Never Leave Home Without It – Wearable Parts!

Posted by:

What should you always have on hand?

A carpenter never leaves home without his hammer/nail gun and his nails. A handy man never leaves home without his tool box. Not only do they carry their necessities, but they also carry spare tools and extras just in case.

Whether you are a hobbyist or in the spray finishing profession you should also have spare parts and accessories on hand.

For some having an extra spray gun is a necessity.  Some prefer two of the same spray gun (2 siphon feed or 2 gravity spray guns).  Others prefer one of each. Whatever your preference, always remember that you should have extra wearable parts for these spray guns on hand at all times.

Wearable Parts:

Not everything lasts for a lifetime so always keep in mind that the parts listed above should be periodically cleaned or replaced.

Fuji Fact!

  • 90% of spray gun related  issues we deal with on a daily basis is all about maintenance and wearable parts.

Fuji Tips:

  • Simple daily maintenance should be done once you have finished spraying for the day.
  • A thorough cleaning (dis-assembly and assembly of the spray gun) should be done weekly or when you are ready to store your spray gun for an extended period of time.
  • Do an inspection of the pressure tube and check valve. Make sure that there is no material inside that could dry causing an obstruction to the air flow. If necessary, replace this wearable part and ensure that the nipple attachments to the pressure tube are always clean.

Every 5,000km you should bring your car in for an oil change in order for it to perform at its best. Do we ever argue that theory…No! Your spray gun should be treated the same way. Check it periodically!
