Iwata Nozzle Wrench is a specialized tool designed for removing and tightening the nozzle on Iwata airbrushes, its design offering numerous advantages over the conventional nozzle spanner. Read the review for details.

Itíll work on more than just Iwata brushes too. I got one in an ďIwata airbrush cleaning kit,Ē which has all kinds of cleaning and maintenance accessories including brushes, lube, wipes and cleaners, along with this wrench (I donít own an Iwata, but bought the kit for the other supplies). I use it all the time on my Peak C 5 airbrush, and one of my single action badger brushes. If your needle orifice is tiny with a flat surface on each side, itíll probably work for you too,

Good call Russ. I tried it on my Tamiya HG Superfine airbrush and it worked really well.

Yes, the review states that caveat.

Unless Iím doing something wrong, it works fine on my Eclipse. The nozzle is connected to a brass tube thing, but can be unscrewed from that. I use it often.

Not sure how you are using it,just quoting the Iwata site caution.
