What should a guy pay for a spray gun

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I bought a auto trim spray gun at a flee market in the US for $15.00. Does price make a difference??

Also can someone explain how the 2 control adjustments should be set??
one controls how far the needle travels and the other controls the amount of air flow I beleive??

Hi PP,
Do you mean "touch up gun"? A touch up gun usually holds about 8oz or 250ml of paint, compared to a regular gun whose pot will hold about four times as much. At Princess Auto, the POWERFIST touch up gun goes for 39.99 (p/n 0450387).
As to the price, that would depend on what condition it is in.
There usually are two adjustment knobs on paint guns. One as you may have already noticed affects how far you can move the trigger. This one adjusts the fluid needle, hence the volume of paint material that will come out of the nozzle. Please note that paint volume is also dependent on air pressure which should be controlled before it enters the gun. Usual pressure for touch up guns is 30-50lbs.
The other knob adjusts spray pattern, which varies from circular to oblong in shape.
Hope this will be of assistance.
