Fits perfect. Turn upside down & squeeze
All good but what is difference with having it in the cup?
if you tear down your brush to clean it & your compressor is already turned off & too lazy to attach a quick connect?
I guess just for fun
I'm weird about keeping my brushes spotless. Maybe I think that if my brush is clean & working properly I can't blame my mistakes on the equipment haha.
That explains that then!!!!! I have always been advised not to pull them apart unless essential!! I strip mine as much as my wife does........
would that not be a Micron Enema? I would think if you soaked the head in Restorer, and then did this, the "pressurized" flush might get some extra nitty gritty out.
What year is your Micron? Mine has lines on the nozzle base.
Greg, you mean the actual nozzle, or the silver base of the head assembly? All of my Iwata Micron heads are smooth, but all the newer Olympos Micron heads have several lines milled around the diameter...
The base. 1d on the diagram.
Interesting, the Olympos heads I have have those lines (just like the drawing), but my .18 Iwata's do not. I have a .23 Iwata due here on Wednesday, and will be curious to see if it has lines, or no lines .
I also own some Olympos. Maybe I got them switched. Does your micron base have the 3 smaller holes or larger?
I sold my V1 CM-C+ and got a V2, but I put V1 head on it. Saving the new head as a spare. They look the same to me (no lines). I think I've read threads on here that the V1 and V2 heads are the same. I can't tell a difference.
Have to check in the morning...
I am pretty sure the V1 and V2 heads are the same, it is the newer Olympos heads that are suppose to be different. Something about the way the air passage is shaped...
I'm sorry Dave. I had it backwards as usual. Just went and checked. My Iwata is smooth. Forgive my knuckle-headedness. DOHH!
The L3 is the large 3 holes with stripes on the head. The S3 is the 3 small holes with no lines on head. The S3 is like Iwata Micron.
Yes sir. I used to know that. My mind decided to take today off.
While I have you fine people on here. Is there any way to tell the difference between a .18 and .23 nozzle? Markings or anything?
difference? Big hole, and little hole
I knew that was coming. I've had nozzles off my .23 Olympos and .18 Iwata at the same time. Yeah I know that's not smart. But I'm wondering if I've got them backwards. I would think there has to be an ID mark on the nozzle but maybe not. I'll get them under a loupe later and see if I can tell.
