    Shop Tip

    A surefire way to clean aerosol nozzles
    In my shop I frequently use spray cans of paint and finish and I don’t like wasting the can’s contents or pressure to clear the nozzle. Instead, I use a can of WD-40, as shown, to easily and completely clean the nozzle. ---David Buskirk, Ray, Ohio---
