A well ventilated area
To Assemble
1. Attach the sprayhead assembly to the air gun by screwing the swivel nut onto the nozzle end of the
2. Attach the spray wand onto the sprayhead assembly at the discharge end...hand tighten only.
3. Select the desired spray tip and screw it onto the end of the spray wand.
4. Attach a container of material to the sprayhead assembly by screwing the top of the container onto
the aluminum lid.
5. Attach an air hose to the air gun
IMPORTANT: Follow recommended preparation and safety precautions.
1. Before spraying, make sure that the canister is tightly threaded to the sprayhead assembly, but do
not force!
2. The unit operates between 40-120 psi with an optimum pressure between 70-90 psi.
3. Before changing containers, always disconnect the air hose!
4. Keep the spray wand pointed toward the surface to be sprayed. Never point the spray gun at yourself or anyone else!
5. Always clean your M-1600-2 after each use.
Tips for more effective spraying
Make sure that areas that are not to be sprayed are covered or masked
Material of different viscosities will spray at different rates. Be sure to experiment with the three tips to
determine which is best suited for your application
The force of the spray and the amount of atomization can be controlled by adjusting the air pressure.
Remember to move the M-1600-2 spray applicator back and forth in steady smooth strokes for even coverage.
Since viscous materials are affected by climate and age, follow manufacturer’s instructions regarding
storage, shelf life and thinning.
You are now ready to begin using your M-1600-2 spraying applicator

Your 1600 is a quality product. With proper care, it will give you excellent performance for a long time.
1. After disconnecting the air line, refill with diluted mixture of solvent. When using solvents, be sure
to follow the cautions on the solvent container. Also, because strong solvents will shorten the life of
seals and O-rings, dilute the agent, following the advice of the solvent manufacturer.
2. Reconnect the canister and spray the cleaning solution through the unit and all used wands for 30
3. Should air leaks develop in the gun, adjust the packing nut (BB-104) directly below the trigger or the
retainer cap (BB-103) at the back of the gun.
4. To assure smooth operation of the trigger, occasionally spray silicone or oil around the valve mechanism of the spray gun.
Troubleshooting tips
Too little material being discharged
1. Check air pressure and adjust. Remember optimum pressure is
between 70-90 psi
2. Check length of pickup tube
3. Check viscosity of may need thinning.
4. Check for obstructions in pickup tube, wand or air inlet hole in
5. Check that the spray tip is large enough for the material
Too much material being discharged
1. Reduce air pressure
2. Make sure material is not too thin
Irregular Spray Pattern
1. As above, check for obstructions in pickup tube, sprayhead,
wands or inlet hole.
2. Check for foreign material or clots of material solids in canister.
3. Check functioning of air compressor.
Trigger on gun hard to pull
Apply small amount of silicone or oil around the valve (C-228-C) at
hex nut (BB-104)
