I have the same setup, and use it with the 3M PPS system. Makes clean up even easier! I agree with using a gravity feed. I feel they are also more maneuverable. One thing I really like about the PPS system is that gun orientation no longer matters. You can spray upside down.tjbnwi said:Gravity feed is the only way to go. Cup completely empties, can be cleaned disconnected from the air source, better line of sight to the cup. I use the Fuji Q4 with the Xps gun. Tom
I use the Fuji Q4 with XPS gun. It's really a nice setup. I really like the PPS system. You can change paint/stain really easily. Just remove the liner and cap it. Cleanup is about as easy as it gets. Pull the trigger and pour solvent in the inlet. The XPS gun you don't need a stand for. It has a fold out leg that keeps it level and steady. The capacity of mine is 28oz, but you can get other sizes.dale rex said:Rustbucket.................. do you have the Accuspray(3m) setup with turbine? Or do you run a regulator with compressed air? I have a 3M (accuspray) 240 turbine with #10 siphon feed gun. Thought about getting the PPS cup but went with the standard aluminum cup. I love the siphon feed Accuspray gun. It has good output, and is highly adjustable with numerous different combinations of needle/nozzle and air cap combinations. I think the siphon feed is better balanced and hold a full quart. Not sure what the capacity of the gravity feed cups is, but to me would feel top heavy.
100% agree on the cleanup with the airless. I figure it takes a gallon of thinner, if spraying laq, and half gallon of mineral spirits to clean/flush and store the line/s for next use. Strange, but I always flush/fill the system and hose for storage with mineral spirits. To start, run and clean the rig $75 in labor and solvents. Don't use it that frequently.Thanks for the tips and advice.
I bought a cheapo Cambell Hausfeld gravity feed to experiment with. If I like it I will get a better quality setup.
Honestly I wish it was quick and easy to break out the airless but cleanup is just too labor intensive for the little projects.
