The size tip you use depends on what you are spraying, how thin/thick it is and if you something like Flotrol to make it flow on the work better. Tip sizes are given as a decimal number and here's how to read them.
Example: .517 (the one most people, including you, need)
- The 5 means you'll get a ten inch swath of paint with the tip 12 inches from the work surface. 5's are for general painting, 2's and 3's are usually used for trim work.
- The 17 is the diameter of the orifice (.017) the paint passes through to get properly atomized. The larger the orifice, the thicker the medium you can effectively spray. .013's are used for very thin things like stain. .015's & .017's are for latex paints, .019's are for enamils, and .021 - .027 are reserved for thicker things like elastomerics.
Most likely if you are using an interior, latex paint, you'll need the .517 tip. Be sure to strain your paint so you'll get an even fan of paint and the best results. Even brand new paint has sand impurities in it that will effect the tips performance or plug up the filters.

To fix this problem you need to turn up the pressure both at the wall(coming from the air compressor) and at the gun. I would suggest 10 more psi at the wall and 5 at the guns but you can play areound to find whats best for you.

first problem is the waterbase paints ( ****) the other is how did you mix your paint , you cam trap air in the paint if you padle or stired it without a shaker mixer air will gas out of the paint, tofix this use a foam brush to flaten air bubbles
