Adjust spray gun


Need too be a bit more specific. Make, model, etc.

In general the upper adjustment knob is for the fan width and the lower knob is for adjusting amount of fluid delivered to the spray tip.

Hope this helps.

It has been so long since i used my spray gun i foregot what each knob is for


The knob on the left of the gun is your fan adjustment. turn it back towards you and it will shoot a stream of paint, turn it forward and it will shoot in a fan patter. The knob at the bottom by the air inlet is your air pressure adjustment. The knob on the back is to remove the needle and spring.
Cheers!

ORANGE PEEL


Orange peel can be a really hard problem to diagnose. There are a number of things that can affect the spray pattern. I would start by doing some test spraying. Your air pressure is going to be a factor as well as the ration knobs on the gun. I would start by increasing the air pressure to the gun. Keep in mind that if you're regulator is at the tank the actual pressure at the gun is going to change based on the length of hose used. Generally speaking, more air pressure will disperse the fluids better, better dispersal better/smoother coverage. I'd start there and then tune on the knobs to adjust it. Keep playing with it until you get a pattern you're happy with. Then when you're done with that write down how many turns on each knob, and exact pressure, length of hose etc. This way when you clean the gun you can get it exactly the way you want it. Different products will also spray differently. You may need to adjust for each step in the painting process. I just had to go through this on my new gun and it took about an hour and a pint of clear to get it spraying well. Check out tcpglobal.com for paint and supplies. They have great prices and they also have a forum on painting. I am a user of their products and forum.

I tried to adjust the regulator and the back just screwed off of the body - any ideas on how to prevent that?


Possibly you were trying to adjust the regulator without having air flowing through it. You must squeeze the trigger on the gun and have air constantly flowing through it otherwise the regulator knob is very hard to turn against the pressure inside it. To set an accurate pressure, squeeze gun trigger (while connected to air hose) to get air flowing... then twist regulator knob out (or in the "-" direction) until air flow reads 0 on the regulator gauge. Then start twisting regulator knob the other way until you reach the desired pressure on the regulator gauge. Also make sure the regulator is attached with air flowing the correct way through it. There should be an arrow somewhere on the regulator body which should be pointing toward your spray gun.

I bought they display set/floor model including this touch-up spray gun,which did not include the owners/instruction manual. A little help with knob/control functions would be most appreciated. Thanks


well there are two basic setups. one has two knobs on back side of gun and the other has two on back and a third on side. the first , the top knob will adjust your spray pattern while the bottom adjust needle in/out which controls how much material is allowed through. if there is a side knob, it controls spray pattern, while top back adjusts flow and bottom needle position

When I let go of the trigger the continues to spray a bit.


that packing is important, im not familiar with your perticular gun but i would deff replace it. also check that your spring under the fluid adjustment knob is not shot. and make sure you adjustment is correct. also if you damaged the needle or the peice the needle mates with this problem will deff occur expecially in a pressure feed gun. you should have gotten an parts break down of the gun when you bought it. if not you can go to the manufacturer website and get one for that model gun. good luck.

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.

hey do not see any answers so here you go -First I am not an apprentice on this matter- I spray cars as a hobbie- controls can be determined this way-follow these steps look at the trigger typically the needle that is lowest on the handle will be the air -top most will be paint.Paint will be adjusted by feel- the air is easy to adjust-back the knob off all the way- hold trigger on fully depressed(without being hooked to air) turn knob until you feel it touch trigger-stop- this is now adjusted.

I do recommend you lose the syphon system -gravity will sevre you better- you will use less paint and it is better for enviroment.

Go to web site for new book- best of luck -I will watch for you- what are you trying to paint?
