    The thing about tip dry is it can be elusive. You may get none today and itll clog up every 5 seconds tomorrow... or it might be that one bottle of paint. What pressure you spray at can affect it as well. For a beginner it can be frustrating! But the reality is its like turning the key to start your car- after a while you just automatically start wiping or pinching to keep it at bay.

    Also with tip dry you can usually hear the sound of the air change as your spraying, as well as the spray pattern going weird. I usually spray some ab cleaner/thinners/acetone through when ive finished cleaning and then a final flush of clean water to remove any of the solvent. I spray into my cleaning pot so as not to spray solvent into the air.

    I just stumbled onto this video and it seems to discuss a lot of what we've talked about here.

    Both of the videos posted were really really informative, considering I had never held one until yesterday I now feel like a pro keeping it clean lol
