Question about Air Tools & Compressors
I'm marrying an Accuspray 10 series cup gun to a Wagner 2900 4-stage HVLP turbine (8 CFM). Neither the gun or the turbine provide any means of air flow control. The gun has a .9mm tip and a #7 air cap. It will be used for spraying Valspar nitrocellulose lacquer for cabinets. With the set-up as it stands, do you think I will need to be able to control my air-flow. Accuspray makes an air regulator, but it's for taming the air that comes from a compressor. The inlet fitting is for a 1/4'' NPT fitting, not the turbine fitting. Any suggestions or do I really need the air regulator?
Thanks in advance.
You shouldn't have to control air flow - just adjust fluid to provide a good spray pattern. If you feel you need to slow down application rate you can buy a garden hose shut-off valve at your local hardware store that will thread onto your air line just before the quick disconnect at the gun.
