SharpenAir SprayGunner Orange Edition
Sharpenair Airbrush Needle Sharpener - SprayGunner Orange Edition
Delivers Functionality at its Best
Equipped with four custom-sized diamond grit coated stones positioned precisely within the casing, damaged needles are restored to their factory angles and ready for spraying the finest detail. Needles can be reshaped and sharpened repeatedly.
Compatible with the world’s leading airbrush manufacturers.
Elegant in its simplicity, the Sharpenair airbrush needle sharpening device is a nonelectric, hand-held sharpener capable of restoring bent airbrush needles to near new quality. The sharpener’s precise design guarantees that you can repair damaged needles without compromising their factory angle. The entire process takes a mere 1 to 5 minutes. The company also provides online instructional videos to guide you through the process.
This very practical tool was designed by airbrush artist Chad Elliott who intimately understood the frustrations and needs of the airbrushing community. Smaller than most Smartphones, it measures just 3.5 inches by 3.5 inches. It has a sturdy molded plastic exterior. Portable and tough, it can be included in any airbrush artist’s kit without fear of damage.
The patented interior sharpening mechanism is comprised of four diamond grit plated sanding stones with stainless steel plates. Four separate, precisely angled, runners guide the needles to the sharpening stones. This design takes the guess work out of the sharpening and straightening process. The user simply rotates the needle gently in the runners to completely and correctly repair a bent needle.
Versatility is the key to Sharpenair’s success as an airbrush needle sharpening device. It is compatible with multiple different sizes and brands of airbrush needles. Universal in nature, this tool can also be modified to accommodate the thicker shafts of the DeVilbiss Dagr and some Paschae models at no extra charge.
The cost savings inherent in repairing rather than replacing bent needles is obvious. The larger cost savings could very well be in time saved. Projects can be delayed hours, even days, waiting for hard to find replacement needles. Time is literally money for an artist and the more time spent on a project, the less money earned, not to mention staying on schedule and meeting deadlines.
As a tool that repairs tools, the Sharpenair is invaluable. Its durable structure and effective design guarantee a long life-span. The sharpening stones can be replaced when necessary. The ability to repair a bent needle rather than replace it increases profit and productivity. This tool is a essential component of any airbrush artist’s kit.
I only used it for slightly bend needles so far and it works perfectly ??
Sturdy and does the job. Had a few dinged needles and got sick of rebuying new ones as I’m clumsy and thick fingered. This has straightened those out and restored em to working condition.
SHARPENAIR SPRAYGUNNER ORANGE EDITION
Worked great to sharpen the needles on my Iwata Neo and HP-CS. Russell did an amazing job packaging my order, give that man a raise!
Seems to work well.
It certainly did sharpen my needles but I am not sure it is worth the price for such limited usage. I am also a little unclear as to the 4 positions.
SHARPENAIR SPRAYGUNNER ORANGE EDITION
I used it on an Iwata 0.35mm needle with a small tip bend. It straightened the tip but left the needle with more scratches than I suspected that it would.
works great. Definitely worth the money
Straight as an arrow, fast as lightning, reliable as a Swiss watch. Bravo! Never knew what i was missing till I got the Sharpenair
I use Iwata brushes and I noticed that the needles on both were getting rough and corroded. I was getting ready to buy new needles and when I got my SharpenAir I spent about 15 minutes polishing both needles and I think they're as good or better than new. All sputtering and issues of uneven spray patterns are gone. This kit should last a long time and provide me with the consistent pattern s I need. Most highly recommended
Airbrush needle sharpener
This product is great. Had a bunch of old needles and I used this sharpener on them and they are like brand new. Well worth the money. So if your hard on guns like I am, this is how to go.
