that looks slick ryan, so this gun is light? whats the difference between the regular tekna?

BTW where did the carpet go?


The gun is lighter because it has less parts as well. The air piston has been integrated into the fluid needle much like an Iwata LPH 400.

For the price difference I'd stick with the regular Tekna.

Nice work Ryan.

I think they have 3 air caps as well available. HVLP Compliant and something else.

Hey what's your setup on the gun? Like fluid level, pattern, air pressure. I got orange peel with mine, it was my first time using it, for spraying a car at school. I wanna try and get a glass like finish.

why does every one think they can buy a gun and get a glass finish with no orange peel in it. :wak some OP in inevitable. sorry and for a beginner to think there is an issue with the gun. It takes years to become good enough to get a great finish off the gun

What were your impressions of the TE20 compared to the TE10 if i may ask? Did you try both for clear, or one for base and the other for clear? I've been using my 1.3/HV30 more than my compliant cap and (never thought i'd say this) i think it handles solvent based silvers, golds and tri-coat white better than my Iwata LVX, and i can make clear look as good with it as i can my W400, although the Iwata is awesome with a 1.2, i couldn't get the results i wanted from a 1.2 in the ProLite.
Very nice looking finish BTW, probably made the rest of the car look pathetic. :cheers

I like both caps, but for different things. I spray water and the TE10 works great on drier days. I have not used it with solvent. Both seem to work good for Sikkens Autowave

For clear the TE10 works great with air-dry clears or MS clears but for a HS clear the TE20 works better. I have not got a chance to try the HV30 though or a 1.2 in the gun. The Pro-lite seems to have a bit softer feel than the Tekna.

For Spies clears I always liked my Sata RP3000 with a 1.2.

At my school we shoot PPG Shopline, which is probably low class but that's what we can basically afford with a school district that is suffering economically.
