For the most efficient use of the gun, always make a careful check that all parts are the proper size and type, and are in perfect working order before operating. The following items can serve as a checklist: Manifolds and Regulators: The CFM capacity should be at least one and one half (1.5) times the total capacity required by the equipment. A separate regulator should control the atomizing air and all gauges should be readable and in good working condition. Moisture and Oil Traps: In order to assure the least amount of contamination of the Gel coat, moisture and oil traps should be installed and drained daily (minimum) on all air lines at the spray booth. Traps must be installed on the lines at least 25 feet away from the air compressor. Quick Disconnects: Quick disconnects are not recommended for airless or high pressure systems, and may reduce the volume of air and fluids passing through them. If they are used, they should be the largest size available. Hoses: Hoses are used only for delivering air from a regulator on a main air line and fluids from the fluid pump to the gun. The standard hose length is 25 feet and should never exceed 50 feet. Hose capacity should match the volume delivery and pressure demanded by the gun when the trigger is pulled. Hoses must be capable of delivering the material at the volume and pressure rates dictated by the gun. There will always be a pressure drop from one end of the hose to the other.

I spoke to a friend who was a spraypainter in his last job, apparently due to the thickness of the paint, I needed a larger nozzle on the gun. I couldnt get a nozzle to suit this gun so I purchased another gun with a cuple of different size nozzles. All seems to be working fine now.

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.

Yes is the short answer, but you will need to use a latex wet edge extender (X.I.M) makes one most paint store should carry it. You can also use a bit of water, no more than 10% or as detailed on the label.
Keep adding the extender or water until it stops shooting spatter an has a finer mist.

My #91011 One Quart is not a gravity feed, it is air compressor fee fed. My problem is the nozzle will not fan out . It only blows a round spray mist. ?
