Thanks for the great review, Keith. I ordered two of these from Dixieart a week ago and they're on the way. It's nice to know that they do what I wanted them for before I get them! I can't wait to try them out for myself. It's a very economical way to get Custom Micron - like performance out of a Revolution or HP.

Hi,

Please tell me, is this MAC valve essentialy the same thing that comes with the Iwata HP-CH (Highline) brushes? I have one of those and it has a knob similiar to this but already as part of the airbrush body. Just curious...

Thanks!

Hi Rob,
Yes, that's exactly what this is. Your MAC valve is built into the airbrush so you don't need one of these. It's a great addition to any Iwata that doesn't have one though.
