Thanks Wicked. 1.4 a good size if I had to choose just one size to start with? I'll probably be spraying a lot of HOK clear.
Anyone have experience for spraying flakes? How big does your nozzle have to be in relation to flake size?
They have a new finex out. I was thinking about getting the 1.5 setup cuz you can spray primers too. You can spray a primer through a 1.2 also you just have to reduce it more right? Is there any cons of reducing a primer so that it will spray through a 1.2? There's no good articles out there about nozzle size of spray guns.

If you plan to spray flake I highly recommend investing in a Flake Buster. Don't get me wrong, you can spray flake with a conventional spray gun, but being new to all of this, you will get much better results from a gun designed for the purpose. Nozzle size will depend on the flake size.
Didn't know they brought the Finex back... hopefully the quality is the same. Yes, you can spray reduced primer through a 1.2 or a 1.5 if you're spraying it as a surfacer. If you want to spary primer as a filler, you'll need a larger nozzle. I prefer a 1.8 for this purpose. Depending on your budget, I also recommend a dedicated primer gun in your arsenal.
