        The jamming gun means that he needs a new gun kit or he is not cleaning it properly-they can get gunked up and dont return into the seat properly so you get a squirt of paint at the end of each spray.
        like i said -a cowboy can do alot of damage with a spray gun,and for a starter it is a steep learning curve.
        The best way to learn is to find a good painter who sprays and learn from him if you can.T.hat way you can learn for next time,and ofcourse the potential hire cost of the spray unit is saved so that can in effect be deducted from his rate.
        Im semi retired but still spray a bit,but Im in the Auckland area and it sounds like your in S Island?
        Still,if you give it a go im around with advice in terms of more specifics.

          Sorry ,I just realized the starter of the post is from the Auckland area-thought it was Muppet.
          If your in my area and want to give it a go yourself I am contactable in terms of advice or if you get in a jam and im not tied up on something else. Cheers
