Grounding
To prevent
electric shock
and death from
incorrect grounding
wire connection:
Check with a qualified
electrician if you are in doubt
as to whether the outlet is
properly grounded. Do not
modify the power cord plug
provided with the tool. Never
remove the grounding prong
from the plug. Do not use the
tool if the power cord or plug
is damaged. If damaged, have
it repaired by a service facility

Grounded Tools: Tools with Three
Prong Plugs
1.
2.
3.
Tools marked with “Grounding Required” have a three wire cord and
three prong grounding plug. The
plug must be connected to a properly
grounded outlet. If the tool should
electrically malfunction or break
down, grounding provides a low
resistance path to carry electricity
away from the user, reducing the risk
of electric shock. (See 3-Prong Plug
and Outlet.)
Double Insulated Tools: Tools
with Two Prong Plugs
1.
Tools marked “Double Insulated” do
not require grounding. They have
a special double insulation system
which satisfies OSHA requirements
and complies with the applicable
standards of Underwriters Laboratories, Inc., the Canadian Standard
Association, and the National Electrical Code. (See Outlets for 2-Prong
Plug.)
2.
Double insulated tools may be used
in either of the 120 volt outlets shown
in the preceding illustration. (See
Outlets for 2-Prong Plug.)
The grounding prong in the plug is
connected through the green wire inside the cord to the grounding system
in the tool. The green wire in the cord
must be the only wire connected to
the tool’s grounding system and must
1.
never be attached to an electrically
“live” terminal. (See 3-Prong Plug
and Outlet.)
The tool must be plugged into an
appropriate outlet, properly installed
and grounded in accordance with all
codes and ordinances. The plug and
outlet should look like those in the
preceding illustration. (See 3-Prong
Plug and Outlet.)
SKU 66297
2.
Extension Cords
Grounded tools require a three wire
extension cord. Double Insulated
tools can use either a two or three
wire extension cord.
As the distance from the supply outlet
increases, you must use a heavier
gauge extension cord. Using extension cords with inadequately sized
wire causes a serious drop in voltage,
resulting in loss of power and possible tool damage.
(See Table A.)
For technical questions, please call 1-800-444-3353.

Make sure the extension cord is properly wired and in good electrical condition. Always replace a damaged
extension cord or have it repaired by
a qualified electrician before using it.
Protect the extension cords from
sharp objects, excessive heat, and
damp or wet areas.

2.
Isolate the Turbine from the spray
area.
3.
Route the power cord along a safe
route to reach the work area without
creating a tripping hazard or exposing
the power cord to possible damage.
The power cord must reach the work
area with enough extra length to allow free movement while working.
4.
5.
There must not be hazardous objects, such as utility lines or foreign
objects, nearby that will present a
hazard while working.
Because evaporative fumes accumulate when spraying paints and related
materials, safety precautions must be
taken.
6.
Operate only in a well-ventilated work
space. Wear a ventilator whenever in

manufacturer. If the paint is too thick,
you will get a thick, orange-peel finish, and the sprayer may clog. If the
paint is too thin, you will get poor coverage, drips and runs, and excessive
drying of the paint in the air.
3.
Proper thinning varies with the material being used and local temperature
and humidity. In most cases, thinning
will be approximately 10% and not
more than 30%.
4.
Test the paint viscosity by dipping
a stick into the paint, then observing the rate paint drips from the end.
Properly thinned paint will drip about
1 per second.
5.
Follow paint manufacturer’s recommendations. Experiment with scrap
material to determine the correct
paint viscosity.
6.
Always strain the paint when pouring
it into the Cup (1a). This will prevent
lumps or impurities from clogging the
Fluid Nozzle (4a).
Understanding
Paint Thinners and Solvents
1.
Understand the difference between a
paint “thinner” and a paint “solvent”. A
thinner is used to thin the paint while
it is wet. A solvent is used to dissolve
the paint after it has dried.
2.
There are basically three types of
paint: evaporative, chemical and
coagulating.
Prepare the paint
1.
Due to the high viscosity of latex and
most water based paints, they are not
generally recommended for HVLP
painting. Check with the paint manufacturer for specifics.
2.
In most cases, the paint must be
thinned for spraying. Only use the
thinner recommended by the paint

