Why is my critter gun doing this?

But it is shooting out the glue on the material the way it should.

You need to adjust the lower vertical nozzle. You're getting a little too much fluid. The nozzle can be turned in or out. You can also lower the air pressure to the gun.

My Critter does the same thing, but it's because I shoot the glue at 80 pounds of pressure like I use on my other pneumatic tools.

You have to remember that this type of glue is at the upper limits of what this sprayer is intended for. It is intended to spray things like stain and varnish, and the foam to foam glue is just a little thicker than the sprayer is able to handle comfortably. I have been using one of these for over 30 years, and it has always done this. It's annoying, but the sprayer still functions correctly.

Exactly! But I recall K Grip saying something about using there thinner to thin the stuff out.

Do not thin the K-Grip glue or DAP contact adhesive, it is meant to spray just as it is from the can.

Why are you worried about this anyway? You're not trying to get a glass like finish like painting a car.
