Re: how to set up spray gun

there could be a number of reason for that,
viscosity, air setup, mixture opening...

Re: how to set up spray gun

thanks to Bridges and his advices I have managed to fix problem with my air pressure (faulty air regulator).

So i have another question regarding viscosity. How to make it right? I dont have viscosity cup so I need advice, how should it look when you mix it. How is it suppose to run of the stick that I am using to mix material. Drops or is it suppose to leak?

Re: how to set up spray gun

When mixing paint you need to follow the manufacturers guide lines.

I mix paint I use paint mixing cups which show the mixing ratio's.

What paint type are you using, 2k?

Re: how to set up spray gun

Bridges

At the moment I am spraying wooden door in my house. Paint is on the oil base (I hope you use the same term in England). And manufacturers guide says put 10% thinner on the amount of paint you are using. That all.... Sadly.

I havent got any viscosity cup (Ford, Zinc etc.) so i must do it "by the eye".

So my question is how is the mixed paint suppose to "run" of the mixing stick?

the nozzles on spray cuns controls the amount of paint flow, you can alter air pressure and spray pattern but nozzle size is critical
1.3 is normal and I use a 1.4 on my lacquer gun, although they are HVLP.
think 1.8 on a suction feed gun

can pick up guns like this for 20
remember not contaminating and applying paint with precission is essential.
