I have a Campbell hausfield double piston pump paint sprayer, which I've used successfully a few times to paint interiors, and most recently kitchen cabinets (laid outside).
I noted that the spray tip drips...the interiors I've done thus far didn't matter, the drips are small and the house is a rental, and I avoided dripping on the cabinet doors by beginning and ending my stroke before and after spraying the door surfaces.
But I am about to embark upon spraying an 11x16 room in my own home, which has a beaded board ceiling, crown moldings, and beaded board 36" up the wall. I did the carpentry myself, and I'm a perfectionist to a fault so I don't want my beautiful woodwork job to have tiny litle drops of paint on it.
I plan to spray prime the entire room, and then spray semi-gloss trim paint on all the woodwork. I'll roll the wall surfaces for texture.
How do I keep the spray tip from leaking/dripping? I'm using latex paint (Latex Kilz primer with Glidden Semi Gloss trim paint). I've used this combination in the past, and even at the lowest possible setting, I still feel like I'm pushing too much paint. I theorize that I'm using the wrong tip...which is a .15 that came with the machine.
However, I can find no information online about this particular "drip" issue.
Please help...I'm trying to get this room done for Christmas. It's all sanded and ready to go.
