Member Projects / Re: Ipe Offcut Table Tops
« Last post by ear3 on Today at 11:55 AM »
Thanks for the suggestion.  My default oil finish up until a year ago was actually Osmo, but I switched over to Surfix because I preferred the relatively greater richness it brought out in the wood.  Given the commercial concerns about Surfix, however, I will look to see if the Osmo might qualify as an appropriate finish.

Nice tables, Edward.  It looks a fun puzzle to put together.  You seem to tackle some challenging and cool projects. 

I did not see that anyone posted here about Osmo Polyx Hard Wax Oil 3054 Matte Clear.  It is formulated for floors and furniture.  For my take, it would be ideal for your table tops.  It is stain resistant and safe enough for children's toys. It is a two-coat process that you apply similar to Surfix products.  It dries ready for use in less than 48 hours.  If a repair is ever needed, just clean and apply another coat.

I buy mine online from World Class Supply in Delaware.

Finishing and Painting / Re: Help on Spraying BM Advance

Found on Kijiji a Kremlin 15C25 ( 15:1) pump with Xcite gun, couple of extra tips, pump fluid and some filters. The seller says it is 5 years old and has only sprayed water based clears through it. Looks fairly clean in the photos. What type of questions should I ask them and what test can I do if I were to move forwrd on this. His asking price is $2400.00 CAD and paid $5100 CAD 5 years ago.

Cheers,
JC

@JCLP

Such a shame you can’t get Wagner.

Look at finish with the pump and gun

Thanks for all the input. I visited the local Festool dealer today, but unfortunately they did not have the RO 90 in stock. This is probably the sander that I will end up getting.
 I will probably order it online as I can get it for €115 cheaper , which I can use to get abrasives. And the local dealer only offers a 14 day money back and a 2 year guarantee.

p.s
Cheese, you can see my work at www.timberpointarchery.com

I see didn’t know that. So they are a extra filter you can have in addition to your inline filter

So you can be super filtered  😂.


So you choose filters based on product.



I choose tips based on product and then select correct filter for the tip which is stated by manufacture that’s how I thought you had to do it.

Finer tip = finer filter

Yes.

Super is good....

Yes

General Friendly Chat / Re: AAA - anyone still use?
« Last post by McNally Family on Today at 10:40 AM »
We joined AAA in December of last year (2017), and placed a membership card into each of our 3 children's stockings.  All of our children drive, but also ride with their friends.  Since the benefits are attached to the card itself, and not just to the automobile, we felt it was beneficial for our children to have that protection regardless of whose car they were in.  In my opinion, it is cheap insurance (and peace of mind for us), against our kids being stranded somewhere with an empty tank of gas or dead battery.

Got the little strainer in bottom of hopper then I use 100mesh in pump and  100 to 200 mesh in the gun. 

Wagner have a chart and 8 thou to 10 require 200mesh

I don’t always flush mine out to be honest.  If I’m using same product over a few days or week I leave it primed.   Only till I know I’m finished or change product do I give it a proper clean flush through.



Just had another quick search Xcite doesn’t really come up with much really.
Found a non UK site selling filters I think are for the gun?

Still can’t tell if it’s tooles filter change.

@jmbfestool

I choose the filter based on the product not the pump.

I flush mine because I feel/think/believe most clogs come from the hose. The product sits in the hose it can accumulated on the walls and congeal, fluid starts to move and the gunk ends up in the tip. I also have extra hoses on hand.

I believe the Xicte gun does not come up much because it is part of a package. Kremlin does not market them hard individually.

Those filters go between the flat tip and the gun body. I want to try them, keep forgetting to order some. they also work as a pre office so you can drop the fluid pressure some.

These are the filters I have on my guns. I purchased extra housing to go between the pump and the hose.

I change the filters without the need of tools.

Replying to your previous comment sorry you can’t get Wagner stuff! Shame!


Regarding this comment

I have no knowledge on the Kremlin pump but going off a graco piston pump.

Wear on the piston is a big cost to replace. 

It’s not bad replacing the packers but if they have been worn and left it could then have caused damage to piston

Maybe the Kremlin is the same?

Graco has a counter so tells you how many litres it has sprayed in its life time so you know how much life it has left in the piston pump before replacing.

Does the Kremlin have that?


Best thing is call Kremlin and ask them what parts wear out and how much do them parts cost if they need replacing.

Then you know if something does go you you haven’t lost out.



I did that with graco I gave them a call when I was looking.
