Hi Folks. This is my first visit to this site and forum. I'm Al and I live in Northern Wisconsin where I've been a full time taxidermist for over 40 years. I use Testor's Aztek airbrushes in my work. For some time now I have been desperately searching for a source of some of the "old style" caps for the syphon bottles. The old style cap featured a rigid, right angled nipple. The newer style has a swiveling ball nipple. This version gives me fits due to clogging and unreliable flow of the medium. I have no such problems with the old style cap. I have spoken to the manufacturer in Rockford Illinois on more than one occasion and voiced my dissatisfaction with the "new, improved" syphon cap design. The rep has told me that he has heard this claim before but, sorry, there's no way he can get me a supply of the old style caps. So, I'm wondering, is there anyone out there who, maybe, has some of these old Aztek bottles and caps and no longer uses them? If so I'd like to buy 'em. You may contact me directly at [email protected]
or by telephone at 715-588-3254 or 715-892-6071.
