disposable tip sizing

Post by Mr.Martian on Mon May 23, 2016 11:57 am

I've been buying disposable tips from cnc only so far, and I've found they all seem to come up big. As in, I'm using a 3rl tip on a 5 needle, 7tip on a 9 etc.

Just seems they fit snugger, work better that way... I'm probably missing something here...

I use CNC brand and yes you are right, there is a bit of trial and error, as a general rule of thumb if using a diamond tip you go down a size, or if you are using a long taper you go down a size, for example a powerline 1207rl long taper fits in a CNC 5VT, a Pin Up 1209rs will fit in a CNC 7VT but you are dipping more, the ink doesnt feed properly (found that out yesterday)

I use VT or DT for lining and shading, that way I dont have to keep so many tubes in stock, the CNC brand seem to have the smallest end that I have found.

i'm short on supplies,
but lil while ago i've used 7l needle on a 3dt. cheap plastic ebay

its all i had, but it fit snug and worked.
i don't remember having problems with inkflow, but i'm gonna stop do because if its too tight i'm sure there will be ink issues, even tho i don't think i saw any.

so you want some excess tube for ink reasons, and not too tight, is what i am gathering

better to not go too small with the tube even if the neddle fits?

Yea, cheers reset. I hadn't considered the ink flow into the bargain. Makes sense more needles needing more ink, so space around them in the tip to supply it. I guess no point strangling it gonna run out of line very quickly. And it's probably just my inexperience thinking the lines were better with a snugger fit, surely it should be held in place fine by the bands...

that was my logic too, snugger fit, less movement in the tip... but i guess there is a reason why the tips are so much bigger than the needle it was wade for.

thanks
