A MUST HAVE cheapie spray gun for using upside down.

I have to tell you if you are doing any painting or priming this is a MUST HAVE gun! I have a whole arsenal of spray guns, some costing many hundreds but this stupid $40 gun just blew my mind!

I got it for primer only, polyester primer actually, it's got a 2.0 tip. I went to prime the inside of the cab and have another for general priming that was going to grab but saw this and the tilting cup and it hit me how useful this may be. Now mind you, I don't believe I have ever even used this gun where I moved the cup out of it's normal position. I just thought it moved and it mounted that way because it was an odd gun, it never occured to me that you could do what I did today.

I rotated the cup to spray the gun upside down! OMG! Look at the photos of the areas down in the bottom of the cab corners. I looked with a flash light and was blown away that it was TOTALLY coated inside there!

Where did you find such a critter? I'd been threatening to invent something like that. But I guess someone beat me to the punch.

How does it do on larger panels? Even fan pattern? Had a Graco side mount many years ago, a mid size finish gun. It sprouted legs. Miss that thing. It was my go to for interior and jambs. Handy style guns.

Yeah, I have only used it for primer but yeah, I have sprayed larger panels. The fan isn't huge but it will do the job.

That gun is a copy of smaller Iwata guns. I have an Iwata LPH 100 with that cup setup that I really like for smaller jobs. I have rotated the cup some to paint horizontal panels, but I have not tried to rotate it like you have. Neat trick!

Kobalt Tools used to sell that gun in Lowe's. Ive used it more than any gun, I've sprayed stain, epoxy primer, enamel, base/clear. I don't know if the tip is 2.0 though.
The ID (I think) on the box was 'Item # 301339' and 'Model # SGY-AIR87'

Theres a couple of them on ebay, but verify with the seller that they have the swivel/adjustable cup and there wasnt a version thats non-adjustable/swivel

that's a great design. The Devilbiss cup liners can be used upside down as well, or damn well near it.

Yup, I use the Devillbiss cup liners all the time; no issues at all painting upside down with any of my guns. Works great
Hope this helps.

This is the thing guys, the gun with the cup upside down couldn't get down into where I got it into! And check out this little mod I did today to paint up under the dash.

All I simply did was removed the cup from the gun, and screwed onto that fitting a female connector for a hose.
I then got a quart can and drilled a hole through it for a male fitting for a hose. I made a gasket out of rubber and put a large flat washer on the fitting, put a nut on the back and tightened it up good so it wouldn't leak.

I made a funky little bracket tied to the can with a hose clamp. Then screwed that to the dash where the windshield moulding screw hole.
