These airbrushes are well known for their reliability! Thayer & Chandler was one of the very first airbrush companies and spearhead a lot of innovation early on (like about a 120 years ago.) They also created the ever popular Vega 2000 which was a staple in the airbrush T-shirt industry through out the 80s and 90s.
Thayer & Chandler is now owned by Badger airbrush company. All T&C airbrushes are manufactured by Badger using the original designs. Made in the U.S.A. and highly dependable.
