Newbie Spray Question
I want to spray alum wire with a Metco 12 standard gearing with acet. I am spraying a pipe with a 58" OD that is 10ft long. I estimated the weight of required material to be about 30# if it was done perfect so I doubled the expected usage for error. My partner argues that it will be around 150# to complete the job. I used the Metco book as a guide but may be calculating it wrong. Any suggestions on what the total weight would be?
Thank You,
Aaron Boyce

Hi Aaron, how thick is the coating?

Will the standard gearing work with Al wire?

Hi All,

Yes, the standard gearing will work with 1/8" aluminum and the EC aircap. Aluminum runs at near the top speed of the standard gears and near the bottom end of the high speed gears, so you can use either one.
