I am beginning work on painting the interior of a 1800 sq ft home. I
was contemplating purchasing a paint sprayer and was looking at Home
Depot at the Magnum line of products.
Could anyone provide feednback on the Magnum line? Graco Magnum DX,
XR5, and the XR7 ?
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
I bought a Campbell-Hausfeild from the Depot 10 years ago. Best $300 I ever
spent. I asked when I had the thing rebuilt last year, $120, if I could add
hose to it. Emphatically NO. So I am stuck with 25'.
Which ever one you pick plan on practicing some before you really get ready
to do the inside. Tips and paints are different. I just painted all of my
block walls ~500' in a morning some of them are 7 feet high.
I added one gallon of water to each fiver. Makes it easier on the block,
covers much better. The tips, paint and the pressure you use determine the
over spray. Cover everything WELL. It goes every where.
Do not have a clue about the Magnums. All of the painters I know use Gracos,
Good luck and remember cleaning it is next to godliness. When finished,
spray some wd40 into the pick up port, the big one for the paint. Bump on
and off while applying. When you get ready to paint again run fresh water
through it for about 3 gallons and start your painting.
