compressor advice

4 posts in this topic

I have a Badger hobby compressor, maximum 28 lbs psi. Wondering whether the psi is too low to do quality lure painting. Stuff I've done so far isn't bad, but a far cry from what I see on here. Seem to have a hard time getting soft, blended edges.

If psi too low, looking for compressor suggestions.

You need more psi. Go to lowes and buy you a compbell,hausfeld iron force only like 100.00 and it will rock anything you can throw at it. Might be a little noise for you, but it works fine for me.

Scoop,

you could also thin your paints more so that they flow better thru your AB. 28 PSI seems like plenty pressure to me. I usually set my pressure between 18 and 25 psi, depending on the type of paint i'm using. If you're using c-tex, I would suggest that you thin it since it will take about 30-35 psi to shoot the stuff. I was using c-tex for sometime but have since moved to comart which is much thinner and flows much better.

I typically shoot createx at 20 psi. Some of the pearls need 25 psi. If you are really having trouble shooting it, check for air leaks on your compressor. The other option is to thin it a little as someone else suggested.
