Crusader Posted May 21, 2020 Report Share Posted May 21, 2020 My lacquer spraying abilities are less than par and I'm wondering if anyone can steer me in the right direction The spray gun I've got is a Stutz FSG-410L HVLP and I've just watched a Youtube where the guy says a HVLP gun is not the best for a novice. He recommended Devilbiss FLG or SataJet RP and a few others that I didn't catch. Are these guns expensive, if so are they worth it? With the gun I've got, as far as I can determine I'm not getting good atomisation and don't know if I should increase or lower air pressure, etc etc. There are a lot of dials on a spray gun and don't know which way to turn them. Don't get me wrong I have things mostly sorted out, I'm hoping its just a few tweaks here and there My recent blunders may just have been due to high temperature and humidity but what happens is I spray a pass then when I do the next pass it drys the first pass where they overlap. Its like there's only air at the edges of the fan. This was more the case when the temperature was higher Air pressure - I used to have it set at about 5psi because that's what I thought they said at the shop where I bought the gun. But recently I looked at the manual and it says 15 to 30psi. So I have increased it to about 15psi Once again this is an area where I need more light on my work and I have recently purchased another lead light to remedy the situation. So any other recommendations or suggestions would be great cheers, Doug Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