Cleaning the paint before it dries,
using a thinner, is much easier than
cleaning the paint after it dries using
a solvent.
9.
Always clean this spray gun immediately after use, before the paint dries.
Use the thinner approved by the
manufacturer for your paint.
Paint Remover
Lacquer

Alcohol
Evaporative paints cure when the
solvent evaporates. These are quick
drying paints, including lacquer and
shellac.
Chemical paints cure when there is
a chemical reaction solidifying the
paint, as the solvent evaporates. Oilbased paint and varnish are of this
type. They are relatively slow drying,
and may cure over months or years.
Coagulating paint such as latex and
water based finishes are composed
of bits of paint suspended in water.
As the water evaporates the bits of
paint adhere to each other and form
a paint film. The paint film chemically
bonds together.
General Operating Instructions
1.
Attach the Air Hose (21a) to the Air
Hose Connector (10) of the Turbine.
Attach the other end of the Air Hose
to the Spray Gun Body (11a).
2.
Premix and strain the paint, pour it in
the Paint Cup (1a). Screw Cup into
Cover (17a), being sure Gasket (16a)
is in place.
3.
Plug the Turbine Power Cord (22)
into a suitable 115 Volt outlet.
4.
Press the Power Switch (8) to the ON
position.
5.
The Turbine will begin to operate.
6.
With the Turbine supplying air pressure, the Spray Gun is operated by
squeezing the Trigger (8a). Release
the Trigger to stop spraying.
6.
While the paint is wet, before it has
dried, you can thin or clean away the
paint using a thinner.
7.
The Spray Gun may be hung on the
Spray Gun Hanger (4) for temporary
storage during operation.
7.
Once the paint has dried, in most
cases the thinner can no longer be
used. You must then use a solvent to
remove the paint.
8.
When you are done working remove
the Paint Cup (1a) and pour out the
remaining paint into a suitable container.
9.
First rinse the Paint Cup (1a). Pour
fresh thinner into the paint cup and

and pour remaining clean thinner
back into the thinner container.
5.
Hold the Spray Gun vertically. Holding the gun at an angle will affect the
spray pattern.
6.
Do not spray too heavily. Heavy spray
will cause drips, sags and runs. Build
up the paint surface with several light
coats. Apply each coat when the
previous one is tacky but not yet dry.
This will allow the over coat to adhere
to the previous layer, but will not be
so heavy as to cause sags, runs or
drips.
7.
If possible, lay the work piece flat to
help avoid runs or sags.
8.
You must also avoid thick, clumpy
paint surface called “orange peel”.
Prevent orange peel by thinning the
paint properly before spraying. Then
spray successive light, even coats.
NOTE: It is important to clean the
Spray Gun immediately after each
use. Failure to clean will allow the
paint to dry inside the Spray Gun,
leading to tool failure.
10. To prevent accidents, turn off the Turbine, by pressing the Power Switch
(8) to the OFF position and disconnect the Power Cord (22) after use.
11. Disconnect the Air Hose (21a).
12. Clean, then store the tool indoors out
of children’s reach.
Painting Technique
with this HVLP Sprayer
1.
Your goal in painting with this sprayer
is to get good coverage of the work
piece. You want an even coat without drips or runs and with a smooth
surface.
2.
To get an even coat, hold the spray
gun 6 to 8 inches away from the work
surface. Keep the distance of your
gun from the project as consistent as
possible.
3.
Start spraying slightly off the edge
of the work piece, move the spray
across and end slightly off the work
piece. Overlap each pass across the
work piece. While this method does
create over-spray at the edges, it will
give you an even coat without heavier
or lighter layers at the edge.
4.
Do not stop your motion when spraying the work piece. Stopping will
cause to build up, and run or sag.
