How to Spray

How to Spray

Take a few moments prior to spraying and review these simple tips to ensure your spraying project is a success.

Dual Speed Control

(Not available on all units)

The dual speed control feature allows you to slow down or speed up when spraying.

Turn the dual speed control to LOW to slow down the speed of application when first learning to spray or when spraying small items that require more control.

The LOW setting delivers more control and will reduce overspray when spraying thinner materials such as stain.

Turn the dual speed control to HIGH when you want to get to job done fast and when spraying large surfaces.

To reduce overspray, always spray at lowest speed that results in an acceptable spray pattern.

Variable Speed Control

(Not available on all units)

The variable speed control feature allows you infinite speed control to slow down or speed up to best suit your material and project.

Turn the variable speed control to lower speed settings to slow down the speed of application when first learning to spray or when spraying small items that require more control.

The lower speed settings deliver more control and will reduce overspray when spraying thinner materials such as stain.

Turn the variable speed control to higher speed settings when you want to get the job done fast and when spraying large surfaces.

To reduce overspray, always start at lowest speed setting and increase speed to the minimum setting that results in an acceptable spray pattern.

333394J

Spray Techniques

Use a piece of scrap cardboard to practice these basic spraying techniques before you begin spraying the surface.

Hold sprayer 10 in. (25 cm) from surface and aim straight at surface. Tilting the sprayer to direct the spray angle causes an uneven finish.

Flex wrist to keep sprayer pointed straight. Fanning sprayer to direct spray at angle causes uneven finish.

NOTE: How fast you move the sprayer will affect spray application. If material is pulsating, you are moving too fast. If material drips, you are moving too slow. See

Troubleshooting, page 26.

Common Procedures

Common Procedures

Installing Spray Tips

Do not put your hand in front of the spray tip.

Two spray tips are available for use with this sprayer. The black tip produces a 12-inch wide spray pattern. The gray tip produces a

4-inch wide spray pattern.

Either spray tip may be used to spray materials that are recommended to be sprayed with a 0.015 tip size. See material container for spray tip size recommendations.

LOCKING TAB SLOT

Install Spray Tip

1.

While holding the spray tip 90 degrees from either the SPRAY or UNCLOG position, align spray tip locking tab with the locking tab slot in the spray tip guard.

2.

Push the spray tip all the way into the spray tip guard.

3.

Rotate the spray tip to the SPRAY position.

NOTE: Make certain spray tip locking tab is pushed all the way into the slot in the spray tip guard. You should not be able to remove the spray tip from the spray tip guard when it is in the Spray or Unclog positions.

NOTE: If the locking tab slot in the spray tip guard is blocked, preventing installation of the spray tip, rotate the spray tip guard until it is visually aligned with the internal hole, then install the spray tip.
