If you are using an airless paint sprayer the problem is that the pressure is too low. Turn it up if possible, if unit runs constantly, there is an internal pump problem. If not running constantly, and your unit uses an outlet filter, it is possible that it is fully clogged and not allowing the pressure that the pump produces to reach the spray line.

If you are using a conventional air compressor gun then your problem is still a lack of pressure and proper atomization. Turn up the air pressure and/or thin down your paint. A larger needle/nozzle combo may be necessary if you are using a thick paint. Additional fluid pressure may also be necessary.

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.

I am using DeVILBISS JGA_510 cinventional spray gun. The pressure pot system is showing constant pressure , but the gun is sputtering and not getting an even paint flow. I have changed paint lines, put on...


First start with the basics, whats the paint VISCOCITY ON A FORD 4 CUP ??
Or Does it run nicely off the stick you stirred it with??

If its thin enough to go up the tube and lines, whats the fluid tip and air cap combo your using?? maybe start with a EX fluid tip (1.8mm) and 30b air cap (cos that sprays everything!!) and reduce from there.

Whats the pot pressure?? Is it a KBII pot? cos they suffered with the air inlet blocking, so IT SHOWS GOOD PRESSURE, but doesnt have it in the pot!

Does it spray anything?? thinners?

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.

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!

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

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

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.
