Hi all,

Just wondering if there is a general rule of thumb for fluid tip sizes on paint gun.

Oil Base materials:
Primer = tip size?
Base coat = tip size?
Clear coat = tip size?
Or is it easier to use 1 tip size for all stages?

Primer = tip size? 1.5-2.0
Base coat = tip size? 1.3-1.5
Clear coat = tip size? 1.4-1.5
Or is it easier to use 1 tip size for all stages? You can if you want. If you do I would use a 1.5
