I ran across a 60gal 6hp Campbell Hausfeld compressor model VT619501
cast iron , paid 190.00. SCFM 12@40 10@90 . Its in great shape, decals
are all there with no signs of age. Guy wanted 225.00 but dropped down
to 190.00. I think I got a fair deal. Or hope I did.
Anyhow, I want to pick up some spray equipment. I have done the usual
searches, but still feel like I'm trying to explain what makes a women
tick to my son.
I need a good gun or kit that will allow me to paint and finnish. I
don't want to spend over 200.00. Something that I can grow with for a
few years as I start to gain some knowledge and experience. I'm trying
to avoid too much gee I wish I would of bought ***** instead.
Thanks for your help.
(I'm looking for a deal on an 8in jointer)
Go to www.gleempaint.com and check out the Wagner conversion gun. I just
bought one from them. I haven't used it yet, but it really looks like a
great gun, especially for the money (~$125.00). They have alot of info
on it. You can also check Amazon for reviews. I checked everywhere and
Gleempaint has the best price.
look at the devilbiss brand guns.And look for the HVLP conversion guns,
though with your compressor you can use almost any gun. Get the best that
you can ,it can really make a difference in the final finish and type of
things and materials you can spray.
I'll Second that. DeVilbiss was running a two pack for something like $109
recently - don't know if it's still on or not. Not their best guns by any
stretch, but plenty good enough for what you'll likely do with them.
Ok - I found it... the URL is (watch the word wrap)
Plenty enough gun for woodworking. And... the price is down to $99. You'll
love the touch up gun.
www.homesteadfinishing.com has a variety of guns and recently
announced a special on an Asturo outfit if memory serves. There is a
forum dedicated to spray finishing that might be beneficial reading.
Jeff also carries a variety of finishes.

Placed an order and Jeff answered the phone and I had the chance to
ask him "Jeff, when do you find time to sleep?" and got a chuckle as
an answer. His site often posts his teaching schedule and he and
Susan apparently run the finishing store without other help. I posted
a problem I was having with shellac pulling away from an inside corner
several years ago and Jeff responded that I was experiencing "fat
edge" caused by surface tension as the shellac dried. I almost
recognized the name then and certainly due now. He finally got a
couple of other experts to function as forum moderators and he still
responds frequently as well. I find the SEARCH function is a very

nah, not a troll.
copper's fine for compressed air. unless your friend is doing
something with unusually high pressure air, plain old rigid copper
with soldered joints is plenty strong.
I don't have numbers for ya, but ISTR that the margin is plenty.
Man, am I stupid,
I apparently had a brain fart and for some reason thought he said PVC.
Yes, copper is quite fine.
Don't forget to leave a low spot with a water drain.
Just ignore me, I've had a bad week. :-|
I'm going back to hide in the closet now...
As an aside, I was shocked recently over the price of copper wire. Was
adding a 30 amp/240 circuit to my turnery and just about fell over when
I reached for the 250 foot spool of 10 gage at $90. Instead* bought 2 -
100 foot rolls of 20 gage...
*Actually went with the 10 gage by the foot and forfeited the notion of
having extra on hand for when I replace some of the outlets in my garage.
Yea, Barry, BTDT - a five gram weight was hard to come by growing up.
I used to be able to prattle off the exact weights of every piece of
coinage. Now I have trouble remembering who the dead guys are...
Yeah, but we're cleaner for it. Those mines are dirty, dangerous places
that pollute. Better to have them "over there" . That is, until they
realize they have us over a barrel (oil analogy intended) because we haven't
the capability to produce it ourselves.
