mark dennis: I am not an expert either. This airless sprayer does seem to do everything
that I need for it to do. If you plan to use one daily as your main income,
you may want to invest in a commercial grade airless sprayer.
rockethead555: Hello whats the best brand airless painter (price vs quality) u recommend
for the home owner and/or the professional painter? would this Ryobi fit
the bill ? how would you rate the other ones say Wagner, Titan etc Im not
an expert at painting .. good Video, Regards
Sam Elliott: I just purchased this unit from HD for $140, but I wasn't sure if I want to
keep it, however, this video certainly helped. I plan to keep it since I
plan to use it for my 2 homes, I agree that it isn't the best thing out
there. Thanks for the vid.
mini020107: can you use regular paint or you need special airless paint. im think to
paint my house with valspar semi gloss paint with primer.
tonyaalicia11: what size tip do i need for spraying primer. we are looking to prime our
3500 sq ft house new drywall thought this would be best
eli93402: I have the same prayer (it's the green model but I'm pretty sure its the
same) and I'm having trouble getting an even coat. I'm using latex paint
thats been thinned down and the sprayer is on full pressure. I use a
consistent motion and over lap each spray by 50%, but when light hits the
walls just right you can see streaks. It's really frustrating having to
paint the walls multiple times trying to get rid of the streaks. Any tips?
I'm about to give up on the sprayer and just roll everything.
maciverandy1: sure no prob!
maciverandy1: when he talks about the priming contamination he means the hose that is
next to the main hose that pulls the paint. normally you want a "crap"
bucket to spray all the contamination into. I actually keep these two hoses
in different buckets for the whole spraying process. it also helps to have
a bucket to spray all your waste in after you are done. spray the paint
left in your line until you notice the water thinning the paint out and
then spray the rest into the crap bucket.
andresstatestreet: Great videos. Thx
Dee Cruz: Can this sprayer take acrylic paint?
mark dennis: There are a lot of tricks, but to help you out, you blend it in by starting
your arm moving before you spray the paint and keep your arm moving after
you stop. This causes the paint to flow without having an actual starting
or stopping place. Hope this helps you out...
mark dennis: I don't separate the hoses, but I did manage to figure out the process of
using the waste bucket to save some of the otherwise wasted paint and to
get rid of the watered down paint. It took me a couple of times to figure
it out though. I'm slower than most... Thanks for sharing your knowledge
mark dennis: It won't help on paint vapors, but when I spray ceilings, I don't want to
breath the paint mist. Thanks for your interest!
mark dennis: Thank you SO much! I am new to using an airless sprayer, so I can use all
the help I can get. Feel free to point out anything else you see.
ragandoil: Gday mate .. you didn't bleed the gun, you put contamination into your main
bucket from the priming .... if you get a run on the wall roller it out ..i
do over a 1000 sq ft per day
mark dennis: Absolutely. In fact, acrylics are thinner than Latex. The Ryobi paint
station comes with a .015 sprayer tip and .013-.015 is the recommended size
for acrylics. This sprayer can spray just about anything, but you may need
to purchase some smaller tips if you are going to be spraying stains or
varnishes. They are thinner and the tip that is included is better for
acrylics, latex, and oil based paints. I hope this helps.
ragandoil: Gday Mate , ... millgod no vapour from water based paint , particles are
almost dry when the hit the floor ... when using oil base ... vapor mask
tonyaalicia11 ... 515 id a good size tip .. if your doing dry wall 1st coat
40% water and paint mix .. called mist coat . then over coat when dry
Oscar Briceno: u never gonna get even coats if someone isnt backrolling...duh
milllgod: hey buddy, I believe that protection there on your face is a dust
mask...which is probably usefull if your sanding paint, but i'm not too
sure about how well it protects against paint vapors...
AndroidPop: Can't wait to see the next video, I'm gonna start using mines tonight
mark dennis: Sure. I am painting my pole barn with it in about a month and I will put
out a video on it when I do. I am sure you are going to like yours. I
really like mine...
mark dennis: Here is my thoughts: #1, if the paint is too thin, it will run down the
wall easier than when it is thick. #2, with the pressure on full, it will
be spraying out the maximum amount of paint, which can also cause streaks
because there is too much paint, and #3, you could be using too large of a
tip for the paint you are using. The last one isn't as likely because latex
is pretty thick, however, you are thinning it, so, it could be a
possibility. Thinning may be your only problem. Hope this helps!
maciverandy1: 5-17 or 5-15
Mark Dalius: Great stuff, sir. Very nice to see somebody else give a solid tutorial.
Actually looking forward to the project! Thanks very much.
mark dennis: Sorry I somehow missed your post till now. A sprayer is definitely the way
to go. I use a 415 or a 515 for just about everything. It is recommended
that you use a .015 to .017 for latex and a .017 to .019 for oil base
primers. I use a 415 and a 515 for just about everything, but then I
usually use latex. I hope this helps. I will be doing a post on my blog
explaining tip sizes this weekend. Thanks for visiting, mark
Chris Verrico: thanks
maciverandy1: u didn't get overspray on the window? shouldn't you have masked it?
Goofy Goof: Cool, Watched the videos. I just ordered one myself. Looks like I got a
good Sprayer. Thanks for the info. in the videos.
mark dennis: No, I didn't get any over-spray on the window. I used a brush to paint the
trim and window sill. Thanks for watching!
Jerri Davis: Very Interesting!
Henry Urrego: very bad explication only for 2m2
mark dennis: I really like mine. When the weather breaks, I'll be painting the pole barn
and I'll do another video then.
Chris Verrico: How do u spray without getting flashing or holidays or start and stop marks
I'm so sick of old school brushing and rolling
