Default paint sprayer / advice

Guys,
Want to purchase a paint sprayer to run on my air compressor.

Just painting some lawn furniture...never cars or boats. How much CFM @ what PSI do I need??

How do you determine if the paints needs to be thinned or not??

Thanks in advance.

I picked up a Devilbliss gravity feed airgun to paint some wrought iron bannisters and patio funriture. I used a small compressor with a regulator set at about 40 psi.
Cleanup with the gravity feeds air guns are a breeze.


Make sure you delute it down with the proper agent. I used an oil base Rustoleum paint and deluted it down with Mineral spirits. I think it was about about a 4:1 paint to thinner ratio. It came out just fine for my project.

THE PAINT GUN SPEC'S WILL TELL YOU HOW MANY CUBIC FEET PER MINUITE ,CFM.. YOU WILL NEED.IF YOU DO NOT HAVE AN INLINE AIR DRYER MAKE SURE YOU DRAIN THE COMPRESSOR TANK AT LEAST. I YOU BUY A GUN THAT TAKES MORE CFM THAN YOUR COMPRESSOR CAN SUPPLY ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS PAINT IN SHORT BURST, ALLOWING THE COMPRESSOR TO KEEP UP. MAKE SURE YOU BMW IS NOT TO CLOSE!!!!!
