Question about Air Tools & Compressors
Paint is not flowing compressor works but no paint. What am I doing wrong?
Probably have a blockage in your airbrush. Disassemble the air brush and clean thoroughly. Be sure to disassemble and clean after every use session. Be sure to mix the paint. If the paint has settled, it may be too thick to spray.

Here is some information to solve the problem.
Fish Eyes: A surface depression or crater in the wet paint film. Fish eyes are caused by repulsion of the wet paint by a surface contaminant such as oil or silicone. The depression may or may not reveal the surface under the paint. Make sure the surface is clean.
If you are going to be painting any aluminum, you are going to need an etching primer. This primer can also be used on steel. It is two-parts (not like epoxy, though) and tends to "bite aggressively" into the metal. It really stinks to have your paint stick well to your primer, but the primer releases from the metal. One of the major benefits is that you can paint over the primer in 1/2 hour, about the time it takes you to clean your gun and mix the paint.
OTHER PAINT RELATED STUFF
Additives: You can get anti fisheye additives, hardeners, flatteners, catalysts, metallics, metal flake, pearls, and reducers to mention a few. Get an anti fisheye thats compatible with the paint you use.
Masks Use a good quality dual cartridge mask for all work. Don't skimp, get the charcoal cartridges, they stop most aromatic vapors.

SOURCE: paint sprayer won't pump
Ok, go to campbel hausfeld web site and download a manual for your sprayer : http://www.chpower.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/XManuals?langId=-1&storeId=10051&catalogId=10001
Find your model number and look at parts view. Pay paticular attention to the inlet and outet valves. They must be absolutely clean to function. These pumps must be thoroughly cleaned when finished.
