For those of you interested in helping (and learning from my mistakes). Thought I’d post a video and some pics of my setup. I have no one here to tell me if I’m doing it right or wrong, so figured I’d ask my woodworking friends online. The two pics below are my spray gun and my compressor. Its probably on the small end, as far as compressors are concerned – but when I bought it, it said it works great with HVLP.
I am using a 2.0 needle (for paint). I’ve thinned the paint down with water (stirred until mixed completely). I’m spraying at 35 psi. To set the psi, I have the trigger pulled on the gun.
And here is the video of me trying to get the right fan/flow. Sorry the video is a little shaky – I’m recording with one hand and spraying with the other. Also, the video gets loud about half way through it (when the compressor turns on), so don’t have your volume all the way up.
I’m just curious if this is looking right, or if something needs to be fixed, tweaked, etc?
