For a professional looking finish paint must be thinned. If the manufacturers
recommendations on thinning are not available, the following can be used as a
general guide: Water based paints (emulsions) - 10-20% water
Oil based paints (gloss) - up to 10% white spirit thinners
Cellulose paints - up to 50% cellulose thinners
3. HANDLING THE GUN
The first requirement for a good resultant finish is the proper handling of the gun.
The gun should be held perpendicular to the surface being covered and moved
parallel to it. The stroke should be started before the trigger is pulled and the
trigger should be released before the stroke is ended. This gives accurate control
of the gun and material.
The distance between gun and surface should be 6 to 12 inches depending on
material and atomizing pressure. The material deposited should always be even
and wet. Lap each stroke over the preceding stroke to obtain a uniform finish.
NOTE: To reduce overspray and obtain maximum efficiency, always spray with the lowest
possible atomizing air pressure.
Thank you for purchasing this CLARKE SPYDER Oil Free Air Compressor,
which is designed for hobby and DIY use only.
Please read this leaflet thoroughly and carefully follow all instructions. In
doing so you will ensure the safety of yourself and that of others around
you, and you can look forward to the compressor giving you long and
satisfactory service.

4. SPRAY GUN MAINTENANCE
1.
Immerse only the front end of the gun until solvent just covers the fluid
connection.
2. Use a bristle brush and solvent to wash off accumulated paint.
3. Do not submerge the entire spray gun in solvent because:
a. the lubricant in the gland packings will dissolve and the packings will dry
out.
b. the lubricant will dissolve causing harder operation and faster wear.
c. residue from dirty solvent may clog the narrow air passages in the gun.
4. Wipe down the outside of the gun with solvent dampened rag.
5. Lubricate gun daily. Use a light machine oil on:
a. fluid needle packing.
b. air valve packing.
c. fan control packing.
d. trigger pivot point.
Coat the fluid control spring with vaseline.
Caution: Never use lubricants containing silicone as this may cause finish defects.

COMPRESSED AIR IS DANGEROUS, NEVER direct a jet of air at people or animals, and
NEVER discharge compressed air against the skin.
NEVER operate your compressor with any covers removed.
NEVER carry out any electrical or mechanical repairs unless you are qualified to do so.
If problems occur, contact your Clarke dealer.
NEVER leave pressure in the receiver overnight, or when transporting.
NEVER adjust, or tamper with the safety valves. The maximum pressure is factory set,
and clearly marked on the machine.
NEVER operate in wet or damp conditions. Keep the machine dry at all times.
NEVER use in dusty, dirty or paint spray locations. A clean atmosphere will ensure efficient
operation.
NEVER exert any strain on electrical cables and ensure that air hoses are not tangled
or wrapped around machinery etc.
ALWAYS expel all air from the receiver, and disconnect the machine is from the mains.
BEFORE carrying out any maintenance.
ALWAYS exercise care when touching components...some of the metal parts can
become quite hot during operation. Wait until the machine has cooled down.
ALWAYS adjust the pressure regulator to the recommended setting for the particular
spray gun or tool being used.
ALWAYS ensure there is adequate ventilation when spraying inflammable materials
e.g. cellulose paint, and keep clear of any possible source of ignition.
ALWAYS protect yourself. Think carefully about any potential hazards which may be created
by using the compressor and use the appropriate protection. e.g. Goggles will protect your
eyes from flying particles. Face masks will protect you against paint spray and/or fumes.
(Personal safety products can be obtained from your local Clarke dealer).
ALWAYS consult paint/product manufacturers instructions for safety and usage before
spraying any material
ALWAYS ensure that the air supply is turned off at the machine outlet and expel all
pressurised air from within the machine and other equipment attached to it, BEFORE
disconnecting air hoses or other equipment from your compressor.
ALWAYS exercise vigilance to ensure that children and animals are kept well away
from the compressor and any equipment attached to it.
ALWAYS ensure that all individuals using the compressor have read and fully understand
these Operating Instructions.

PAINT SPRAYING HINTS
WARNING
NEVER attempt to spray unless you are wearing suitable, approved
respiratory and eye protection.
REMEMBER that some modern paints require specialist respiratory
protection...always consult the paint manufacturers instructions.
1. GENERAL PREPARATION
a. Ensure that the area in which you will be spraying is clean and dust free.
b. Connect spray gun to compressor via suitable flexible hose.
c. With no paint in spray gun, test system for air leaks.
d. Cover adjacent pieces of equipment to prevent overspray. Mask areas
of the article not to be sprayed.
e. Ensure surface to be painted is clean, dry and free from oil and dust.
Check paint manufacturer’s instructions for any special surface
preparation required.
REMEMBER - TIME SPENT PREPARING SAVES TIME SPENT FINISHING
2. PAINT PREPARATION
a. Achieve the correct paint viscosity. This should be done according to
paint manufacturer’s instructions, and will vary according to type of paint.
b. Having mixed the paint thoroughly in a separate container, pour into the
spray gun paint container through a fine filter.
DO NOT OVERFILL SPRAY GUN PAINT CONTAINER - three quarters full is maximum
c. It is usually best to experiment with a couple of practice spray coats on a
piece of material with the same type of surface as the article you wish to
spray, eg. metal for a car body panel, wood for a piece of furniture etc.
d. Some common problems:
PROBLEM
Paint does not atomise
(comes out in blobs)
CAUSE
Paint is too thick, air
pressure is too low.
Paint dries before hitting Paint is too thin. Air
surface, leaving it dry
pressure is too high
with a rough texture
Finish is pitted like
Orange peel
work
CORRECTION
Add thinners. Increase air press.
(not above 50 psi, unless
specified by paint manuf.
Add more paint.
Reduce air pressure
Air pressure too high Reduce air pressure,
or spray too close to increase distance between
gun and work.

