Has anyone used any of the cheap Harbor Freight HVLP sprayers? I see some
listed in the $50-$60 price range and under. I need to paint a new shed
(12X20) and possibly some of my house. I do not want to put much money
into the sprayer as I do not think I will use it for much else. I am looking
for a sprayer that will be quicker and possibly do a better job than the
ones that I have now. I have a Craftsman 1 Qt. sprayer, which I have not
used yet which came with the compressor I bought.
Thanks for any thoughts or experiances in advance.

If you are talking latex I'd suggest renting an airless sprayer. While the
HF and Rockler units may handle common wood stain and finishes well, they
may be a bit underpowered for a latex without extensive thinning.
There is also the 1 QT thing. You'd spend more time filling the cup then you
I agree, wrong tool for the job. I've seen re-conditioned Wagner sprayers
on the web for similar or less money and think some of them have 1 gal
capacity. Haven't checked the rental market and that may well be the best
