It works, BUT... May 03, 2011
By Jason M. Smith
This is a nice little package. You get:
1) Pistol grip moisture trap
2) airbrush hose with 1/8" female ends
3) Quick disconnect with 1/8" connectors
4) in-line pressure regulator?
5) 3-way splitter
As I don't really have a use for the pressure regulator, I'm just using the other 4 items in this kit. The hose is basic standard braided hose, no issues with it.
The pistol grip is nice, especially for me with my large hands. It's about twice the size of the Iwata one. Had some issues with my Iwata HP-C+ not threading into the top end correctly, so put it on my Badger airbrush (with the correct adapter) and it seems to work fine.
Quick disconnect is awesome. Need to get another for the Badger.
Finally, the splitter, which is what I mostly wanted this grouping of items for. My setup originally consisted of a Badger Cyclone? compressor (the one with the autoshutoff), a Badger Crescendo 175, and the badger moisture trap/regulator. Last year I bought an Iwata HP-C+ (LOVE that brush!) and an adapter to use the Badger hose with the Iwata AB. Recently I've been wanting to use the Badger for mostly priming and topcoat duties (I build scale models), but since the Badger hose-Iwata AB adapter has a bad leak, had to reapply teflon tape every time I switched between them. I was browsing TCPGlobal's website, drooling over the Iwata CM-C+ when I saw this splitter, and decided to get one. Brilliant idea! Got everything in the mail a few days ago, and today spent 2 hours setting everything up, checking EVERY connection and adapter from the compressor on to make sure I had no leaks at all. Aside from the splitter, there ARE none. The issue with the splitter is that the male threading that the hoses go onto is waaaay to short. They also have rubber o-rings on the bottom of them that prevent hoses from fully sealing, thus causing MAJOR airleaks. They're not AS bad when I removed the o-rings (in fact, the only way I know they're there is that my compressor still cycles every once in a while with nothing using the air, which it only does when there's a leak). Other than that, I have no complaints about it. It will be nice now not having to unhook anything when I want to switch airbrushes. There's even room for a third, once I get my grubby mitts on the CM-C+, or possibly to try out a Master G77 (love that trigger and handgrip!)
