There is a tiny packet of blue light oily lubricant. What can I buy
locally that's equivalent for lubing the gun? It's a composite gun
(Accuspray #10). I have no idea what sort of lube should be used. The
instructions don't reveal what it is.
Second question: is the check valve that they claim only lasts 1 week to
3 months available as a generic item in paint stores that carry other
brands of sprayers? It goes between the cup and the gun, inline in a
piece of vinyl tubing. I hope I don't have to order every little thing
straight from the distributor...shipping will eat me alive, not to
mention waiting for stuff.
It came with a .043 tip and a .061. Judging from the literature I might
need to get the .036 tip for lacquer. Supposedly the .043 will work
with waterborne urethanes, poly, acrylic urethanes, most auto finishes,
enamel, epoxy. The .036 is listed as for lac, shellac, stain, sealer
and again, auto finishes. Any chance that the .043 is close enough in
size to work with lac? The salesman said the .061 is for latex but the
manual shows a .051 for latex and adhesives, enamels. Seems like there
is some overlap. sigh. each tip/nozzle is $48, so I sure don't want to
buy any needlessly.
Since I got the sprayer, I don't think I'll use the Mega on the top of
the oak desk unless Bonakemi gives me a go-ahead for spraying. Nothing
on their web site or on the product says squat about spraying the stuff
(it's for floors--waterborne urethane).
