B&K Painting: Take it to Sherwin Williams and have them pressure test it.
colstreak: Thanks for you video. I have a question. A contractor gave me a Graco X7 magnum paint sprayer that's been sitting in my garage and I want to sell it. I have never used it and I don't know a thing about it. He said it worked fine when he had it. Is there a way to test it? Can I just prime it with water and then spray it out? Do I need to run anything in there to protect it or do any kind of maintenance on it? Thanks.

B&K Painting: It can be caused by several things. Pressure, is it up high enough? If so check gun and machine filters. clogged filters will lower the pressure. Worn tips will cause fingering. Tips last about 30 gallons. Try a new tip at higher pressures. Keep in mind you can never get rid of fingering totally.
Abdul Makhboor: Thanks for instructions . When I use my graco and wen I am spraying I see two thick lines at the end . Is it the nozel or the paint is too thick I tried to add the water but not very good I still see the lines ?. firstname.lastname@example.org

Arise Vz: I actually WORK for a living too. I am a painter...I keep my sprayers clean..not too difficult. why? because i take pride in my equipment; make it last longer. I just would rather spend my time not making painting videos and do what i enjoy doing on my days off which is playing video games. sorry you got so bothered by my comment.
dION bOWMAN: thats because they WORK for a living dude.. not spending their time shining up their paint sprayer... these guys know their stuff and just offering advice.. the best comment you could think of was, "ya, but your sprayer is dirty!" hahah.. back to your parents basement to play video games
Arise Vz: i wish you guys took pride in your sprayers and equipment...so dirty
B&K Painting: if we are spraying both we do the walls first then the ceilings. You masking will be easier and your ceiling line will be straighter.
Connor Robertson: Do you normally spray your ceilings first, and then your walls? If so, how do you cut in for the corners?
Wes T paintninjagc: i've thought about rigging mine up to one of those remote controlled golf bag things that you can operate with a keychain remote, so i can move it around remotely, they have big off road tyres. there the perfect shape and size, and it would be cool too.
Abdu Arzate: when cutting
Abdu Arzate: Thinning helps with getting a straighter line though?
B&K Painting: If the fan pattern off try cleaning gun and pump filters. Tip could be warn out. I never thin paints for any reason. Cashmere was not designed to spray no matter what the label says.
B&K Painting: A couple things cause the roping. One is not enough pressure. Another is a dirty gun filter or pump filter. Another could be a bad tip. If you are spraying with ProClassic and a 210 tip I run the pressure at just about full pressure. 2800 PSI or greater. The cloud and droplets are a sign of a blown tip.
mohonewhaven: How do I know if I have to much spray pressure or to little? When I spray there is a mist cloud around my gun & face and small flecks of paint get all over me. How do I get rid of the rope lines along the top & bottom of my spray pattern. I have the RAC X 210 tip and Pro Classic paint like you recommend. Thanks!!
rickdel73: I have a Graco 490 (comparable to the Titan 440i). I've only used it once and had a ton of atomized paint in the air. I now believe this was from 'bounce-back' due to having my pressure too high. However, I could not get the proper fan pattern without turning my airless all the way up, which is 3300PSI. I was shooting SW Cashmere, Low Luster, and according to its application instructions it requires a .017" - .021" tip at 2000psi. I was using a new Graco RAC X 517 tip. (CONTINUED)
rickdel73: Obviously I was shooting at too high of a psi, so do you know why I couldn't I get the proper fan pattern when using a recommended tip and psi? I assumed I needed to thin the paint, but after reading your comments, now I'm thinking I need a different tip. Any advice? (BTW - I didn't even realize all the paint in the air was wrong until I watched you painting overhead without goggles). THANKS!!!
EsotericVegas: What do you store your sprayers in? Graco's Pump Armor is ~ $5 per use around here. I'd think that is a bit much for commerical use.
B&K Painting: I have never thinned any paints oil or water. Anything with a 10 at the end is for trim. 15 or 17's for the walls.
robby82ful: do u thin oil base paint
robby82ful: and also on painting oil basement
robby82ful: hi chris u give alot of info on the tip i need to learn more on the tips i have a 510 tip what is that used for basic i have a wagner paint 770 that i bought from ebay im getting use to using it but i have alot of work still to do on my house im rebuilding the house but if u can give the the tips number and what there used for
B&K Painting: I never, let me say that again, never thin paints. They are made and tested to be used right out of the can. All you do is degrade the quality of the paint by thinning it. Don't let anyone fool you into believing you need to thin it.
cruizin31: Chris, do you thin your latex paint.?If so, to what viscocity?
Pa Soa: Thank you... Your videos have been my tech support. You have an awsome talent and I appriciate all your help.
