Spray tips
 
I am looking at buying a Graco LTS 15 from lowes. I am then going to paint my whole basement new construction in 3 colors.

1) White for the skip trow(sp) ceiling. What spray nozzle should i use?

2) Tan for main area and bathroom. What spray nozzle should I use?

3) Brown for 2 bedrooms. What spray nozzle should I use?


At some other point i plan to stain my deck. What spray nozzle should I use?


Should I thin my paint at all?

I really apprecaite all of your answers.

Sincerely,
Joe

You might want to buy the magnum X5 , a better price on a reconditioned unit with the same 1 year warranty.

Using an airless no need to thin the paint.
For the stain a fine finish nozzle
The color has no bearing on the tip size.
