IDEAL PROJECTS FOR THE 118 SIPHON GUN

A SMALL COMPRESSOR AND AIR REGULATOR IS ALL YOU NEED  THIS INEXPENSIVE  3/4 hp. TANKLESS DIAPHRAM COMPRESSOR, C/W REGULATOR, WILL EASILY POWER THE 118 SIPHON GUN. THIS IS WHAT WAS USED ON MANY OF THE PROJECTS BELOW. THE LARGER THE  h.p. OF THE COMPRESSOR, THE EASIER IT IS ON THE MOTOR AND THE FASTER IT WILL BUILD PRESSURE AND SHUT OFF. A RESERVOIR TANK IS ALSO GOOD IDEA WHEN PURCHASING A COMPRESSOR.

EASY TO CLEAN

GRAB THOSE EXTRA JAM JARS UNDER THE CUPBOARD AND STORE YOUR LEFT OVER MATERIALS AIR TIGHT UNTIL YOUR NEXT PROJECT. NOTE THE VARIOUS SIZE JARS AVAILABLE THAT UTILIZE THE SAME JAR RING. A SMALL AMOUNT OF THINNER AND PAPER TOWEL TO WIPE THE TUBE AND JAR GASKET CLEAN IS ALL YOU NEED TO CLEAN UP QUICKLY.

ELIMINATE CLEANING MESSY BRUSHES

SHOWN HERE IS A OIL BASED SATIN POLYURETHANED FINISH BEING APPLIED TO THIS OAK MISSION STYLE BENCH . TAKE NOTE OF THE METAL CAN USED RATHER THAN THE GLASS MASON JAR. A SMALL PAINT CAN WI WAS DRILLED OUT AND SCREWED ONTO THE BOTTOM OF THE GUN. (SPRAY RIGHT OUT OF THE CAN) bench3web.jpg (14547 bytes)

BEAUTIFUL POLYURETHANE AND LACQUER FINISHES CAN BE APPLIED WITH PROFESSIONAL RESULTS. NO BRUSH MARKS TO SPOIL YOUR EFFORTS EITHER.

SHOWN HERE IS A OIL BASE STAIN BEING APPLIED (20 PSI) TO THIS PINE HARVEST TABLE. STAINING TAKES THE MOST PRACTICE IN ORDER TO ACHEIVE A UNIFORM SURFACE COVERAGE.  THREE COATS OF OIL BASED POLYURETHANE (25 PSI) FINISHED THIS PROJECT OFF WITH PROFESSIONAL RESULTS. spraytableweb.jpg (10477 bytes)

WHAT A PAIN IT IS BRUSHING INTO HARD TO REACH AREAS WITHOUT GETTING RUNS AND LEAVING BRUSH STROKES BEHIND. ILLUSTRATED HERE IS A INTERIOR SHUTTER FINISHED WITH A MELAMINE PAINT.

THE VISCOSITY OF THE MELAMINE REQUIRED A SLIGHT THINNING OF THE PAINT TO ACHIEVE A NICE SMOOTH FINISH. THE MELAMINE PAINT WAS SPRAYED AT 35 PSI.

SHOWN HERE IS AN EXTERIOR OIL BASE DECK STAIN BEING APPLIED TO A LATTICE PRIVACY FENCE AT 20 PSI. BRUSHING LATTICE IS NO FUN WHEN THE EXCESS STAIN GETS SQUEEZED OUT OF THE BRUSH AND RUNS TO THE OPPOSITE SIDE LEAVING DARK STAINED RUNS. SPRAYING ELIMINATED THIS PROBLEM.

HERE IS SOME OUTDOOR FUNITURE JUST WAITING FOR THE FINISH OF YOUR CHOICE. DON'T FORGET THAT LITTLE FENCE IN THE BACK EITHER.

IN THIS PICTURE WE SEE ANOTHER APLICATION OF EXTERIOR STAINS IN PROGRESS ON THIS ROUGH SAWN CEDAR POOL HOUSE. THIS WAS A LARGE TASK FOR THE 118 SIPHON GUN DUE TO THE 16oz CUP SIZE AND THE 2.5" CIRCULAR SPRAY PATTERN.

THIS DOOR WAS FINISHED IN TWO COATS (IN ONE AFTERNOON AND HUNG BY THE EVENING)WITH A EXTERIOR ALKYD PAINT SPRAYED AT 3O PSI. SOME THINNING WAS INVOLVED FOR THE PAINT TO LEVEL OUT AND PRODUCE A SMOOTH FINISH. NO MESSY BRUSHES TO WASH UP AFTER EITHER.
