I need to get a spray gun(s) for stain and finish (urethane) for
"recreational" use (non-commercial,. hobby projects)
Your recomendations on best model and supplier would be appreciated.
I've never had one. I thinking of this now because I inherited a nice
Hitachi compressor and some nailers, and the compressor could be used
to drive the sprayers.
I'm doing some remodelling and those egg crate grille vents are a
terror to hand stain and finish.
HVLP guns will probably use lots and lots and lots of air (High Velocity
Low Pressure). Compressors typically used to drive nailers may do 3 or
4 SCFM; the HVLP gun could suck 11 SCFM or more.
If you're painting lots of small items (as in short bursts of product
application with lots of nice pauses for the compressor to recover) it
may work OK, but for any substantial area you can get real frustrated.
Seems like everybody is hanging out at Lowes.
I have the Porter Cable PSH1, also a HVLP spray gun. It works so good it
makes me look good. Fit and finish of the tool could not be better.
Think I gave 80 bucks for it on Amazon.
