Are you straining the paint through cheese cloth or some other type of strainer ? Trash in the paint building up around the tip could cause it, straining will eliminate that. The return spring, or the grommets depending on what type of gun your using could be wore out keeping the needle from seating closed all the way. Is it when you stop spraying or during. May need to change the pressure setting or tip size for the material you are spraying, again, depends entirely on your specific situation as to what could be causing the problem. But these are things you can try. The paint store would probably be able to point you in the right direction if it comes down to changing tips. Might be worth a call to save yourself more aggravation. hmmm,, goes to show how observant I am,, sanchezauto,, are you painting cars,, with a conventional cup gun ? All of any of the above could apply. And if your painting cars you sure don't want a spitting gun messing you up. (-8

What is this I think it's an air compressor fitting or something

Its a filter for an end of a paint gun. it collects excess oil mainly with moisture and whatever. It is the last filter your paint goes through before spraying your product. Very helpful if you're painting something nice.

Can you use latex paint with central pneumatic 47016

You can use any liquid that can be thinned to a consistancy that will spray uniformly out of the gun. Use the recommended thinner on the paint can to get the paint where it will spray evenly. Paint conditioiners help a lot but are not always necessary. Probably more important is that you completely clean all parts when you are done.

I was using the paint gun attatchment and then it didn't want to spray paint anymore. It just drips the paint out of the centre hole in the nosel.

it could be blocked, take the paint out of it and fill it up half way with meths or terps and give it a shake then plug it in and try spraying the meths trough.

Water coming out airbush from hose

An in-line water separator should be used before the supply line, a good air filter wouldn't hurt either.

The air is flowing back into the color barrell

First of all we must know how is works,that is air enters the brush causing a vacuum at the paint hose,where the hose is dip into the paint barrel,so paint will fill the vacuum where it will attend the brush,so if the air mechanism in the brush is glogged air will flow in the paint barell.Solution is to dismentle the brush and clean the air mechinism
