air compressor flow on old Binks lo boy compressor

Gentlemen, I have an old Binks lo boy compressor with a 1 1/2 hp electric motor. I'm interested in finding the CFM it produces at 60lbs. What size spray gun can I use to spray without running out of air. Thanks, woody

Depends on what it is, exactly, but rule of thumb says probably at least 4CFM, maybe 6 or more at that pressure. You'd probably want to leave it at 120PSI or whatever it's set to, and use a regulator to drop the pressure to the gun.
