Default Burned some more parts last week.

I had set up with the hi-speed tips but ran into some problems
(of my own making) so had to switch back to regular tips
at 60 psi.

12 in/min worked good, as well as 5/16 tip clearance.

The brown foam ?
I put some RV antifreeze in the tank (was on sale at Wallymart $3 a gallon)
for the winter, and to keep the evaporation down.

Got in floor heat running this winter so no need for it, and it
doesn't do much about evaporation.
So plan is to drain it out and flush clean this spring.

It was on sale for $3 a gallon, the green stuff (prestone) was at least $8.
