In reading the manual on my general purpose spray gun, it mentions the issue of condensation potentially causing fisheye problems in your paint, and recommends installing appropriate oil or water remover equipment. Could anyone offer some more details on this subject?

Thanks,
Scott

Yep you need a filter or 2 on them and a water trap or yes it can/will cause you problems. I have both on my compressor but only use it on my paint gun I also have another air line for the other stuff and I also use one line for the paint gun and thats all that hose is ever used for so as to keep it clean, dry and oil free

I bought a small one and screwed it directly to my gun. It's been a while but I think I got it from Harbor Freight.

Those little filters do a good job but only for a short while. If you're painting something big it'll drive you crazy changing them. They're only designed to catch last minute stuff. And not much of that. Plus it gets expensive.

You're going to have to eliminate most of the water at its source and that's back up the line towards the compressor. If your budget won't stand a refigerated air dryer you need to run long lengths of pipe and and a couple of good water traps between the compressor and your rubber air line. Harbor Freight sells a good water separator for about $30.00. It needs to be placed about 25 feet from the compressor though to be effective.

The more pipe the better but 30 feet at a bare minimum according to the paint and body boys. I was able to run the equivalent of 300 feet of copper pipe because of a big AC heat exchanger I lucked onto. With that, the HF separator and a couple of home made jobs my low budget deal works perfect.
