Question about Bernina Sewing Machines
It depends on what kind of spray gun you have. If you have a HVLP gun the pressure doesn't have to be as high, but you need a compressor that will keep up. The pressure is usually pretty low on these guns, about 15 PSI or less. The paint manufacture will usually give you a recommended pressure to paint their paint. A normal (old style) suction type gun takes more pressure, about 50 PSI. If you are asking this to decide on a compressor size, you will find that a one horse motor on a two cylinder compressor will not keep up. The newer supposedly five horsepower compressor will not keep up consistant pressure either. You need a five horsepower that runs on 220 and driving a belt driven two cylinder compressor minimum. You can get by on less, but have to wait half way during a coat on a car to wait on the compressor to catch up. This may be o.k. if you are just going to paint one car, but if you are looking to do this consistantly, then I would get a five horsepower motor on a two stage compressor. Make sure you drain the air tank of water and use a good air filter to remove moisture from the air before trying to paint. Hope some of this helps you.
