Filter Specs for Filtering Lacquer
From contributor Y:
Gerson premium clear-coat filters are 150 mesh. Their superfine are 200, but they are best for thin liquids 20-25 zahn # 2 or ford four cup viscosity's at most. 150 is better for heavier cv’s but still slower than medium mesh 120. Are you going to strain after thinning or before?
From contributor R:
I bought a box of nylon stockings from a drug store. I cut off a piece a few square inches, fold it over a few times and zip-tie them on the intake tube of your cup gun or your pressure pot. If after you have initially strained your material be it thinned or not , this extra protection will capture any leftover particles before they have a chance to contaminate the surface.

Buy a box of medium mesh paint filters. Why waste time reinventing the wheel?
