scosch is on a distinguished road
Sure. Ive had the same pumps for several years. I normally leave them in the cans and they work fine like that up to a point. After more than a year, I have had the epoxy crystallize in the pump. But by pulling (they still sort of worked) solvent (I believe acetone, maybe lacquer thinner, check West for proper solvent) into the pump and letting it sit overnight, then pumping some fresh solvent in until clean, they were back to good as new. Just remember they are calibrated for West epoxy and may not be right for other brands.
