loving it until I took the needle out to clean. Now I've read the directions which suck. I've put together, taken apart, put together the other way, taken apart. No matter what I do I don't get any movement of the needle with the trigger moving back and forth. Help????

Sounds like you don't have the needle chuck tight...

Or you took it out with the needle and forgot to put it back in.

Also run the clean out needle

through the gun twisting it as you go to make sure the needle seal is not gunked up. Then tighten the needle holding nut onto the needle so that it will slide back and forth with the trigger.

Mike speaks wisdom... the only other thing I would add

is be sure the needle is completely clean and dry it off, so no residual thinned paint can make it stick inside the airbrush.

The VL/VLS can spray some amazing patterns, but when they're on a roll, they can make you want to scream and throw them out the window...

Same with the Testor Aztec, but I think the Paasche is a far more usable/durable unit.
