Reason for my post....I bought the gun at harbor freight. Has 26 reviews and the majority are very favorable......normally $24.99....on sale for $15.99.....but with my coupon I received by email this morning....$9.99 ....bought 2....just in case.
Here is a link if anyone is interested....have to have the coupon to get the $9.99 deal

Once you get the gun, clean it before you use it. A lot of Harbor Freight stuff is saturated with oil. Which will make fish eyes on your paint surface if it gets in the paint.
Second. If you don't already have one, get an organic solvent resperator. There are a lot of nasty things in paint spray. Safety and health first!!!! Cover as much skin as you can (long sleeves, hat, rubber gloves, etc).
Then enjoy your new tool!!!!!
I usually "paint" a couple cardboard boxes with a new gun to get used to it - spray patterns, air feed, etc before I paint anything real.
PS - not to say I'm hard core, but I have a paint booth (air filters and all...) in my barn......

Paint likes to stick to your hair and you really do not want to use thinner to wash your hair out!
But it would give one the look of Doc Brown in "Back to the Future"!
Good advice from TennBlue!

Checked the sprayer nozzle is a 1.5 ......My intentions would be implements paints and repainting my lawn tractors......no intentions to repaint a vehicle any time soon.....way over my pay grade :-) or skill.
The 1.5 work for most of what I am doing??
