313 is good. We also like to use a 311. Still gives you the 6" fan but a nice fine finish.Looking for best tip size to spray interior trim. I have a graco x5 and use use behr paint. I have a 313 but think maybe there's something better. I am new to spraying
I use this...While were on the subject of spraying trim I have a question. What do you use to fill nail holes in trim?
Screened washers behind the tip are worth every dime they cost, and they don't cost that many dimes....this reminds me, I've gotta get some gun filters for my spray gun before I spray some ceilings next week...I almost forgot!
Wood filler doesn't shrink partially because it's a chemical cure rather than an air cure. It's much too slow applying it satisfactorily when filling numerous holes of different sizes on larger jobs. Wood filler is much more appropriate for stain work, not painting work.. What do you use to fill nail holes in trim?
I've tried painters putty but always leaves a divot. I have better luck with wood filler. I don't have much experience with new construction. We do primarily custom repaints.
Ya, that lightweight spackle is good stuff. It's almost a trade off in time as to leaving it raised up a bit and sanding it down or just applying it over the same holes twice (after first fill dries and shrinks a little). If you're adept at using a putty knife, you can putty knife this stuff on twice (smooth and level) and not need to sand it afterwards (the 2nd pass will dry flush).313 is good.

Fill the hole and leave it high. The I like to take a wood block and wrap a self stick palm sander sheet and wrap it around the wood block. When the drydex is dry, I sand it with the sanding block I made. I don't like to use sanding sponges because I feel it digs some of the filler out. This also could be me so I use the homemade sanding block to prevent the dig out from happening.
