Hey paul its paul. I posted on here so hopefully you will give me some feedback. That is a very nice gun. One of my favorite. I'm guessing you know how to use a HVLP gun but if not here are a few tips. Make sure it is clean. Very clean. Your gun probably came with a manual, you should read it. It will help you greatly. First off, you want to have a regulator, about 40 psi is what i start with. You need a space you can practice some painting before laying down a new coat on the corvette. Haha. So next you will have a pressure adjustment knob, you want to start with this all the way closed and with the trigger pulled, just half way so just air is coming out adjust the air until it sounds even. Next you can try to spray. If it seems like the Fan, like the width is not enough you can adjust the fan, another knob, closer to the back of the gun, you ussually want about 5-6 inches of fan, if you are spraying at the normal 6-8 inches back from the piece. Last adjustment is the fluid adjustment, you want to put on a decent amount of paint, clear or primer, and not cause runs. This is going to take some practice because everyone moves at a different speed.

So you are going to have to play with your gun and figure out which knob does what. After that these instructions should get you a bit further, with some practice you will be laying down a nice paint job in no time.

Paul.

How do i fix spray pattern from being heavy on both ends on a binks m1g


I simply stumbled upon this article about spray patterns. Also, the tip, seat and spray cap MAY simply need a good cleaning.

I usually soak all related parts in lacquer thinner overnight to help loosen any build up, then wipe with a good, lint free cloth.


The article: Spray pattern problems solutions

Hope this helps.

Problems pressure fluid


The air hose between the tank and the gun is clogged, possibly by a bug nesting in it. The second place to look is the regulator on the pot. Insure that you have free airflow from there to the gun.

In trying to spray oil base paint, I get very low fluid flow (if any) from the cup to the gun. I've cleaned the gun and insured the hoses weren't clogged. Changing the adjustment valves...


How does it spray if you dump the paint out and put paint thinner in the cup? If it sprays paint thinnner, but not the paint, your paint is too thick. Thin it down by 25% and try a little. Keep adding thinner until the paint sprays out of the gun in an acceptable manner. Your gun probably has a 1.1,or 1.4 fluid tip. this is for spraying lacquers or automotive paints that are very thin. to spray oil based paint, your would need a 2.0 or 2.5 or bigger. not really what this gun was made to spray.

Air is coming out of the nozzle but the paint is not coming out.


There are different filter screen sizes for different thickness of paint. Even with proper screen size one might need to thin paint. I hope this information is helpful. Please give a rating if this was helpful. Good Luck and have a Great Weekend.

Binks bbr converting from pressure to siphon


Worked in paint repair shop for 18+ years. Every time we had that issue it was the wrong air cap. The particular model we always had trouble with was a Devilbiss JGA going from a pressurized system to a 1 quart cup. But the Devilbiss and Binks are quite similar.
The air cap from the pressurized system would actually cause a reverse pressure in the cup.
Both air caps were for this gun. Also the Devilbiss
rep said they should be interchangeable.
They weren't. Try a different air cap.
I'm kind of curious so please let me know if this works for your Binks.
Good luck!

New to spray painting and am spraying baked enamel paint


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.
