CUSTOM MATCHED HAND-TUNED HEAD SYSTEM
Every Custom Micron head system is custom matched and hand tuned to meet Iwata’s rigorous performance standards
for superior atomization.
A custom matched head system (#1) consists of four parts
— needle crown cap (#1A); nozzle cap (#1B); nozzle (#1C); and the head nozzle base (#1D) — which are hand-tuned to work together. These components and the custom matching process create the Custom Micron’s exacting performance.
ERGONOMIC MAIN LEVER
The ergonomic main lever enhances comfort during use for greater ease, control and less finger fatigue.
IWATA PISTOL-GRIP FILTER
Attaching directly to your airbrush and comfortable to hold, the Iwata Pistol-Grip Filter assists in delivering clean, dry air through its super-fine 5-micron filter. Built up moisture is evacuated through a spring-loaded release valve.
MAIN LEVER ADJUSTMENT
The needle spring adjuster (#8) gives you full control over the feel of the main lever’s back and forth movement. The more you tighten, the greater the main lever resistance. The looser it’s adjusted, the smoother the main lever will feel. Adjust to what feels comfortable to you.
NEEDLE TENSION ADJUSTMENT CUTAWAY
Using a small screwdriver you can easily adjust the needle pack- ing screw (PTFE) (#4) to add or release tension on the needle to customize your Custom Micron experience.
The crown cap physically protects the needle while spraying very fine lines. When spraying larger areas or stippling with the Custom Micron, we suggest removing the crown cap and screwing it onto the crown cap dock.
PRESET WITH CROWN CAP DOCK
A preset is a threaded adjusting screw mounted behind the handle which limits the distance the main lever can be pulled back. This provides accurate paint volume control and is especially useful for repetitive, precision work.
When stippling or for any reason you have to remove your crown cap, simply screw it onto the crown cap dock located at the end of the preset so it doesn’t get lost.
QUICK FLUSH CUTAWAY HANDLE
The quick flush cutaway handle allows quick paint clog removal without removing the handle or needle.
1. Grip the exposed needle chucking nut (#10) with your fingers.
2. Pull it back while simultaneously depressing the main lever.
3. Repeat this process several times until the airbrush is clog free and spraying normally.
• The increased paint flow past needle and nozzle tip removes many clogs.
• Don’t let the needle “snap” back into place. This could damage the nozzle.
