Topic tags/keywords: spray paint nozzles tip

A month or so ago I bought a can of that “spray any angle” cans of Rustoleum spray paint. For years all you had to do to clear out the nozzle was turn it upside down and wait for air to come out. There, the nozzle is clean.

Now when you turn it upside down you still get paint. How are you supposed to clear the nozzle? I figured it out finally after a couple clogged up on me. Now as soon as I am done spraying I remove the nozzle and dunk it in a little paint thinner and hit it with the air hose. Seems to work good.

Meanwhile I wrote to the company and complained about it and asked for a few nozzles so I could finish using the cans I had without useful nozzles. I guess they wanted to keep a satisfied customer. They sent some.

Be careful what you ask for.

Cool story. Nice to hear there are a few companies that still service their clients after the sale. Just put them in a ziploc and place them on the shelf. Before you know it you will need more.
