Will this sprayer work with TUNG oil?

Asked by: Patrick124
You could spray tung oil, but it would be inefficient. Typically tung oil would be used for smaller projects like boxes, utensils or tools. While a sprayer is usually used for larger projects like kitchen cabinetry, automobiles and trim. Also, tung oil should be applied liberally while spraying can produce the thinnest coat possible, the application techniques are different. For more discussion call us at 1-800-328-8251.

Just bought the gun I see people spray nice even coats but when I spray at any angle I get a pattern of dots everywhere 

Asked by: Carlos
The Control Spray 250 is set up for thin bodied materials like stain and polyurethane, it is not meant for full thickness latex paints. Adjust the spray for maximum flow with minimum spitting and spray from 6" away from the project. Apply a wet coat with each pass, not 5 fast passes to get it wet, one slow pass. If you can lay the project down and spray down onto it, gravity will help it level too! For more spraying application tips, call us at 1-800-328-8251. Practice.

Can this sprayer be used for Chalk/Mineral paints? I am wanting to use Dixie Belle in particular but am also curious about other brands such as Wise Owl and DIY which is clay based. If it needs to be thinner, how much water do you suggest?

Asked by: Lindsay
We suggest one of our Flexio HVLP models for two reasons. One is they have more power to spray the thicker fluids, the other is that it comes with two different nozzles. The iSpray front end nozzle is 2.5 mm and will spray most unthinned water based paints, including chalk paints. The Detail finish nozzle is 1.8 mm and is set up for fine finishing, like applying a clear coat over the chalk paint. For help choosing the right sprayer for your projects, call us at 1-800-328-8251.

Will this sprayer work with polyurethane

Asked by: Ellisv6
Yes the Control Spray 250 will spray oil based or water based polyurethane. Some thicker materials may require some thinning. As little as 5% makes a big difference in how it sprays. For more tips call us at 1-800-328-8251.

what is the tip size for the control spray 250? (Paint can says use tip size .015)

Asked by: RayP
The paint can is talking about an airless sprayer, the Control Spray 250 is HVLP. It uses a turbine to create airflow for atomization. .015" is a standard latex tip size which would indicate that it will work with your Control Spray 250 if you thin the paint 5-10% with water. For more spraying tips, call us at 1-800-328-8251.

Can you use acrylic pain on the 250?

Asked by: Lupe
Most water based or oil based paints, stains and finishes are fine in the 250. Acrylic paint may require some thinning for better atomization. Never thin more than 20%, 10% is usually sufficient. For more tips call us at 1-800-328-8251.

How do you adjust nozzle to narrow or widen spray area.

Asked by: Alice
There are three pattern settings. Vertical fan, horizontal fan and detail. With the air horns at top and bottom you will get a horizontal fan, with the horns at left and right you will get a vertical fan and with the horns at a 45 degree angle you will get a round "detail" pattern. Typically with an HVLP sprayer you would be 6" from the project. But if you move away slightly the pattern gets bigger and if you move in slightly the pattern gets smaller. Also, if you have the paint flow up high the pattern is bigger and the paint flow down low for a smaller pattern. It's the combination of all of these adjustments that gives you control of the spray pattern size. This can all be practiced with water in the gun. For more help call us at 1-800-328-8251.

Can I use a sprayer on a ceiling and what kind of paint should I use

Asked by: TDanny
The Control Spray is meant for thin bodied material like stain and polyurethane. It will struggle with latex paint even when thinned. You can also only tilt the Control Spray up, up to 45 degrees before risking paint in the turbine motor. Look at our Flexio 4000 for painting your ceiling with thick latex paint.

I am debating between the double duty and 250. I want to use it around the house for a new cedar fence, possibly trim work, painting doors white, deck stain. Is there much difference between the two models? Thanks

Asked by: Ryan86
Neither of them will work with latex paint without a lot of thinning. Better to look at our Flexio line of HVLP, they have more power and larger nozzles for thick paints. https://www.wagnerspraytech.com/?s=flexio

I would like to stain my front porch but don't know how it's a dark stain color. It was done before I purchase the house a week ago what should I do and how does preparations go?

Asked by: carol44
If it's bare wood, you can just spray your stain, if it's previously stained or painted it may require sanding or cleaning to prepare. Adjust the sprayer for maximum flow with minimum spitting. Too much fluid exiting the sprayer will cause spitting, cut down on stain flow to reduce spit. Spray from 6-10" from the project and cover anything you don't want to spray.
