Default Spray Vid

Please read my intro here before you watch my video. I've never been in the habit of documenting my work but am trying to do more of this lately. This is NOT a video to teach anyone how to spray. I am simply sharing. In fact, I feel more like a kid turning in his homework for grading.

In reviewing the vid for posting I noticed I angle the gun a bit much and will be more attentive to that next time. This is exactly why PT makes me a better painter, I would never have recorded myself otherwise.

Feel free to offer any constructive criticism, though I don't need to tell anyone here that.

Do you backroll anything after you spray it? Get a wand with a swivel and learn how to use it you will never want to take it off.

I should have mentioned this is the dregs of the paint industry. I get $220 for the 3 bedroom TH you see here. So no I don't backroll here. Anywhere else and I would. Also being a color match I keep it just off of the carpet, which is always cleaned or replaced after I leave.

I don't wear whites either. I don't like how they fit, although I've been thinking about getting a pair of those Armed Work Wear pants everyone has been talking about. Anyway, nice vid! It takes guts to post a spraying video on this site...

I find it faster to take off switch plate covers and shove a little paper in there than to mask them off. On interiors, I put hardware in a large ziplock bag and tape it to the window of each room.

I agree it's unconventional. However prepping the carpet is unreasonable considering the expectations at this complex. Hence, the upside down gun.

Also being same color repaints I can put it on thinner than normal so runs are less of an issue where the vertical spray patterns meet the horizontal spray patterns.

Not the worst I have seen, at least you didn't wear the gun out on one wall like the last guy.If you are going to go back and forth all the way, get a wand and you can keep doing it instead of the double up of paint that you got when you changed to vertical. When you release the trigger you always need to tilt your gun away a little. This action will feather the laps together.
I have been spraying for years and I always try to get better at this, it's one of the most fun things I do.

Why is your sprayer working so hard? Is it clogged?

Nice ears, for one it's a 395 so if you're used to a bigger pump it cycles much more. I'm also bad about cleaning my filters so it's quite possible. It's also right next to the camera.

I've considered getting a larger pump but every time I haul this thing up 3 flights in 100 degree weather I'm glad I haven't.

Personally, even for cheap apartment repaints, I would rather roll with an eighteen, and use a six inch mini for most of the cutting. Its very, very fast, and why be around all that overspray?

It is fast but not as fast as the sprayer. I bring in a few drops for certain areas, mask as needed and wipe down counters before I leave. These units are all about speed, as long as there is no visible overspray on cabinets, hardware, vinyl or countertops it's ok. Everything gets cleaned afterwards anyway.

Also, about the extension, I'm concerned about being accurate cutting in against the carpet from a distance. If anyone has a link to a good video of someone using an extension with a swivel head please post it.

Yeah it's better to have your head buried in a cloud of overspray...Saving your back is for wimps!

And I'm talking about a 1',18" or 2' extension.

This guy does some good videos.

Thanks for the vid Josey but I still don't see how that would work in my situation. I'm not going to take the time to mask 1,000 l ft of carpet every apartment.
