More infomercial fare, but inneresting in that this appears to be a *true*
HVLP sprayer.... well, mebbe "true" hvlp sprayer.... lol
Inyway, all told, about $100. You carry the compressor on a shoulder strap.
Looks like very little blowback.
The infomercial was mildly inneresting, and altho the demo's were of course
pre-biased, the seamless painting of rough surfaces is proly truer than they
portray, as they are so determined to muck up *everything*
in their favor.
To wit, they virtually dismessed -- or rather, totally disguised -- the need
for masking, giving the impression you need not mask any more than you would
for brushes/rollers. Not having used hvlp, I'm assuming this is really a
Compare with HF's ditty:
Also, I believe you can use a paint pot (like
) for more
capacity, with hvlp. You would need a sep. supply of compressed air, which
sort of complicates things, but in a sense, should give the best of both
worlds -- more capacity, lighter spray gun, more thickness control.
But christ, the g-d paint pot is as much as the hvlp unit!! wtf???
I imagine the paint pot pressure would have to be pretty low, *and*
The regulator on the HF paint pot does neither particularly well, so be
prepared to substitute it.
The real Q is: is Paintzoom a toy? Proly is. Might work well for a while.
I myself would (and will sooner or later -- too much blow back with my hplv
sprayer, messy) go with the HF unit, esp. since some here posted some time
ago that it does a reasonable job.
Inyway, thought this was inneresting, and additionally inneresting was, in
the 10 min or so I watched, they never described the system as "hvlp".....
heh, mebbe it isn't???? LOL
