    Hi, I manage a spray booth in a small factory in MO. We paint small flat magnets laid out on paper and good atomization is essential to balance getting a good finish and coverage without putting so much paint on that the parts stick to the paper. Recently some factor changed that we can't put a...

    Hi Everyone, I recently purchased a 115 and just completed my first kitchen cabinet job with it. It would be SO helpful to know the various coatings and settings others use to get the best results. For example, I sprayed B-M Fresh Start primer and B-M Advance. I'm using an Elite gun and this is...

    Greetings for the UK, my name is Pete from the YouTube channel PaintHQ.. hopefully I’m welcome here as a professional painter in the UK that’s embraced spraying (Airless, HVLP and AAA)..

    I am a woodworker/finish carpenter and my painter is so backed up (very happy for him!) that I am starting to do my own finishing. I have always done my own clears/stains and painted my more "utility grade" projects but never painted my own cabinets/built-ins. My painter can get a much better...

  8. General Painting Discussion
    Has anybody worked with this in a brush and roll environment? Is it too thick for a 490 to shoot it with very little reduction or extender? What would you thin it to on a HVLP pressure pot rig? Has anybody used it on a non-hot tire concrete surface? I really need to demo it
  9. Surface Preparation and Application
    I recently accepted a job to repaint some very old and twice painted metal cabinets in a fine home. I took a drawer to the nearest SW and they matched the powder blue very well. Without testing we all assumed that they had a very slick coat of oil based paint on them. There was a lot of yellow...

    Just got my first HVLP - Graco 9.0 4-stage turbine. Totally used to airless & not having to thin my product. For those of you that spray with an HVLP, what needle size do you typically use for oil enamels and how much do you thin them? Do you use straight thinner, or Penetrol as well? Thanks...
