Question Nozzle size for spraying Weldwood contact adhesive?

Just bought a HF gravity fed HVLP gun to spray Weldwood contact adhesive to carpet boxes and trim etc. The gun came with a 1.4 nozzle. I know the Weldwood if fairly thick. Is the 1.4 gonna be big enough or should I look into getting a larger one? They offer larger sizes of 1.7 and 2.0 through customer service which I would have to order and have shipped to me.

most guys use a siphon feed spray gun with a large nozzle, normally like a 4+ if i remember correctly. typically the $30ish gun from Harbor Freight is the best choice.

So is the gravity not the right tool? I looked at HF.com and the siphon fed guns don't have any larger tip than like 1.8mm.

Heavy Duty Air Paint Spray Gun

I've been using that one for years and years. The gravity ones sometimes put out too much glue when you need to be delicate. Like with thin faux suede.

They work great.

how well does the 1.8 work with contact adhesive?? that would probably be more available than like a large bore latex nozzle.

I had one of those sprayers and forgot to clean it out after spraying some material. cheap and effective and throw away if it breaks vs paying $$$ for a name brand sprayer..

About the faux suede, how easy is it to work with that material? Got a few places where I would like to use it in (headliner, doors, pillars, rear deck)

the hardest part with this particular suede (street suede from Keyston Bros), is getting the glue on without it bleeding. I remove the backing and it becomes very stretchable. That's why I make sure the gun is clean, and more importantly, the glue is fresh, and has not gummed up one bit.

Once the glue is on, you have lots of time to work the suede where you need it to go.

There's many different types of suede, so, depending on all what you are doing, you probably don't even have to worry about removing the backing or the glue bleeding through at all.
