How to Install an Artisan Air Valve on Graco HVLP Edge Gun

A common question we get at Prep to Finish spray clinics is how to set up an HVLP gun like ours. We don’t run a stock set up. We have converted our Graco Edge gun to gravity (or cup over) feed instead of the stock bottom feed cup. Also, we install an artisan air valve on each of our HVLP guns to better control the air flow to the fluid.
