I picked up the Harbor Freigh/Krause and Becker airless sprayer a few weeks ago, and I finally got around to spraying my built-ins. Everything more or less is going fine and although I haven’t used any other sprayers, as far as I can tell this one works quite well (with a Graco tip to replace the OEM). There’s only one problem: I cannot figure out how to take the gun apart to access and clean the filter in the handle (at least, I think that’s where it is).
The manual instructs me to remove a nut at the base of the handle (as far as I can tell, the nut above the threads that accept the hose nut). But that nut just turns and turns freely – I think it’s meant to allow the gun to swivel. There is another nut above that one, but it doesn’t seem to move at all – I applied about as much torque as I was comfortable doing before I got concerned about damaging the gun.
Does anyone have clearer instructions – or even a video – for how to access the gun filter?
