  • Just received mine. The cover on the brass sponge is not held in place in any way. I tried to use the brass sponge, but pressing lightly on it makes the cover lift off and rest on the iron as the sponge rolls back. It would be a minor annoyance except I will need to do this like 100 times per project. Just wondering if I have it seated wrong or if it requires duct tape? If I try to bend the cover even slightly the gold paint starts to crack. Any one else solve this?
