    I use my dad's old Richard Yale gun. It was old when I was a kid in the 70s. Don't know if it it predates his Vietnam time or not., But likely. I used it to touch up my 59 El Camino this spring, and have had it since 89 16701178353151686775927520387854.jpg

  2. Nice! That's what prompted me to seek out these old guns. When I shoot my 57 (Pontiac) I want to do it old school. With a US made gun of the era.
  3. I want to flake my 57 (Pontiac). I'm thinking these old guns won't have a problem with it at all. Any tips on tip size? Most of my MBCs have #30 tips.

    BTW: just read your September 2017 comment on the subject. Nice.

    I had a Devilbiss and bought a harbor freight gun for primer . I haven't used the Devilbiss in years . I use a harbor freight gun if it messes up $15 gets a replacement.

  5. HF sent me a credit card couple years ago so I picked up a few of their guns just to use the card. Two normal guns and a detail. Figured I'd used them to paint old toolboxes that I plan on pinstriping. Can't beat the price.

    My favorite is my Binks model #7's. Still using my original gun after 43 years. It's been rebuilt a few times. I have expensive HVLP's, but still prefer the old #7's.

  9. I wouldn't mind having a Binks #7 to try out. Lots of folks swear by them.

    I only have used 36SD for everything, primer, lacquer & enamel color, flake & clear.
    There may be better choices?

    I bought a new Bings #7 shortly before everyone went to HVLP, I think it was the late 80's. Also have a Devilbiss I got from a neighbor when I was 15 back in 1965. I think it is from the 1950's. Painted a lot of cars with both of them. Now I use an Iwata.

  12. Some of mine. The one on the right was well used when I got it 40 years ago.....

    Here are 2 that my grandfather made in the 1950s - primer and paint. I used the primer gun often to shoot red-oxide lacquer primer on my cars as a teenager - in the driveway of course where only the best work is done ;) My dad used them to paint several of his cars in 1960s/70s .. Still some remnants of the blue he painted the Dodge Dart and the green from his custom 57 Cushman Eagle Chopper IMG_1050.jpg

    I'd be interested in the JGA 502s.
  16. All I've got is a Binks 62, and clone of a Devilbliss.

    Saw this thread so I dug out my old Sharpe #75. Bought this in the late 70's and I haven't painted a car in 40 years. I have a couple projects that are going to eventually need paint so I might just fire it up again
