T'was not to be. Unlike my Paasche VL, the Omni has a cutaway in the handle to
give access to the needle knob, but this seems a rather superfluous feature.
In the picture on the Dixie Art webpage it shows this clearly, but I was under
the impression this was to gain access for fluid adjustment without the need to
remove the handle. Now I find it's merely to enable you to pull the needle
back for cleaning. Who cares? When it's time to clean the thing, I take it
apart anyway. I feel access for adjustments would make a lot more sense. It
seems more than a little backward to have to take it apart to adjust it, but
you can clean it when it's all together....what am I missing?
When once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your
eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to
return. --Leonardo Da Vinci