OPERATION (Numbers in brackets refer to fig. 1 below)
Before connecting your Spyder to the mains supply, check the following:• The mains voltage is 230V.
• The ON/OFF control knob (B) is in the OFF (inner) position.
• The pressure regulator (E) should be set at its lowest setting, i.e. turned fully
anticlockwise, and the tap (F) screwed IN to its closed position.
• If the machine has not been used for 24 hours or so, open the air receiver
drain valve (A) and turn it on its end in order to drain any condensate which
may have accumulated. When clear, close the valve, finger tight.

Now connect a suitable air hose, fitted with quick-fit adaptors, between the air
outlet (G) and the spray gun or air tool being used.
Ensure that the rubber washers are in place to form the necessary air tight seals.
These fittings should be screwed by hand but take care not to over tighten. If a
rubber seal is damaged then it should be replaced.
If you do not wish to use the Quick Fit method of hose connection, simply remove
the Quick Fit nut and use an air hose fitted with conventional 1/4 BSP connectors.
Once the hose connections are complete, CHECK AGAIN to ensure the pressure
regulator (E) is turned fully anticlockwise so that compressed air cannot reach the
air tool, then plug the machine into the mains and switch ON, by pulling the ON/
OFF knob (B) out, until it clicks into position.
The air compressor will now start, and pressure will build up in the receiver to a
regulated max. pressure of 8 Bar (116 psi).
Should the motor fail to start immediately, it is probable that the air receiver is already
full of air. Check the pressure gauge (D). If you release air, by opening the drain
valve (A), the motor will start automatically once the cut-in pressure is reached.

If this is not the case, it is possible that the overload cutout has intervened. This is a safety
device to prevent the motor from overheating. The device will reset when the temperature
falls to a predetermined level. In this event, switch OFF the machine and wait for 5 -10
minutes, before pressing the RESET button , mounted on the top cover, and clearly marked,
and is shown in Fig.2..
Switch ON the machine and try again. If the motor fails to start, after several
attempts, consult your Clarke dealer.
Once the machine has started, turn ON the air supply to your air tool by opening the tap
(F), and turn the pressure regulator (G) clockwise so that your chosen setting, shown on
the label on top of the regulator knob, is in line with the inverted vee mark on the underside
side of the casting. Note that the pressure gauge registers the pressure in the receiver
only.
IMPORTANT:
As no outlet pressure gauge is fitted to this model, the marks on the
Pressure Regulator provide an indication ONLY of the output pressure. If
you are using pressure sensitive tools or equipment, you should insert a
pressure gauge in the airline.
Check to ensure that there are no air leaks at any of the couplings or in other
parts of the system before operating the spray gun or air tool in the normal way.
When the compressor reaches its maximum working pressure, the motor will
automatically cut out, and will restart when the pressure has fallen by
approximately 20 psi. This automatic STOP/START process will continue, as
necessary, to maintain pressure in the receiver.
When you have finished the job in hand ALWAYS switch OFF at the ON/OFF switch,
NOT the mains supply, and release any pressure remaining in the system by opening
the drain valve until all air is expelled.
ALWAYS operate the air tool to further ensure that there is no pressure in the system
BEFORE disconnecting the tool. Finally, reset the pressure regulator to zero by turning
the regulator knob fully anticlockwise.
ROUTINE MAINTENANCE
IMPORTANT: Before carrying out any maintenance, always disconnect the machine
from the mains supply, drain the air receiver and, if necessary, allow the machine
to cool down before starting work.
Daily
Before use, always open the drain valve and tip the machine on to its end. Hold in that
position until all condensate has drained off. Do not rest machine on the drain valve.
Monthly
It is important to keep the compressor clean, with the help of a small soft brush and
vacuum cleaner. In particular, the air intake filter should be inspected at least
MONTHLY, and more often in dusty conditions, so that it is always kept free of any dirt
-7-
particles, which, if not cleaned away, will affect
the performance of the machine.
Fig. 2
PARTS DIAGRAM - PUMP
To clean the air intake filter, carefully prise out
the sponge element shown in fig.2. Clean the
sponge and the housing using a brush or clean
lint free cloth.
SPYDER 3 AND SPYDER 7
If necessary, the sponge filter may be gently
washed in warm soapy water, rinsed and
allowed to dry thoroughly before refitting.
Every 500 hours of operation or every 6 months
•
Clean all the external parts of the compressor.
(This cleaning makes the cooling process more efficient and prolongs the
life of the machine).
Fig. 3
•
Examine the non-return valve and renew
if necessary (fig. 3)
(Ref: H Fig. 1, Item 18 page 15, and Item
10, page 16,)
•
In the event of an air leak follow the procedure below:
• Load compressor to maximum pressure
• Unplug the compressor
• With a brush and soapy water wet all ‘screwed’ air connections
• Any leaks will show through the formation of air bubbles.
•
Replace the piston (See your Clarke dealer)
WARNING
NEVER UNSCREW A CONNECTION WHILST THE AIR RECEIVER IS UNDER PRESSURE.
ALWAYS MAKE CERTAIN THAT THE TANK HAS FIRST BEEN EMPTIED.
