I'm looking for classes in spray finishing. Basically I would like to
learn to set up the gun and proper techniques to spray.
Troubleshooting problems would be nice too. The ideal class would
have plenty of hands on lab time... I'm not too concerned with color
matching, surface prep, and such although I realize that might be
forced onto you as the price of admission to the right class.
Various wood schools have occasional classes but they usually are sold
out quickly, are lectures instead of hands on, or very small part of a
larger finishing class.
I looked at the classes of several spray gun manufactorers and they
come closest to what I am looking for. Most of them have a heavy car
painting leaning, but that is to be expected. It would be nice if
they focused on wood, but I guess if you learn to dial in and
recognise proper atomization it doesn't matter if you're spraying
paint or pre-cat.
Has anyone been to a class they really were satisfied with and feel it
might be what I am looking for? A week is about the longest I could
get off work so any that are 5 days or less would be best.
