Hi
Looking for an air  psi setting to start with for  the fuji 2.5 gallon pot and a T70 gun
It all depends on the viscosity of the paint and how long the fluid tube is. When you pressurize the tank you will see the pain go up the tube about 1/2 way. When you depress the trigger on the gun, you will then see the paint flow faster. Try setting the pressure at 10psi and see how much paint is delivered. When you are able to atomize the paint and get good coverage, then you found it. If too much decrease pressure, if not enough, increase pressure. I found somewhere between 10-14psi works for me, but again its dependant on the viscosity of the material.

Cheers,
JC

10-13 psi depending on material viscosity

anyone find a USA dist. for this? no luck with those I called
helper: i used a festool "circular saw" to do something simple and it made it really hard

me: exactly, it makes simple cuts complicated and complicated cuts simple

Simple rule of thumb for pot pressure, is pull the trigger on the gun (no atomizing air), stream should be steady and fall in an even arc about 12” from the tip of the gun.

To much fluid pressure cause all kinds of grief.

What fluid hoses and diameter are you guys using for the pressure pots? I'm probably going to be getting one of the pots and 25' fluid hose, but I can't find much on which diameter would be best.

The pot should come with a hose. I use a 1/4” line.

Agreed. Especially considering the hose is another ~$90. Thats an expensive setup.
If at first you don't succeed, redefine success!
