Hey, that may not be the best pick-up line but those nylons can save you time and money on paint strainers. It may also help your sweetheart feel a little better when she glances down at another run in her nylons and says to herself “it’s for a worthy cause.”
Rather than throwing away another pair of nylons, take a pair
of scissors and cut the legging portion off. Next, tie a knot
at the knee (half way point) and cut again just below the knot.
This way you create two stainer bags with one leg or 4 with
both legs. Even though runs may look attrocious they strain
paints, varnishes and other materials exceptionally well and
because they stretch so well they rarely slide off the bucket
when your pouring material through them. (As with any strainer,
always remember to get the strainer wet before use. This keeps
material from drying too quickly in the mesh, especially on
hot days.) — Dan J. Crockett, Torrance, Calif.
While spraying, do you often find yourself getting frustrated because you have to fight the airless line? Would you like to get that extra one or two foot reach with the hose without having to fight it’s twisted tendencies and the risk of putting kinks in the hose? Well, don’t let those times get the best of you any more. Before your next job purchase 3 swivel couplings, one for the airless line connection at your pump and two for the junction between your 50’ sections of hose. Most airless guns already have a swivel coupling attached. These swivel couplings keep those rigid lines free of unneccessary stresses which can weaken them and increase your chances of rupturing a line during operation. These swivel couplings can be purchased from any authorized Graco dealer.
