    1.3. start wide open and adjust in. Prolly not even half a turn for universal clear on the fluid. 30-32 psi.

    I think a 1.4 would do better...but the 1.3 is what I have...going to get a 1.4 needle/nozzle set soon. With an rp you can get away with using a 1.3.

      Intrigued to know why? I have the LPH 440 with 1.4 and 1.8 nozzles and it lays all of the SPI primers down beautifully.

        Back to the Vaper Gun do you have to use the supplied plastic cup or can you use some type of throw away? I know nothing about this stuff just wondering what options one can use.

        I will add I will not plan to paint to any extent. It is just to use for Epoxy Primer by SPI.

        My Current one is the Central Pneumatic Professional Purple one with a 1.4 tip. I have not used it as of yet but if the Vaper is better I can use the 1.4 for stuff like parts.

          I asked an opinion about the Iwata and was told I could get great results with a less expensive gun. I have had great results with Finex 100 & 300 guns shooting urethane primer and epoxy primer. No reason other than less expensive for occasional use.

            Anyone using a Devilbiss Finishline for ss or base and clear. I think I will grab a vaper as posted on previous page for epoxy. I sold my iwata last year and now need to paint my daily driver truck and my wifes car could use a coat as well.

                Has anyone used the 3M HG14 Accuspray with disposeable automizing heads? Its supposed to be a great gun for spraying heavy bodied primers and undercoatings.

                  I have the 3M Accuspray with both the 1.8 and 1.4 tips. The 1.8 tip will lay primer fine with very little over spray. I received it while in tech school and both of my instructors who have been spraying since the 70's couldn't believe how little the over spray was. Each went and purchased one for their home shop. I played with the 1.4 tip and it can lay a solid base, but don't expect it to do anything with pearls or metallic. It just can't atomize like a SATA or IWATA.

                  My guns that I use are the purple Northern Tool gun that Barry recommends for epoxy, it sprays it nicely. I then use the Accuspray for normal primer. Sata 4000 BRP for base and clear. Hope that helps.

                      No problem. Here is a picture of the deck lid I messed with with the gun and the 1.4 tip. I spray a 50% overlap and as you can see, especially in the pearl, it just didn't atomize it. I went to 75% overlap halfway through the pearl panel to see if it'd make a difference and it did a little bit but you'd really have to play with this gun and waste materials to get it to work. Same with the metallic blue. Both were on the black base which it laid it fine, there is some tape tracking and solvent pop because I sprayed all the coats and clears in 45 minutes. Just wanted to see how it laid down and didn't care about final results. Clear was okay, but nothing like my SATA. Cool thing about a tech school is you can use their booth, parts and materials to see what works. Don't worry about the droplets, that happens when you don't double check your PPS cup before you tilt and spray.
