The issue happened to many airbrushes using cone shaped nozzles: badger 175.

I tried putting it into fire and the freezer, but none of those methods worked.

  • Its not stated clearly in the question, the nozzle cone is stuck in the cap? If this is happening a lot you are over torquing the cap when assembling.

The Taiwanese factory sent me an email to help me fix an airbrush having the nozzle stuck in the head cap 15 years ago.

The solution is to use a needle-nosed plier:

  1. Place the needle-nosed plier's left tip on the left edge, and the right tip of the needle-nosed plier into the nozzle's hole. Grip using little force.
  2. Place the needle-nosed plier's right tip on the right edge, the left tip of the needle-nosed plier into the nozzle's hole, grip it using little force.
  3. The nozzle falls off!

    the tool in the images looks like needle-nosed pliers, not a clamp

    Be careful when using this method. If the pliers/clamp has angled jaws you are likely to damage the nozzle cone which can lead to an uneven spray pattern.
