    Re: Spraying cabinet interiors, what is the proper technique

    I gave the interiors a light sand tonight and applied another coat of General Finish pre cat WB urethane. I cut down the pressure as much as possible and applied a wetter coat (manufacturer recommends 2 - 3 mils) in the order suggested, I made all the difference. The amount of overspray was considerably less and the wetter coat compensated for the remainder. Thanks to all for your help.

    PS: I am using a Walcom Slimline HVLP with 1.7 nozzle

      Kevin, glad to hear things are working better for you.
      I'm not familiar with that gun, but 1.7 seems a little large for clear wb lacquer, more suitable for pigmented wb lacquer or auto body primer. If you can get a 1.4, that might work better. If you get into spray finishing and you are happy with your gun, then getting a couple of needle/nozzle/air cap combos can be extremely beneficial if working with different waterbased products.

        You mean 'Just say OV' the beer? Or the other OV. If its the beer, I didn't know you could buy it out west (insert vague memories of my uncles and Grandpa handing me an OV instead of a blue when I was out east in University...).

          Old Vienna, possibly the worst beer commercial ever. OV, OV, oh yeah

          I think they keep a small stack at the back of my local liquor board just for me, he, he...

          No cans, no six packs and no two four's though.

            lol, when I was a teenager, my parents used to by cases of 1/2 O.V. and one half Carling O'keef.

            That's a few years back.. ;)

              I do have a 1.4 as well, I will play around with that. I'm not sure how to determine what tip I should be using for different finishes. Do you base the selection on the viscosity alone? To say I have a lot to learn is an understatement!
