Well what im stumped on is why the back of my paint can says for hvlp use 8-10 psi, then the devilbiss says set the regulator at 23psi, just a little confused as all

Chris,
Input from the regulator is 23 pounds, pressure loss thru the gun is 13 pounds. Theoretical output at the cap is then supposed to be 10 pounds. Or so the fine print says

Look at the Devillbiss Finishline instructions and you will see a gauge you can put on the tip to actually measure the output.
The instr are on the mfr. website if you don't have 'em.
Probably on Sata's and others as well
Dave

Yeah I always set up a gun using an old piece of plywood. This purple gun seems to like 40psi just like all the other cheaper so called (HVLP) guns I have tried. Never Never read the instructions to anything you buy at HF! They are normally poorly translated Chinese. Most of them are good for a laugh! Not to say that I read instructions on a regular basis..

I am not an expert on paint guns, but I believe that the true HVLP guns are supposed to be somehow regulating the pressure to 10 psi at the cap, with the regulator set at a certain pressure. Any gun that you get will have to be set to where it sprays right. I wouldn't really worry about what the gage says, if the pattern is right for you.

Well Dave,What gun do you have?
It states on the page the stock number it will fit and a 1.0 is really only good for a touch up or mini gun anyway.WAY too small for any full size spraying.
Unless you plan on using you full size gun for small stuff,I'd forget it.

gun

Bee I have the 43430 gun. I was just curious if the tip would fit. Is there any problems running a small tip on a large gun if I wanted to do touch up?

I honestly don't think it will as that # is a conventional pressure pot set up and I know for a fact, the Harbor HVLP & Conv. gun set's will not interchange.
Different fluid nozzles all together and the threads are different as well so you can't swap over from one to the other.
You can use a 1.0 in a full size gun for small stuff but for just a little more money,you can have the mini 43430 touch up gun which is a Sata MiniJet knock off. No it don't spray as good as a Sata but is a decient gun for what it is. I;ve used one for several years but after getting a MiniJet 3 SR, I hardly use it anymore unless I got some 2 color blends or something requiring 2 guns quick.

Just tried the HF 43430

I have just tried out my new HF gun with some DuPont Centari over some Nason Ful Poxy. I am using this stuff on some frame brackets and other hidden parts where all I want is protection.

This particular gun really likes a gauge reading of ~20-25 pounds at least for 3:2 Centari. I tried several higher settings right up to 50 pounds. The 40 to 45 pounds suggested by other folks as a good setting turned the gun into a hose. When I finally got down to the 20-25 pounds, it really started to work well, at least for me. The paint really lay down at that point.

Dad gummed gun still will not spray around corners, just like my old siphons. Oh well, maybe in my next lifetime someone will invent one that will do that
Dave

What do you mean around corners? Do you mean upside down? If so you can get a bag kit that will adapt to it that will allow the gun to function inverted.

Vince,
It's a joke - ain't no gun that will shoot around corners - paint spray, 30-06, 12 gauge, garden hose, etc.

Actually there is a weapon system that will allow you to shoot around corners. It was developed in Israel and will accept several types of weapons. I used a version of it in the USMC. We were doing trials on it with sniping weapons.

And in the '50s they tried to take the old "grease gun", M-3, I think, and put a strange barrel on it plus the WWll Germans had a '98 Mauser that they tried. My recollection is that they all had an accuracy of a thrown brick and ate barrels. If anyone can make a strange weapon, the Israelis can - but will it live for long? Doubt it - a bullet just doesn't like to make sharp turns and something WILL give
