Mr. Bama; Just a thought on cleaning; Q tip and lacquer thinner? I don't know if you have any O-rings between the bowl and the tip. the solvent would have to be confined to the bowl I suspect. (googone, crocus cloth, 0000 steel wool?)

Good luck

I wipe mine out with a Qtip and acetone but it has teflon packing and yours, being older, probably doesn't so I wouldn't fill it with any harsh solvents. I'd take off the tip (careful, it's easy to lose) and the needle before cleaning. Then, clean out the bowl with a Qtip and denatured alcohol or just soapy water and use the needle back-end-first to ream out any paint build up in the front of the brush.
