My first impression unboxing the Infinity airbrush was a good one. This airbrush looks sweet, in fact it is probably one of the best looking airbrushes Ive ever seen. Unfortunately in my case the Harder & Steenbeck Infinity airbrush that I received did not perform as well as it looked! The first cup of paint loaded into my Infinity was a well reduced cup of Urethane based House Of Kolor SG105. Within minuets I ran into issues with the urethane based paint eating through the cup seal. A small bit of Teflon tape on the threads was a quick fix. Soon after I started having the same issues with the head end of the the airbrush where there are two seals. The nozzle seat seal was fine it is actually made of solvent resistant material, the secondary seal was a different story. It is the seal that keeps air from escaping through the threaded area of the air cap. Some more Teflon tape fixed the second seal failure. By this time I am really upset that such a beautiful airbrush that was originally designed to spray lacquers is giving me so many headaches.

Unfortunately these two fairly upsetting issues were not the end of my issues with the Harder & Steenbeck Infinity airbrush. The third and final breakdown was a quite serious one. The post that holds the air valve that fits into the body started spinning in the airbrush. It was completely free. By this point I am lit, but did manage to fix this issue to. To be quite fair it was obvious I either got a lemon, or the solvents in the paint I was using broke the adhesive, or whatever they use to set the post. Harder & Steenbeck was more than willing to take a look at the brush though I never found the time to send it out. Besides I fixed the problem with just a drop of Locktite. Since fixing it the airbrush has worked very well since.

The Infinity is not my go to airbrush. Though I do still keep it on the rack and do use it from time to time. Once I fixed the three major issues I had with the airbrush it works quite well. In fact the airbrush performs way above average with all issues being ironed out. The detail that this airbrush can lay down is quite impressive. In fact I can get just as fine detail from the Infinity airbrush as I can from a CM-C+ Micron airbrush with a .18 set up. The atomization that the Infinity produces is also quite impressive. It is overall a great airbrush when things are working as they should. Would I recommend this airbrush to anyone. Well yes I would. I do believe the main issue I had with this airbrush (the post breaking free.) Was more than likely a freak thing. I have read lots on this airbrush from allot of very reputable artists and have not heard of the same happening to anyone else, just my luck. So I think it’s safe to say you are not going to have the same issue if you purchase one. I would not recommend it to anyone using solvent based paints. If you are working with water based paints you should not have any issues with the seals failing.

    This airbrush has been good to me. It has a smooth action for infinite control. It also allows me to go from high detail with smaller nozzles to more heavy work by swithching to larger nozzles. I have nothing bad to say about the Infinity airbrush
