Isn't that bonded?

An Earthed neutral is a ground.

Isn't the neutral tied to ground at the transformer?

The neutral and the ground are essentially the same thing. Main difference is the ground isn't suppose to carry current unless there is a fault in the system, and the neutral is a current carrying conductor. They are bonded in the circuit breaker box.

There are exceptions, but it's in odd commercial supplies mostly

It's just a technicality I guess. Because the neutral is bonded to the ground wire which is Earthed. So essentially the neutral wire is Earthed. But that's not the way it should stated.

Got a new spray gun (not my hand. It's in my helpers hand) graco silver plus.......with a flat tip (old school not reversible tip).

Sweetmother of Mary! Dang near no overspray. Can get just inches away from the sidewalk. No drop cloth. Just use shield for the last couple of inches! Overspray is still possible if your technique is off. At the same time was using another machine with low pressure tip. Still lots of overspray.

A guy on YouTube is a cranky old dude......but tons of info on the art of painting. (Mike the painter) he hates reverse tips. Extension tubes and swivel heads (all tons of overspray) he was right.

I think I needed a die grinder:jester:
I was replacing my struts and the bolt was not coming off the frame after trying torchs, grinders, sawzall, and hour later I said " screw it I need a die grinder " took 1 min. really suprised me when the strut dropped. really well priced compared to Milwaukee and dewalt. well worth the 100 bucks
