Got another one on order, and a nozzle.  But I am having the darndest time getting the slight bend outta this needle.  Tried the rolling on cardboard technique on saw on YouTube.  Tried rolling it on glass like I've done in the past.  The .3mm needle of the HP-C Plus just doesn't wanna budge.  Thoughts?  Only have to wait a few more days for the new one.  Just dumbfounding.

I'd just wait for the new one to be honest and scrap the old one. It's very difficult to get them straight again once they've been bent in my opinion...

There is a tool called SharpenAir that claims to straighten and polish needles.  I did look at it when it first came out but passed in the end because of the price.  You need to repair around four needles to make it worthwhile, which seemed too expensive for me specifically, I simply don’t use the airbrush enough to bend needles that often.

 

Cheers,
