Today i tighened the nozzle of my sparmax too much and the nozzle broke apart. The threading area area is still stuck in there. Any suggestions on how to remove it?

PS has anyone tried a Sparmax compressor? Any comments?

I don't know if you have the same stuff there, but here in Sweden I have some drill bits that do what you are needing. You take and bore a bit into the material and take one of these special bits in reverse and it screws out the part that got broken off.

I am not familiar with the specific compressor, but if it is a like a "normal" industrial type you should be able to take of the fixture and replace it with another if the above doesn't work...but that is if it is just like the industrial type compressors...

Hope this made sense...
