Glad to see this feedback on the low pressure tips.

@RH That door looks good, Dan. I thought I'd spotted a major blemish when I enlarged the picture, but turns out it's on my screen. That's what ya get with grandkids and a touch-screen computer. Little chocolate eating heathens.

Looks good Dan.
The curved side of the seat goes toward the tip, the seal side to the gun. Hope this helps.

Now that's funny right there.

Maybe that's why I always need a mallet to get them in... hmmmm...

My SW Rep was telling me you need to have a regulator at your gun in order to ensure the correct PSI for these tips. Anyone else heard anything like that?

Most SW Reps don't know crap.

I had one that told me the reason Emerald didn't hide well was because I used a microfiber roller cover. He said I needed to use a polyester roller cover.

He might have been drunk, high or something. I will never use a polyester cover ever again.

Used a new FFLP tip for spraying a door this morning. Changed the seat and tried it out. Stupid thing spit like crazy. I threw in a blue tip with the FFLP seat and finished the first coat on the door. When I tried showing My PPG paint rep the problem I was having the FFLP tip, the tip was spraying fine with no spits or lines. I was spraying breakthrough with a 312 FFLP tip with a Graco 495 and had the pressure around 1/3 of the way up. Wasn't much over spray and the paint laid down nice. I would defiantly buy this tips again. Will post pic of the door tomorrow when its done.

I have a feeling that the blue tips pushed the seat into position stopping the spits. They may be a bit bigger. Going to measure them to find out.

No regulator was needed

The seats are definitely different.

Would it be worth gently lubricating the seat to improve the seal and/or using a new tip housing?

Good to know it wasn't just me having the spitting issues - I guess.
