the water gun

#1
First, thanks to Barry, for answering my text earlier today regarding condensation/water vapor in the spray stream - can't beat that for customer service - he warned me of the many 'dangers' of not controlling the water in the line. I'm not a pro, but have painted before, fairly successfully.....but lately my compressor has been pumping more water than usual. All I have is a separator near the tank and then I use the replaceable inline desiccants. Today, I ran out of the 'better' desiccants, so ran down to HF and picked up some of theirs - not a good idea, as they almost completely block the flow. I tried doing without them, and the small piece I sprayed immediately showed the results (little divots/fish eyes here and there), so of course I stopped. I have ordered the Motorguard 'toilet paper' filter as some of you have recommended, and will use it in combo with their inline desiccants. Is that a good plan? I'm not looking for absolute perfection - I can cut and buff and make things look very nice :)

Shine I read a lot of reports about leaks soon after purchase recently. So you have no issues with them? I was about to order a schultz that was $1000 with the front end filter and regulator.......

I had to replace the auto drain on mine but otherwise it has been trouble free for over 3 years.

I looked into the HF dryer a couple months ago. They're no longer honoring coupons for it. For as many good reviews, there were quite a few bad reviews that have had issues after a while. So, I was hesitant to buy one. Don't know if they are stupid issues, or legit.

Does a refrigerated dryer discharge air at ambient temperature, or chilled? If chilled, does it affect spraying paint? I'm currently chilling through a copper coil in an ice water bucket, then an aluminum expansion tank, then Motorgaurd filter. So far, I have only sprayed a gallon of epoxy and lots of cabinet laquer with no problems. But, I've always wondered if the discharge air temp should be warmer.
