    I have a fairly new Badger 105 (<20 uses) and noticed that when some cleaner spilled out of the cup that bubbles were forming between the body and the first screw-on nozzle, verified not cross-threaded and is snug. Does not affect painting with Vallejo paint.

    Any thoughts?

    Put chapstick or beeswax on threads to seal it up. I am fairly new to airbrushing, but I wouldn’t think it would really cause a problem. As long as you clean off the reducer/cleaner so it doesn’t blow it on your work.

    I’d scrub the threads with an interdental brush (they’re gentle on the brass) then just a little chapstick as @VanGogo has mentioned. Snug it up and it should be sufficiently sealed.
