View Full Version : adjusting SRI-W

I'm used to adjusting the material and fan knobs by "thread count" on the turn knobs. The SRI-W has no threads so I'm curious how you guys are getting this done?

DeiVilbiss guns don't as the thread is internal. Just count the number of turns from the fully closed position. Tighten them all the way in and then count the number of turns you take counterclockwise.

I took a file and cut a notch on the fluid knob makes it easier to keep track of. I usually back out 11/2 turns for jambs and 2or 21/2 turns for spot repairs. When I first got the gun had some trouble adjustindg air. A factory tech recommended 29 lbs with trigger pulled then screw cheater valve on bottom og gun all way in. Then back out cheater valve and get the right amount of air to correspond with fluid. The gun is a little jewel. For what it,s worth I painted the wheels on a pick up today took a small brush and put liquid mask on the rubber. Much easier to clean up. HTH Vipond

I hooked the gun up yesterday (dry) to test it out. I used a Sharpe Regulator at the gun and had the air adjusting valve (cheater) all the way open and didn't have a problem maintaining 29 PSI at the gun with the trigger pulled.
Maybe I'll be surprised when I put some material in so I'll keep your info in mind
My other gun (Sharpe Platinum) as dots already on the knobs. I just took a Sharpe pen and made one on each.
How did you dial in the fraction 11/2 (eleven seconds) of a turn?

I think thats 1 1/2 or 1.5 turns.

Thanks stranger cause I tried backing that fluid knob out 11 turns and it popped out of the gun :). So I was thinking the 11/2 thing.
Anywho as soon as my order gets here I can start using this puppy and see what's what.

Thanks everyone who reponded. I shot with the gun today and once my arm was in motion and material is being laid down, it's much easier to get.
I laid the topcoat with the 1.5 settings but the clear looked a little to grainy for my taste so I opened it up a tad to 2. Material laid like liquid glass. I can't even see any peel.
