Iwata airbrush table-top cleaning station?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

My co-worker and I are both learning how to use airbrushes (him for plastic models, me for the same + cake decorating ... don't worry, I use different airbrushes!).  In his research it was suggested he purchase the Iwata Airbrush Table-Top Cleaning Station.  He seems to like it a lot and I was wondering if anyone in the cake-world uses it.

Does anyone have this product or something similar?  Do you think it's worth it for cake decorating?  I do understand how to clean an airbrush without this!  I was just wondering if someone thinks it's an incredible time-saver or totally worth it, etc.

I have never used it, but I saw someone in a YouTube video use it and thought it looked very handy. I had an airbrush model that snapped off and it was nothing to just walk over to the sink and spray it out, but now I have one that screws on, and it is a PITB to unscrew it, and screw it back on, so I am definitely interested in getting something.... How much is that?

Not bad at all! I read that it is heavy enough to use as a stand, as well. That is handy. I ran across this video when researching though icon_wink.gif http://m.youtube.com/#/watch?v=pTPxp647Zac&desktop_uri=%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DpTPxp647Zac

IMO - it's just another piece of equipment that needs to be cleaned at the end of the day - and is more limiting than a plastic grocery bag taped to the counter edge.

 

I can go through a lot of grocery bags for $17.

 

PS: I have one collecting dust somewhere in my studio.....

Glad to be helpful.

 

And I'm looking forward to Austin!

Just hoping I can get my entry there in one piece.
