    Painting Equipment.

    A few questions.

    Iíve been toying with the idea of getting a spray gun to paint some implements along with over things for our tractors.

    First question will this compressor be enough for a gun.




    Second what guns do you guys recommend. Iím just looking for something that will give me acceptable results. I doubt Iíll be able to get any paint laid down without orange peal anyway.

    Most likely will be shooting rustoleom farm and implement primer and color and John Deere paint.

    Are hardeners recommended?

    Thanks.

    Keith.

    I use a 2HP belt drive compressor, but, I have an extra 30 gallon tank,,,
    The extra tank is mostly to cool the air,,

    I use the $9 HF gun,,, I am happy with the results,,



    To me, the most important aspect of paint is the right reducer, and accurately mixing.

    More of my $9 HF gun paint work,,,,

    Keith,

    I second the 9.00 Harbor freight paint gun. I painted this with one and used IH red paint from tractor supply. I was not looking for parade quality since this is a worker tractor, hover I am happy with the outcome. My air compressor has a 20 gallon tank and is 2 HP.

    Don't hold back the horses on a quality dryer and try to keep the hose from the dryer to your spray gun
    as short as possible.

    Make sure you have at least one or even two water traps on the sprayer line. HF sells those as well if you don't already have one.

    The John Deere rattle can green spray paint from the dealer lays down nice and flat and dries quickly. Iíve also shot it out of a gun several times and prefer the rattle can cause of the easy cleanup versus the spraygun. Harbor freight spraygun works well for a while and then just toss it by another one. I use them for prime/sealer and use my SATAís for base/clear.

    This what I use for a gun or at least it looks like what I would replace mine with. I was a teenager when I bought the one I have that looks like this of the same brand and it still works good. I don’t know what it cost today but I doubt I spent more than $50 back then but it is brass under where the chrome has worn. I don’t know what the new ones are.

    I have a 25 foot hose that I use for the spray gun. It depends how big what I am painting is but are usually have that one plugged into another hose. I never have much of a problem with the length of it but I always put the regulator before the 25 foot hose so that the one supplying it are at full pressure. I have a mechanical water trap where I plug it into the shed and then a cheap throwaway filter trap by the gun? From what I see on that compressor or you will have to let it catch back up and keep an eye your pressure gauge but for things like the quick hitch 20 gallons is a lot of capacity. Something like a large tractor you’ll get bored waiting for it to catch back up and if the compressor is working hard it’s going to create hotter air and more water.

    Unless I was doing something larger than that quick hitch or more parts at the same time I would stick with the cans.

    By the way, What did you end up doing with the quick hitch?

    Hermanator-that gun looks just like mine i bought back around 88-or 89 at sears. i paid $72 for it then. i still have it--it needs a rebuild kit for it-have some of the parts for the rebuild-but they sent me one wrong part-just never got around to getting the right one for it.

    several yrs ago i bought a set of three of them low volume guns from nappa. used them one time to paint my dad's old set of pull behind, trip plows on steel wheels. and that has been it-used rattle cans for the small stuff since.

    You want the cfm as high as possible and 6cfm with a 1.5 HP motor is about the max you will squeeze out of a 110v 20amp outlet. Anything more requires stepping up to 220v. I have a 25g craftsman professional series that is a 5.1cfm and although it does ok it's not ideal for larger projects or high volume air tools. I bought it as a returned item at the local sears store 20 years ago because a roofing company discovered it couldn't keep up. It's beyond a $600 compressor but I paid $250 for it because it was used. Its worked flawlessly but its limited for sustained high volume air tools.
