I need to buy a few texture and or splatter drywall sprayers. HF sells one
for $29.00 and I'm wondering if anyone has tried one? I know HD sells
theirs for 59.00 but they look identical. I know you get what you pay for
specially when it comes to HF. Just wondering how this one measures up?
"You can lead them to LINUX
but you can't make them THINK"
I have lots of Harbor Freight tools, it is not the tool, it is the hands and
arms behind them.
If you have never sprayed before, get some scrap and practice until you get
what you like. Since I am so terrible at finish drywall I do the rough
taping, first two coats, sand then go find a professional. I just do not
have the wrist action to make it look right.
I believe that HD has two different spatter guns. The style
I bought from HD about 2 years ago was the same and
essentially identical to the style they sold for $35-40. In
addition, HD had another gun they sold for about $60 which
was different and appeared to be better. Mine worked fine
for me but the current HF style looks better and closer to
the old higher cost HD spatter gun. The HF gun on sale is
about $20 in the stores.
But why would you want to buy a "few?"
A friend of mine used on of the hf sprayers to do his basement. It
did a good job, and he was satisfied. Be aware, though, that if
you're going to do this you need a lot of air. He has an el-cheapo
compressor, and it didn't take much convincing for him to come get my
20-gallon two stage unit.
