Can anyone give me an idea on an airbrush to use with materials you don't necessarily want to spray thru your good airbrush or do you use one AB to do it all?

Yup would second that the Veda 180 is a great Air brush for the money even got air pressure adjust at the nozzle [biggrin][thumb][thumb][thumb][thumb][thumb][thumb]

I keep a double action Badger 150 for my solid colors and clear coats.  Metallics, I keep a single action Badger 200.

Most of the same parts, no cross contamination of metallic particles and a single action agrees with me using straight metallic.

It works for me.

Metallics are very laborious to fully clean out of an internal mix airbrush and wasteful on thinner.

This way it can be clean but not have to be meticulously clean to not have to worry about tinting or clear coating and having metallic particles show up to ruin the job.

If it wasn't for that aspect, I would keep just the 150.

Almost every hobby shop I have travelled to that carried airbrushes, carried Badger 150/200 parts.

The 150 is a pretty versatile brush being double action plus having three sizes of tips and special air nozzles to play with, but with it being internal mix as well as the 200, it is difficult to flush.

What I am doing is half the approach when dealing with metallics.  They actually need an external mix which tend to be a more simple brush with less parts involved in cleaning.  If I didn't get a deal on the 200 being used, I would have looked for an inexpensive and simple external mix for the solid metallic tasks.

You could get one of the cheap Chinese copies for klear/varnishes/primers, where you don not need to spray fine lines/patterns. [biggrin]
