Default sprayer question

hi guys finally i got a paint sprayer but let me clarify i'm new to spraying so i ended up picking up a tradeworks 150(ok i know is a homeowner pump)but for a beginner like me i think is fine..so i'm planning to use to ceilings but mostly to doors & trim.. anyway today i set up 4 doors in a garage and painted them and wow !!! i painted them in 4 minutes and i did up and down and inmediately left & right so very fast i said to myself you should have picked a sprayer a long time ago it makes my life more easy..so my question is this the manual says it maximun tip size 515..can i use a 513 or 511 tip since i'm going to paint a doors jamb 3 1/2" and base moulding 5" i mean i don't want to overspray a lot..or any other advice..thanks a lot guys

Welcome to the world of spraying.

Look at the last 2 numbers on the tip size...nothing bigger than x15. The first number is the fan width, double it. So a 315 is a 6" fan width. A 515 is a 10" fan. The last 2 numbers is the hole size in the tip. Bigger number, bigger hole for thicker material...smaller number, smaller hole for thinner material.

I officially use the Tradeworks 150 far more than my other pumps. I do 210 and 311 on trim/doors.
