I'd like to add spray finish to my skill set, so I guess I need a spray gun. There are three at an online auction -- items 10, 11 and 12 at this link:
Any thoughts about the quality/price on these?
Certainly the devilbiss is the best gun, hands down over the other 2.
I might suggest that you consider hvlp, I have air guns, like these,
binks and devilbiss. But I started buying the conversion hvlp..
