Wow! Nice intro oldsport!
2 questions, do you get spits with you 30 inch extension? I watch closely and can not tell, even when you stop and go at tradition points.
I have a 10 inch extension and sometimes I do spit and sometimes not.
2, how can I safely paint a gable wall that sits above a steep metal roof? Thanks for your help. I have spent hours watching you videos.
Thank you for your time
Great video, thanks for sharing!
Do you recommend back brushing
and blow paint everywhere. using one of those poles causes more overspray. you must have everything covered and all the cars in the neighborhood covered with that technique. ha ha.
reversa tip omg change to flat tip and cone filter then you wont have plug ups and spits. also throw that pole back in the tool box if you look closely the spray pattern is spotty from going throught that pole. you are killing me larry.
being the scrooge I am, I purchased a DUSICHIN dus 037, with NO TIP. If I install a Graco 517 tip. It is loose. Any help to enlighten me. Thanx
Ladder hopping? Never heard of that Wow Wee! Sounds like an accident waiting to happen. Do you have Workmans Comp? If you do don’t answer these questions. Just something you should think about so you live long and healthy! LOL! Love your educating DYI’S Thanks
Way too much talking
Hmmm for that paint job to really last you would need to back brush or back roll. I fix so many house that are just sprayed. Oh and we start from the top and work your way down
It’s better to hit the corners on point first with a horizontal spray pattern, then spray the walls out towards them working from the top down. The paint distortions are called “dry laps” and areas where the coat is too thin are called “holidays”. It’s ok to spot check the product with a “wet mil” gauge and follow the application recommendations. Back rolling/brushing is not necessary when the prep is done properly and all angles are covered. Rolling scaffolds are preferred over ladders when painting most walls. Long tip extensions should only be used for very hard to reach areas and use a smaller diameter “whip line” at the last few feet of spray hose on airless and conventional sprayers to help reduce fatigue on continuous spray jobs where it’s not uncommon for a painter to spray 25-50 gallons a day depending on hours, wind loss and mil density. When painting the side of a steel building like a power plant or factory from a “window washer scaffold”, each pass from the top to the ground is called a “drop”. One could also encounter several “drops” on a large house from a ladder or standard scaffolding. Try to avoid dry lap on the previous drop. Stay very aware of wind direction when spraying outdoors and avoid overspray blowing on all visible roofing and on other peoples property, especially automobiles. Even when running crews of up to a dozen industrial painters, I still grabbed a gun and painted right along with them and preferred the shorter trigger myself. I was in the paint business for about 25 yrs before I switched trades and became a control room operator at a power plant and have seen my share of product, equipment and technique on all types of surfaces including automotive. Keep in mind custom paint pays the best rate. Stay safe, keep your gun clean and your paint strained! Cheers!
Doing this you’re halfway to just getting new siding.
I’ve been spraying behr exterior flat paint. The t111 siding finish came out looking uneven. Behr flat paint isn’t really flat, (it kind of has a sheen to it.) would I still have This problem if I used a paint like kellymoore flat paint. Kelly Moore flat paint has a true flat finish. With the behr paint You can really see the places where I started and stopped, it looks heavy in places is the best way I can explain it.
Can you explain any of this for me?
Thank you for your vids.
I’m in the market for an airless paint gun. After doing a little research I’ve narrowed it down to the titan 1700 hea. Is the Wagner 170 and the titan 1700 the same system? This is just for work around the house.
Bro they have spray poles with swivel to get all the right coverage u spray uneven u have to have that sray tip at a even distant
thank you for the tips i m working on my house now in have a lot of old paint
You should put a shot valve on that extension,will stop those blob coming out when you pull the trigger. hi from nz.
Funny how many people here
Listen to reply not to understand
I’ve learn several tips from him
I would like to see a review on the titan sprayer guide.
I used it couple days ago and thought it wasnt what I expected but, I can see how would be useful for outside painting
What kind of paint that?
Hello what tip number do you use for the siding
Was that plastic siding? I didn’t know paint would stick to that stuff.
What is an airless paint sprayer? Can you show us what it looks like? What switches to hit. What make and model you like best?
Hello! How do you keep runners from being a problem while spraying?
Just one coat of paint after the primer?
Tell them you use approved scaffolds 😂
good job. but that wand is too long to be useful in tight spots or on a ladder ,
Calves everyday, not arms!
Good afternoon! My name is Rodrigo, I live in Brazil in the state of São Paulo. I have worked with paintings since 2005 and managed to buy a national Airless machine. For a Graco 390 Airless is costing about 9 thousand reais equivalent to about 2,700 dollars. The tax for imported goods is too high so I bought a cheaper machine! I signed up for your channel because I really like the way they work and I learn a lot, even though I do not know any English. GOD bless you and you have won another channel subscriber, sorry for my English that is from Google translator.
