so... a while back I asked questions ad nauseam regarding compressors... and I bought one and have used it a lot for various things so thank y'all for that, but have yet to use it to spray lacquer. building now and am fast approaching the time where I will put them to work. I've got a couple of cheap guns to try out, and I understand that an air/water filter near the gun is advisable but am not entirely sure what to get. I recall having them close to the gun is important, and I see these little ones that attach inline, but then I see others that might require mounting somewhere. so q1 is which one? q2 is... I'm not entirely sure of actual size of hose (std) but it occurs to me I might have to buy some fittings to go hose in/out of the filter (they don't come w them? can you speed up the learning curve and advise? thanks in advance.
