    I bought the harbor freight purple gun with a 1.4 tip. I was going to give it a try as is. If it doesn't work too good, there are quite a few videos where they drill out the tip to 2.0 or 2.2 to be a...

    I thinned the primer with paint thinner this time, 15%. It looked good to me on the cardboard. Then started painting and it did the same thing on the mill. The siphon gun I think has a 1.4 tip. If...

    I used acetone which is what rustoleum suggests. Maybe I didn't have the right mixture. It was a pretty warm day too, I don't know if that matters.

    No I did not strain it. I just bought some strainers today at harbor freight before I read your post. I just bought the 60 to 70 mesh strainers, will that be good enough?
