    Well, I can now answer my own questions, at least a little bit:

    I ordered the 6' Fuji whip hose, as it was a few bucks less than the 5' Titan.
    - But I never even tried it, & immediately sent...

    No recommendation from me, but realize that Floetrol is not used to thin the paint, but rather to help slow drying time.

    Someone else mentioned heat from the turbine might be causing your paint...

    I don't have the experience to say.

    But from what I've read, a powerful HVLP system is better because there's less overspray & less waste.
    It's just not as fast.

    If you're thinking about a turbine system, then you're looking at a pretty large investment.

    I've neve rused soap, heck I never even heard of this before. (Preyy cool, in a high-maintenance kind of way.)

    But 1 minute of Googling turned up this:

    Good stuff!

    Andrew, you're right, a replacement garden hose fitting (for a 3/4"hose, though) should work. If I can find them, I'll just get one for emergencies and out it on the shelf.

    I never knew this. I thought BLO was still heated.

    Well then, definitely go with a polymerized oil. I know from the fine art world that metallic driers make paint less durable, (vs sun-dried or...

    Thanks, Jim.

    I appreciate your thoughts, but you're not talking about whip hoses.

    "Whip hose" is a very standard term with HVLP systems. I'm surprised you haven't heard of them, actually.

    HVLP Whip Hose - Recommendations?

    I'm looking to add a whip hose to my 4-stage HVLP turbine system. (A Capspray 95)

    I'm wondering 2 things: What length is considered best for my use, and are plastic connectors a bad idea?
    I'll...

    Hey, Tom.

    Yeah I was puzzled by the "no airless sprayer" thing as well. Luckily, I found a really experienced tech guy today and got lots of clarifications & new info.
    First, understand that...

    Well, I still have one big decision to make, maybe you guys can help if you have the time to absorb this:

    I need to decide if I should use a bleeder or a non-bleeder for this job.

    I will...

    Jim.

    Yes, I will definitely experiment & practice first. Thx.
    I'll also have 2 non-bleed guns to try (The Accu 10 and the Maxum II) if I get a large needle-cap set for the latter. Plus I have...

    Well, you guys made me question the sense in all this, so

    I just picked up a used 4-stage Titan Capspray 95 system. It does 9.5 psi and is already a non-bleed system.
    I can't really afford it,...
  17. External Air Relief Valve, for a Turbinaire MiniPro?

    I'm trying to find an external Air Relief Valve, for a Turbinaire MiniPro, so I can use my non-bleeder Accuspray 10 gun with this 3-stage turbine.


    Looking for ideas, as the original is...
  18. Thanks, Jim. Are you saying the non-bleeder...

    Thanks, Jim.

    Are you saying the non-bleeder gun has more pressure?
    That would make sense, except don't I then have to have some kind of bleed valve on the turbine or hose? (or at least a...

    Another question just occurred to me:


    My Turbinaire system is designed for a bleeder gun.

    I bought the Accuspray #10 separately, and again have never used it. This is a non-bleeder type,...

    Thanks, John.

    No I'll be spraying outdoors, with a wind-break fabric set up. I just have to wait for a warmish day.

    Good idea about thinning the primer and multiple coats.

  21. Spaying Heavy Paint with a 3-Stage HVLP ?

    That's what I got, thx. Good to know it's so caustic, as I haven't used it yet.

    Do you think that with this stuff, there's no need for brake cleaner or acetone?

    I don't have compressed air, though I guess I could use the output of a shop vac. - Or just use the hair dryyer, as I have been doing, maybe with a "concentration funnel" on the tip.

    But how do...
