Thanks, ordered a set... They look like caulk tip condoms.

Yes. I use a 310FF tip for Breakthrough, Scuff-X, Regal Select and others.

Sent my 6 year old levels in and received these in return .

Turn around time was six days, which is important, because who wants to be without their levels.

Great customer service

nice. I got a 15 year old 2 foot Stabila that is getting really ruff. Missing cap one end cap, the other is smashed. And the center bubble is so old the liquid went clear.

The paint you choose will have a TDS to head you in the right direction.

If you're using Advance, Pro Classis or Emerald Urethane, I'd use an FF LP 410 if I had to use an airless.

Consider making rotators, makes life so much easier.

Yep. I have sprayed a bunch of ProClassic with my 210 tip. The 4" fan is a little on the small side for doors. The FF tips also let you dial down the pressure.

With the FFLP x10 tip, should be around 1100 psi at the pump shooting PC or Advance, about 1400 for Emerald.

You must change the seal (it cimes with the tip, the yellow one) in the tip holder for the FFLP to work, it is where the magic starts.

12" from target, the door should take 25 seconds or so to spray.

Are the FFLP the green tips? Looks like they are RAC X and my gun is set up for RAC IV... I think, very much still figuring this out. I'll have to look into what all I need to change to get the RAC X tips working but it looks like the way to go for spraying the doors.

Those rotators are awesome looking. Do you keep them in your shop? I can't see myself building them or bringing them on site where I'd be doing any future spraying but it's got me thinking. I'll probably resign to the 1x2 screwed to the top of the door technique.

You just need to buy the blue tip guard.

The rotators "break down", I can take them where they’re needed. They’ll get moved to the shop in Colorado when I go back there.

(As you can see, the wife does not use the glider......[she doesn’t need it honestly])

(I have no clue how to add a photo from an iPad, hopefully the link works.)

Little SOBs tried hiding it in the high racks before putting it out on the floor at HD. I'm onto them though.......
