What is making my sprayer drip? Answered

I've replaced all the O rings, so now the only drip is in the spray.  About 1/3  of the cone of spray just sprays crazy and dribbles from the hole in the top  of the domed piece that screws on.  The hole looks round to me.  I can't tell if the inside of the dome is uneven.... it's pretty small and dark in there.  I've cleaned it with Barkeeper's Friend on a Q-tip, but there is still some staining.  If the problem is inside, how would I smooth it out?

If the problem is in the male part,  what should I be looking for that might cause this?

Could be a hairline fracture in that part that expands with the pressure inside the sprayer.

Could be some meneral build up from the water. Soak it in some vinager to loosen it up and try to use a Qtip.

Thank you for your thought on the problem. Usually vinegar works - especially in hard water areas, but sadly it has had no effect.
