Question Clogged spray can nozzles - replacements?

Anyone know where to get replacement spray can nozzles? Particularly the blue type that has the little pin in it.

I was gonna say the same suggestion. Then put the nozzle on a can of brake clean and spray through it to clear all the debris.

Necropost of the day goes to Johnny. I was in Weymouth earlier today.

Acetone works very well for cleaning out most substances from the nozzles.

Always after use , turn the can upside down and spray to clear the nozzle of paint to prevent this .

Soak the tips in acetone, then use an aceletylene torch tip cleaner. Good as new

I, too, have had luck soaking them in lacquer thinner, then twisting a very small drill, say a number 72(by hand of course) through the nozzle from the side and the bottom. A drill small enough to not enlarge the hole.
