OPERATION
3. ADJUSTING THE SPRAY GUN
2. PREPARATION
NOTE: FOR BEST RESULTS, SURFACE PREPARATION AND PAINT
THINNING ARE THE TWO MOST IMPORTANT AREAS. ENSURE
ALL SURFACES ARE FREE OF DUST, DIRT AND GREASE.
On/Off Trigger
1To start spraying, squeeze
the on/off trigger.
2Release the on/off trigger
to stop spraying.
Thinning
Thinning is particularly important when spraying. Most paints
are supplied ready for brush application and need to be diluted
sufficiently for spraying purposes.
Follow the manufacturers guide for thinning ratios which
should be labelled on the paint container.
1Before pouring any paint
or thinners work out how
much of each substance is
needed.
2Pour the required paint
and thinners using a filter
into a mixing cup and mix
thoroughly.
Spray Regulator Dial
THINNERS
PAINT
THINNERS
The spray regulator dial is a stop that limits the distance the
trigger can be pressed and can therefore limit the amount of
paint being sprayed.
PAINT
1Fully tighten the spray
regulator dial.
3Once the correct
consistancy is obtained,
pour the mixture into the
paint pot.
2Slightly loosen the spray
regulator dial, then test
setting on a scrap piece of
material.
IMPORTANT! THE SPRAY GUN CANNOT BE USED WITH
MATERIALS CONTAINING ABRASIVE SUBSTANCES, GLAZES,
CAUSTIC AND ALKALINE SUBSTANCES.
Paint Pot Vent Cap
The paint pot has a vent cap
to allow air to escape which
enables fluid to flow into the
spray gun.
When spraying, ensure this
cap is open.
3Repeat step 2 until desired fluid output is reached.
4. ADJUSTING THE SPRAY GUN CONT.
Fan Adjustment Dial
The fan adjustment dial controls the distibution of paint in the
fan. Fully tightened, paint is concentrated in the centre of the
fan, loosened the paint is more evenly distributed through out
the fan.
5. SPRAYING TECHNIQUE
1.Move the gun with the entire arm, not by flexing the
wrist. This will keep the spray gun at right angles to the
surface, keeping the pattern even.
1Start with the fan
adjustment dial completely
loosened.
2.Keep the spray gun perpendicular to the surface, so
spray distance is consistent.
2Partly tighten the dial then
test setting on a scrap
piece of material.
3Repeat step 2 until desired fan pattern is reached.
3Begin 15cm off the edge of the area being sprayed. Start
the movement of the stroke before squeezing the trigger.
Release trigger once passed the opposite edge of the
workpiece.
Choosing Spray Patterns
1To change spray pattern,
loosen the nozzle collar
and rotate the nozzle to
desired position. Tighten
nozzle collar to secure
nozzle in place.
For vertical surfaces:
3Overlap each stroke by 2cm
to achieve an even coverage.
2cm
For horizontal surfaces:
IT IS CRUCIAL TO CLEAN THE SPRAY GUN AFTER
EACH USE. Please refer to the cleaning procedure.
Helpful Hints
1.Maintain the same distance from workpiece (approx 15cm)
throughout each pass.
2.Maintain the same speed throughout each pass.
3.Always allow a coat to completely dry before adding another coat.
4.Avoid stopping and starting in the middle of workpiece as this can
lead to a patchy finish.

CLEANING PROCEDURE
NOTE: After each use it is essential that the spray gun is
cleaned thoroughly. Failure to do so will likely cause blockages
which will prevent the tool from working.
FAILURE TO CLEAN THE TOOL WILL VOID THE WARRANTY.
If oil based paint was used, use a solvent such as turps for cleaning. If water
based paint was used, use water for cleaning.
1Empty the paint pot of remaining
material.
2Fill paint pot with appropriate
cleaning solution.
3Connect the spray gun to the air
supply then spray solution onto a
scrap piece of carboard.
4Repeat steps 2-3 until the cleaning
solution runs clear from gun.
5Remove the paint pot and rinse.

GENERAL AIR TOOL SAFETY WARNINGS
WARNING! Read all safety warnings and all instructions. Failure to follow the warnings
WARNING! In the event that an air line is cut or broken, the air supply must be turned off at the
and instructions may result in electric shock, fire and/or serious injury.
Save all warnings and instructions for future reference. The term “power tool” in the
warnings refers to your mains-operated (corded) power tool or battery-operated (cordless) power
tool.
1. Work area safety
a. Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or dark areas invite accidents.
b. Do not operate power tools in explosive atmospheres, such as in the presence of flammable
liquids, gases or dust. Power tools create sparks which may ignite the dust or fumes.
c. Keep children and bystanders away while operating a power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose
control.
d. Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewellery. Keep your hair, clothing and gloves away
from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewellery or long hair can be caught in moving parts.
e. Check the maximum pressure rating of any tools or accessories that you intend using with the
compressor. The output pressure of the air from the compressor must be regulated so that it never exceeds
the rated pressure of the tool or accessory.
f. Always wear safety goggles or glasses when using the air compressor. Never point the nozzle of an
accessory towards any part of your body or towards another person.
g. Drain the moisture from the tank daily. It will help prevent corrosion.
h. Use safety equipment including safety goggles or shield, ear protection, breathing or respirator mask and
protective clothing.
i. The tool must be used only for its prescribed purpose. Any use other than those mentioned in this Manual
will be considered a case of misuse. The user and not the manufacturer shall be liable for any damage or
injury resulting from such cases of misuse.

very quickly, both with the capability of striking people, and blowing foreign particles into the air.
• Do not attempt to catch the air line but immediately keep bystanders well clear and turn off the air supply to
the hose, turn off the compressor at the On / Off button, and then remove the hose from the compressor.
