Pulsing airbrush...
« on: March 20, 2013, 09:44:45 PM »
I have a Badger 150 being ran by a pretty decent 1 gal compressor. No matter what pressure I set the tank, about once every two to three seconds the brush cuts out for a fraction of a second. I think it's a paint feed issue, but it occurs with both the color cup, and a 1.5 oz jar. I don't think it's a paint issue, as the same thing occurs with plain water. Is this an issue with the chamber seal?

Could be a chamber seal or could be an airline fitting leak.

Did you check if the pressure changes without the airbrush attached and just a finger on the hose? I would assume, if something is wrong with a seal, it would just the opposite and not shut off.
