or with my particular machine but there were some issues and then there were some issues we had with customer service and they have asked me a lot of questions over the last week or that we've been applying

powder

paint and showing videos about what we think about the

I wanted to do. I'm sure I got all of that and tried all of that before I go ahead and make a video so now it's time to go ahead and make this video and go through it so let's go ahead and jump into it when we go ahead and buy for first time. the hot coke

1000

pcs we went ahead and just bought the regular regular kit which comes with the five pound fluidizing hopper as well as the machine and a gun we had some issues and had read all the reviews and a lot of people had said ok , that's what it's supposed to do. but you're not supposed to rack up a charge on yourself and that's what was happening so I knew something was right but also something was wrong so I contacted Eastwood which we had with tech support.

It was that tech support didn't know how to name this particular computer's tech support, which was very frustrating and since it just came out, you'd think his tech support would know something, so there was a problem there. . what they did is they sent a new machine and i tried the new machine and the old machine. I have the old machine working by the time the new one came out, but it had done a few different things, so for one thing I had it plugged in and set up the machine just the way it was supposed to be done.

One of the things is right here, where that green wire is connected to, is a common ground, so that means your clip that goes here on the piece that you have wired up. which at the bottom then the You have to connect your ground to the back it should work too shouldn't have any problems Eastwood went ahead and tested it before turning the machine off in my case there were a couple of things one when i unhooked this wire and it i wired straight to ground and then i took the green wire here or the green wire and wired it straight to ground then i was able to

powder

coat it and the machine was running great they shipped the new machine because the new one was on the way when i got it i found out when i got the new machine i was looking at the gun and there was a difference between the old gun the first one they sent out and the second one i noticed there was some insulation there was like an insulation spike ok so here is the first spike and you can see on the first prong that the cord is extremely long okay and then notice the big gray here on your plastic the prongs on the other gun on the second gun that you got we keep going i can see the wire is much shorter and it has some kind of

coating

it may be the same plastic thing but it has some kind of

coating

and it's a different color i don't know if that means anything plus it's got that tip Black, so I told Eastwood.
I said hey you know I was able to get the first one to work and they said ok well the second one is already on the way you know do some testing so I told them how I could. go ahead and make the first one work when i got the second gun and i was looking at the difference between the first gun and the second gun and i noticed in the tip i let them know well what they did was they sent a third gun right the gun so that i can go ahead and compare that third gun to the first and second gun now the third gun was exactly like the second gun so what makes me think is there just a bad clue or a bad gun or even a bad machine because I have connected this machine the same way they say in the book they have had no problem I connected it the same way I have this connected no problem now I prefer the way I connected it the first time because for some reason i feel like we get a better transfer when using this is the clip that goes directly to the ground instead of the back of the machine.
I just missed, we got a better transfer. we're putting in a thicker ground wire so our ground is here okay and we spray here so it's not too far eight feet maybe ten feet so what we've done and we're going to bring a thicker wire this is the ground wire right here we just connect it directly to that and we have the machine here and then we have a ground this grounds the booth and this grounds the big fan that we have which is actually venting and sucking the dust through our filter so we're going to bring in some more wiring this will all be running this cabinet is going to be moved to the side table there will probably be a different cart that's going to sit here but we'll probably keep it as short as possible if we stay in this building which is going to be a whole different video because we want to grow and expand so with some advice from Mark Over at Eastwood who is part of R&D cua When we powder coated the wheels we started with two hit any of the hard edges and then went ahead and bumped it up to about a four three and a half to four 35,000 to 40,000 kilovolts and we were able to powder coat the wheels very well when we do other things for example these four racks we made were done on a 2 kV 3 kV but this machine is so worth it now because of some of the hardship we went through Eastwood went ahead and sent us a 2 pound hopper for us to we could go ahead and try it out and i love the 2lb hopper not only is it perfect for doing wheels its perfect for cabbage or changes where the 5lbs are nice but even doing bigger wheels i actually prefer the way it 2 pound hopper works.
I don't know if it's because I'm having some trouble marking the runny eyes that are on the 5lb hopper. as well as the gun and i have a little problem there. I'm not sure if that's what it is, but the 2 pound hopper is fluidizing so you just put air from the gun in there and it works absolutely perfect. very easy to adjust another tip the max air psi on this system is 50psi what i have noticed is i dont run anything over 40 and when i am using the two pound hopper we use around 25 to 30psi very easy to control a through the air knob here but there's just no reason to send 50 psi here when we tried to send 50 psi it was too much air even though the max is 50 we didn't send 50 psi through it so that's just another piece of advice we found out doing a lot of testing with these machines now a lot of people have asked if it's worth the purchase it's very worth the purchase if you have a problem with anything one
