I thought I would pass on a lesson I learned today, in the hope that I am not the only idiot out here. (I probably am!)
I have a Graco 4900 HVLP Turbine. It usually works very well, but today all it would do is spit and pee out of the needle. I changed to every needle and seat available and still spit and pee.
A thought came to mind: "Go read the manual, idiot." It read: "Don't fill the cup more that 3/4 full, idiot!"
In my desire to limit the times I needed to fill the cup, I had it pretty much full. I poured some of the paint out, and the spit and pee were gone.
Anyone else out there ever gone through such lunacy? Please, someone. I hate to feel all alone and stupid.
Thanks for letting me rant (at myself)
