    I have a H & S focus @0.2 after a clean it has started to blow cleaner bubbles from the trigger port???? tried to re seat everything and it seemed a little better, but still blows the bubbles. Any help appreciated!

    Never mind, removal of all 'o' rings and an application of bees wax, seems to have improved all my air brushes, including the two cheap BD 180 and BD201 i got from eBay.

    @DaveG should be able to shed some light on possible reasons for this.

    I know next to nothing about H&S but bubbles from the trigger sounds like a bad seal from the needle packing seal.
    Use the beeswax sparingly it should really only be used on the threads.

    I only removed the 'o' rings from tip housings and only used a small amount of bees wax (only had a small amount lol) but it seems to have cured it, and the brush seems better than ever! well they all do!!
