Forum Title: Cleaning out the machine
Do you guys clean out your machine everyday? Even if you are using it the next day? I have been just taking out the suction pipe and putting it in a bucket with solvent just over the filter until the next day. Good or bad idea

Oil based paint, never. Latex everyday. I still have not cleaned my oil machines from last year. I only use hopper with very tight lids. Keep the air away from the paint and it will not dry up. You also can pour a little thinner on top if you leave it in for over a week. This is all for OIL based paint. My three primary machines white, yellow, and blue have paint in them all year. My second and third machines get cleaned out in December. THe primary oil get cleaned for repairs.

We only run solvent paints and don’t clean out all year, but when we wrap the season up we flush well with acetone, then mineral spirits, and let it sit in that. It’s slightly oily.
