Minion's webber best practices???

775 3
I just got my MW-1 and tried it for about 3 mins, then realized I should seek some advice on how to use it best. I shot mostly globs and splatters.

What PSI do you use? I have a big 240 volt compressor, plenty of air power if I need it.

Do I need to adjust the nozzle at all? It seemed that the airstream (about 40psi) was just making a big blob at the top of the gun tip, and no glue was really falling into the stream unless I really squeezed a bunch out. Then it just blew blobs.

I bought Minions UV reactive sticks. The gun had had about 10 mins to heat up, although without a glue stick fed in. Maybe the glue coming out wasn't hot enough?

I want to do some light indoor webbing, how best to shoot webs close up? Do I turn down the pressure for closer work?

I just don't want to blow through $35 worth of glue figuring this out. I looked at Corey's site but didn't see much in the way of instructions for use...
