likely needs updating. I only have one trap & works well keeping water from my bead blaster & air tools . But I have read this paint deal is not forgiving. Please update me as
to what I need to do. :rolleyes:

Do a search on air filtration, air system plumbing, etc. Lot's of good information already on this site.

You'll be the only one now that I've sold the shop and half the guns with it.

I'm left with only a fraction of what I used to have. :cry: :cry:

I have a Astro Star that I've been using since the 1990's.
It came with 3 different tip sizes.
It sprays most anything really well.
I have never needed to replace anything on it or rebuild it.
I use a Iwata for my clear now that I have one but that Astro
is almost as good, it definitely puts more paint out.

My old saying is,
The one you use the most will be the one that will work the best.
