2 regulators?

Last paint job I did on my bronco which turned out great I used 2 regulators. One on my Devilbiss QC3 filter/dryer on the wall and one on the gun. I believe I set them both at the same but Is it easier/better to leave the dryer regulator wide open and just regulate it at the gun or just have them both at the same setting? Does it make any difference?

Regulating the air coming into the gun is the most important...you want to set your wall regulator so that you have enough air getting to your gun and never starve it.

Good advice Shine, I run my wall regulator at 90 and the at the gun it depends on which gun I'm using and what the recommended air pressure is.

barry convinced me to run wide open some years back. i'm an old siphon gun painter so the hvlp's gave me fits for a while . the 120 at the wall has made a difference on supply . my iwata set 22 -25 lbs

The Iwata that I use I run at a constant 22 for water born base coat for coverage, 12 ponds for the orientation coat and 25 ponds for clear...I do use a 1/2 inch inlet hose and the large couplers at the gun...that may make a difference...I know that the 1/2 in air inlet hose does definitely make a difference and is perhaps why I can run my wall regulator at 90 PSI.
