Back to the original post by the mod, what is the purpose of the denatured alcohol? Is it to thin the primer so that it would work properly into the airless paint sprayer?

The denatured alcohol I used is the solvent needed to clean the pump. Bin (the primer) is thin enough as it is and doesn’t need reducing.

Oh, and I just got a new pump and am using it for the first time this week. It's an air assisted unit and my hope is that it will give me the finish of an HVLP, but with production closer to a airless. So far I'm really liking it.

I see Dean's demo sold you on the rig. I think that will be the kind I buy next. Just had a cabinet job fall through last week. People got an offer on their house as is. Was looking forward to spraying it.

Yep, it was time well spent trying out Deans setup. I'm still figuring out the air and fluid pressure mix for water base satin impervo. I'm getting allot of paint build up on the air cap, and I didnt get ANY when I was working with Dean.

Was actually talking with Scott of Facebook last night and he gave me his exact setting for it. Hopefully it works and I can get past this experimentation process I'm in. We'll see on Monday.

Thanks.

lol that was before the missing latch, but the kids knew it was of value and produced the latch.

There is a ets 150 that is not pictured. I would like to get the vac handle you got, along with the systainer cart.

If I remember correctly Dean complained about the cap early on, probably a setting issue or a gun issue.
