That's the 514 tip that comes with the gun. I am going to buy a 208 for trim soon. I'm remodelling the 2nd floor of my house soon and want to spray all the trim.

Are you thinking install and spray in place, or pre paint the install and touch up?

Do you do that often? I've tried spraying in place in a remodel setting before, but that was with older tech. I wouldn't even try it with the previous proshot sprayer.

Nope it will be my first time. I've been watching lots of guys do it on Instagram. Apparently this new Graco ultra gun and the fflp tips really cut down on overspray. I'll put paper under the base and cover the whole new hardwood floor just in case. Plus mask other various things.

With the new FFLP tips, in place is not an issue. With some practice you'll need very little masking on the wall for base, 2" tape on the floor if finished, tarp to the tape. I still drape for crown.

I'll be shooting Benjamin Moore advance semi gloss. I see some guys use a 310 tip but also hear a 208 is good too.

Incase you don't know;

The first number is half the fan width, 310 will give you a 6" fan with the gun 12" from the surface being sprayed, a 208 will give you a 4" fan with the gun 12" from the surface being sprayed. Pick the first number based on the trim width.

I'd be using a *10. I believe with Advance tip sheer may be a problem with an *08. The best way to check for tip sheer is spray a piece leaving an area where you can hand apply some of the paint. If the sheens are different you're sheering the paint. The paint has been broken up to a point where the thixotropy has failed.

You may need to go to a *12 for the primer depending on what you're shooting.

I spray the trim with my Graco Triton using a 1.0 needle/nozzle set in the AirPro gun when spraying Advance.

These were sprayed with Advance, AirPro gun is hanging in the background.
