I needed a touch up gun, so I checked the web, local dealers, etc...
and examined the Porter Cable, DeVillbiss, and other brands of small
guns. Then I found the Critter while searching the 'wreck archives.
Due to it's relative ease of cleaning and use of easily available
mason jars, I decided to give it a shot. It's a very simple,
inexpensive, overgrown external mix airbrush.
I bought it today, and used it to lay down some Seal Coat on some
parts. The parts range in size that might be in a typical end table
or night stand. The Critter had no problem laying down wet coats of
full strength Seal Coat at 40 PSI. I'd say about 20% SLX would make
This thing is really terrific! I was able to keep the sealer in a
jar, some SLX in another jar for cleaning, and quickly and easily whip
the thing out for use. I can't wait to try it with lacquer and dye
I wish I bought this thing a long time ago. I won't be painting any
entertainment centers with it, but it sure makes small to medium spray
jobs go quickly.
