11. WARNING: Some dust created by power sanding,
sawing, grinding, drilling, and other construction
activities, contains chemicals known to the State
of California to cause cancer and birth defects or
other reproductive harm. Some examples of these
chemicals are:
• Lead from lead-based paints
• Crystalline silica from bricks and cement or other
masonry products
• Arsenic and chromium from chemically
treated lumber
Your risk from these exposures varies,
depending on how often you do this type of work.
To reduce your exposure to these chemicals:
work in a well ventilated area, and work with
approved safety equipment, such as those
dust masks that are specially designed to filter
out microscopic particles. (California Health
& Safety Code § 25249.5, et seq.)

Safety
Initial Set Up
Read the ENTIRE IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION section at the beginning of this manual
including all text under subheadings therein before set up or use of this product.
Note: For additional information regarding the parts listed in the following
pages, refer to the Assembly Diagram near the end of this manual.
Before Setup
1. This air tool may be shipped with a
protective plug covering the air inlet.
Remove this plug before set up.
2. Before first use, clean the Spray Gun using
a solvent‑based thinner. If not removed,
the material used for testing and corrosion
prevention will contaminate paint.
Setup
Air Supply Setup
TO PREVENT SERIOUS INJURY FROM EXPLOSION:
Use only clean, dry, regulated, compressed air to power this tool. Do not use oxygen, carbon
dioxide, combustible gases,
or any other bottled gas as a power source for this tool.
Operation
1. Incorporate a filter, regulator with pressure gauge,
in-line shutoff valve, and quick coupler for best
service, as shown on Figure A on page 7 and
Figure B on page 8. An in-line shutoff ball
valve is an important safety device because
it controls the air supply even if the air hose
is ruptured. The shutoff valve should be a
ball valve because it can be closed quickly.
Note: Do not use an automatic oiler system or
add oil to airline. The oil will contaminate the
material being propelled, ruining the final result.
2. Attach an air hose to the compressor’s air outlet.
Connect the air hose to the air inlet of the tool.
Other components, such as a coupler plug
and quick coupler, will make operation
more efficient, but are not required.
Maintenance
WARNING! TO PREVENT SERIOUS INJURY
FROM ACCIDENTAL OPERATION:
Do not install a female quick coupler on the tool.
Such a coupler contains an air valve that will
allow the air tool to retain pressure and operate
accidentally after the air supply is disconnected.
Note: Air flow, and therefore tool performance,
can be hindered by undersized air supply components.
Page 6
3. The air hose must be long enough to reach
the work area with enough extra length to
allow free movement while working.
4. Close the in-line shutoff valve between
the compressor and the tool.
5. Turn on the air compressor according to
the manufacturer’s directions and allow it
to build up pressure until it cycles off.
6. Adjust the air compressor’s output regulator
so that the air output is enough to properly
power the tool, but the output will not exceed
the tool’s maximum air pressure at any time.
Adjust the pressure gradually, while checking the
air output gauge to set the right pressure range.
7. Inspect the air connections for leaks.
Repair any leaks found.
8. If the tool will not be used at this time,
turn off and detach the air supply and
safely discharge any residual air pressure
to prevent accidental operation.
Note: Residual air pressure should not be present
after the tool is disconnected from the air supply.
However, it is a good safety measure to attempt to
discharge the tool in a safe fashion after disconnecting
to ensure that the tool is disconnected and unpowered.
