I did some poking around on the web and in the newsgroup archives already.
Seems there is a preference for Graco over Wagner in the paint sprayer
arena. It looks like Wagner sells their homeowner/light duty units at
Lowe's under the name Spraytech, while Graco does the same under the name
Graco at HomeDepot. All I (think that I) need is a very light duty machine
like the Magnum DX or Spraytech 1420.
We just had an 1100 sq ft home floor redone in white oak, I replaced all the
doors, half the windows, and the kitchen cabinets. I need to paint the
casings for the windows/doors, paint the doors, and the new baseboards. I
did the first three window casings in the kitchen "by hand" so I wouldn't
have to do them after the cabinets and countertop were in. It was time
consuming, and I wasn't thrilled with the results.
For the remaining doors/casings/baseboards, what I am thinking of doing is
spraying the stock outdoors and then installing it and then filling and
touching up the nail holes. I plan on using a semi-gloss white latex on all
trim. I have never used a paint sprayer before. I rolled the paint on the
interior walls - I don't want to deal with all the masking inside.
So, one broad question - does this sound like a good plan? Any advice? And
one specific question - will either the DX or 1420 suffice for the job? Is
there are clear preference of one over the other?
