple parts with the same color etc. I go back to the regular bottle for bodies or multiple coat work. Here's a pic.

I did the same thing with the round 1/2oz Testors bottle. I used to use an Aztek airbrush and had all my Alclad paints in Testors bottles. Works like a champ!

How did you get the metal piece off? I want to do this for some glass paint storage bottles that I bought.

The bottle cover is trapped between the top piece and a hex nut screwed on to the shaft on the other side.
