What should you always have on hand? A carpenter never leaves home without his hammer/nail gun and his nails. A handy man never leaves home without his tool box. Not only do they carry their necessities, but they also carry spare tools and extras just in case. Whether you are a hobbyist or in the spray finishing profession you should also have spare parts and accessories on hand. For some having an extra spray gun is a necessity. Some prefer two of the same spray gun (2 siphon feed or 2 gravity spray guns). Others prefer one of each. Whatever your preference, always
How and when should I clean my turbine filter? There is no quick answer but a thorough cleaning of your system should be done periodically. As mentioned in a previous blog, it’s a good habit to clean your spray system at the end of each work session or project completion. It only takes a few minutes and in the end will ensure that your turbine lasts you a long time. When it comes to the filters, it is also good to clean them after a few uses and especially before you pack the system into storage. Clean Filter(s) are a Must! Clean filters
Fine Woodworking Magazine Stamp of Approval In the October 2014 issue of Fine Woodworking magazine © 2014 by the Taunton Press author Teri Masaschi (a finishing pro with 45 years of experience) reviewed 14 different HVLP spray systems available in the United States, with stationary turbines that connect to the spray gun with a hose.

The 3M PPS system offers great versatility with the Fuji T75G™ top feed spray gun. It allows spraying in any direction, straight up, sideways, etc. How is this done? The 3M PPS system consists of a reusable plastic cup with disposable liners and lids. When the spray gun is connected to the 3M PPS system then attached to the turbine hose, and the turbine is turned on, the plastic cup is pressurized forcing the liner on the inside the H/O cup to start to collapse. This will push the finish in the liner into the spray gun no matter the orientation of the spray gun.
