Hi Guys. I just got an Iwata RG3 and noticed a few things that have me scratching my head. First let me say that I have 3 other Iwata Airbrushes so I am in part basing my observations on my experience using those.

I am guessing all of the below are nothing-burgers, but just wanted to get the thoughts of any current Rg-3 users out there.

1) The aircap does not turn smoothly -- feels rough in spots (same thing with needle adjustment actually).
Is this normal for the RG-3?. All my other Iwatas are very smooth

2) Aircap turns very easily when jam nut is backed off -- very difficult to lock down jam nut without having the aircap turn slightly. --- This may also be normal as I see in Paul's video, he seems to have a firm grip on the air cap while he tightens the jam nut..

3) Hard to adjust aircrap while airflow is on as suggested in Paul's viedo -- After re-re-watching his RG-3 viedo, it seems like he was really wrestling with turning the thing while spraying as well-- so again, not too concerned, but just want to see what other peoples experience is.

Anyone have any experience and/or advice with the above?
