I think it should be possible to use one as a roughly equivalent conventional gun should run OK at 9 CfPM . I ran such a gun for years on 9.

How do you take this hvlp gun apart for proper cleaning of the spray gun?


I've found over the years the least amount of times you can tear a spray gun completely apart the better. Usually a real good 'flushing' with lacquer thinner will suffice. I will take the air cap off and let it soak in thinner to dislodge any build up but other than that, I simply run thinner thru till it runs clear out the tip.

I also 'back flush' which involves having thinner in the cup and the air supply hose attached. the air pressure should be adjusted quite a bit lower than what you use for spraying paint.

Then you place a clean shop towel or rag over the air cap of the gun and pull the trigger. This forces air back into the paint cup 'back flushing' the gun. Then take the rag away from the cap and pull the trigger again to run thinner thru the gun the normal way.

IF you still want to tear the gun apart for cleaning you can hopefully get some idea with this video link;

Bad air flow. it doesnet seem to be spraying out of the fan correctly. In fact, i don't even get a noticable fan spray. it just sprays a round pattern no matter what i do.


Check none of the air holes int he cap are blocked. Also there is a small wheel adjuster on the left side of the gun, or perhaps even on the top which will adjust fan spray shape.

Of course you need about 30-40 PSI pressure at the gun end for it to spray properly, as well as a compressor with about 12-15cfm air flow rating to use a HVLP gun efficiently.

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.

How to adjust the controles on my hvlp spray gun


your top adjuster is for the air (or to adjust the fan of the gun) turn it to make the fan wide or small.

the next one right below the top is for the material (paint, stain, etc) turn it in for less material or out for more. if you unscrew this one all the way you will be able to access the needle.

these is the two mane adjusters on a hvlp gun. you may have another adjuster on the bottom of the handle. this is your air presser regulator and will control the amount air going through the gun but i always use my own.
hope this helps

Spray painting operation advice for Binks mach 1 hvlp spray gun


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.
