Paint cup question

Lets go into the wayback machine for a minute.I am wondering about the DeVilbiss "Drip-free" cup. Model TGC-545. Its a siphon feed for a conventional gun.

I have a JGA 502 thats about 35 years old and i cant get a gasket for my old cup and am looking to get a new cup for it.I am resisting the urge to get a new gun on the basis that i have a good gun already.I have only used it a few times an am ok with it.

I am looking to paint my first vehicle.1966 Chevy truck.There is so much to read about products and techniques.

Thanks for any info you can provide.

Tom

I have considered going back to a conventional gun when no one is looking as well. The problem with gravity guns is metallics will sink to the bottom between coats and spit out at the worst time..
and this is a big problem when your as picky like most of us here.

Go with what you know..get it working I'd say

Tom, most of those old cup gaskets were made from a rubberized cork material. It's a very common gasket material, so maybe you can obtain some from a local supplier and cut your own gaskets for the cup.....

I'm almost sure Devilbiss is still making siphon feed guns so there should be a part number for the replacement gaskets. Maybe try emailing the company and requesting the part numbers-then do a search for the gaskets? I still use a JGA often in the shop-but these days it stays loaded with black lacquer primer for use as a guidecoat. I could never go back to the cloud they make with high solids clears.
