    the .35's have been converted to a brass base with screw on tip (they used to be a 1 piece brass item) - they are meant to be left alone. They are marketed and sold as a one piece item. The .5's are still a one piece brass part.

    I briefly went through the posts and would like to chime in. If you are hearing a pulsating air sound it most likely isn’t the brush. Are you using a compressor with no air reserve tank and regulator? This would cause the pulsation in air as the piston drives up and down.

    As for the bubble in the cup. This is because the head needs snugged down more. And yes, if you soaked the O ring with the brush it would be best to replace all of them. There are three in that brush. At the plunger in the air intake and on the head. They will swell and leak.

    As for the nozzle getting stuck! It happens on mine once in a while. I usually place some paper towel over it and wiggle it quite aggressively with my fingers to dislodge it. With this brush you can leave it together and use a dental brush and long tipped liner brushes to clean inside and not really new to pull it apart. Use nail polish remover to clean it or lacquer thinner and the throughly rinse with water. When you get little floating particles of paint in the water in the cup, dump it rather than spraying. That way they won’t get lodged in the nozzle.

    Also do not remove the titanium part of the nozzle from the brass. They are glued in on the threads. White what I am not sure. Hope this helps. Don’t be afraid to give that head a good tightening. That is why the O ring is there. Not just to seal but to prevent over tightening.
