I've had my Harder and Steenbeck Evolution for about a year now, and have been using it on and off. Until recently, I've noticed that the air pressure coming out of the feed isn't right for what is coming out of the air compressor. I know this because I've ran air through my airbrush without the nozzle on and the air coming out correlates with the psi on the compressor gauge. I'm really not sure on what to do. Could any one offer any expertise, and I'm a bit of a noob when it comes down to airbrushes. :smiling3:

Have you given the nozzle a really good clean?

If there's more air coming out when you take the nozzle off, then either the nozzle is partly blocked or the needle isn't moving back far enough. Check that the nut at the back that clamps the needle is tight and that the needle is moving when you pull the trigger back. I can't think of anything else it could be.

Thanks for your help Pete, if what you recommended fails then I will probabaly order a new nozzle and see of that works, I think the most probable issue is to do with the nozzle.
