So much better then gravity feed
Posted November 24, 2013
Part of my job is to Paint helicopters in the US Coast Guard. I use the this 3m system all the time. Gravity feed is old school, if you try to paint surfaces that aren't vertical or close to it, then good luck keeping your proper alignment and not sucking air. When using this system, turn your gun upside down, turn your air pressure up until you have paint or stain flowing and all the air is sucked out of the insert. Now you can spray every single angle you want. I even use it upside down, having crawled back into the tail section of a helo. Trust me, this system works so much better then the standard gravity fed system.

I used the system the other day for the first time. I have a HVLP sprayer and the PPS system virtually eliminates clean-up expect for the few minutes it takes to clean the gun. 3M provides a DVD that goes into detail on assembling the system and placing it into operation. A great introduction for finishing my projects
