Hey all,

Looking for some advice from any in the know what I should be looking at for a new spray gun. Also if anyone knows some good place around Brisbane to check them out let me know. Doesn't have to be anything too high-tec, as it is only to paint my bicycle with (for the moment) :lol: if I ever intend to paint myself I would fork out for a good one. I just don't want some $5 ebay piece of s**t that will break within 10 minutes.

Also I am most likely painting in acrylic, is 2mm the best nozzle to use? And is 2.5mm better if I intend to use a high build primer?

Cheers Nick

Hi,

I have a gravity feed, and the do have there advantages. I got mine for $150 i think, it has sprayed many a car with no worries, besides the pot cracked and i have only dodgily fixed it yet.

I forget what size tips i use personally, but i normally will have a quick quide on the box for it.

Sweet, do you remember where you got it from?

At the moment was looking at getting one of these http://www.ppc.au.com/spraygun2.htm

I have seen better Iwata ones but don't wanna fork out for one of these just to paint my bike with :P

Oh s**t sorry, i was supposed to tell you where i got it, i thought i did, haha.

I got it from a auto paint supplier in browns plains, in a little shopping village on the corner of browns plains and wembley roads.

That gun looks good enough, if your not going to be doing pro jobs then go for it.

Cheaper guns can be fine, as long as they get the required cleaning. Sometimes the problem with cheap guns is that people tend to not clean them properly, then they f**k up, and thats when people say" f**k s**t gun, can't believe i bought it"

it will be fine.

Yeah I'm pretty pedantic with cleaning tools/my car/workspace....actually pretty much everything except my bedroom. I'll give the ppc one a whirl and see how it goes. Cheers for the help.

looks fine dude :)

some metalics need a gravity gun for them to spray correctly..

i have a Star gun i got for $150 and works great

DONT stick it in thinners
just use thinners on the outside and in the pot to clean it


and get a damn stand for it as well!

also a 1.4mm tip is a good tip for most stuff

Just get a few nozzles and use which one you feel is easiest to get a good spray.

Supercheap have ALRIGHT gravity feeds for like $80

I was thinking more a 1.4mm one so i can get good atomisation, combined with using a smaller touch up gun i get hardly any runs in any of the....tight places :wink:
