Paint gun

#22
Has anyone used the new Devilbiss Tekna Clear coat gun ?
It’s a great gun, better atomization than most and you better like painting fast because it’s a bit of a hoser. It’s my second favorite clear gun. 1.3 with HV20 aircap works for me and the 2100, 5100, 4100 SPI clears. If you have really big hands the handle may feel a little small so I’ve read from other people using it.

Can't speak for the "clear coat gun" but I do have a Tekna Copper 7E7 and it sprays very nice. Large fan and consistent results. Came with a 1.3 and 1.4 tip set.
68 Coronet R/T, I have the Copper gun too. I don't have much experience, but , I really like the Copper gun. I wanted the clear gun after seeing an ad. Got it on ebay for a heck of a deal.

Jorge, my Tekna clear coat gun arrived yesterday. It was supposed to come with 1.2, 1.3 1.4 tips. Unfortunately, they mistakenly boxed two 1.2 tips and a 1.3 tip. I've only used a 1.4 tip with my Tekna Copper, spraying base coat and UC. I see that you are using the 1.3. Do you think I'll be ok with the 1.3 spraying Universal Clear, or should I get the 1.4 ? Thanks

I’ve never had a problem laying down the Universal with the 1.3 and TE25 air cap. It puts out enough material that when I tried the 1.4 it seemed excessive and harder to dial in. Not a hint of iso clumping, solvent pop or die back if proper flash times are kept. I’m in Canada and only get to spray the 4100-1 though, I rarely ever reduce it.
