...for spraying lacquers mostly. I know there was a review of these in
a major mag within the last 6 months, but I can't recall which mag.
Which unit would you consider best? I'd like one that is easy to use
inside a cabinet. should it be a non-bleeder?
Follow-up question: where can I get one (new) at a good price?
I have a Turbinaire and I think it is great. I also purchased the small
bottle adapter for small projects or tight spots and find it works well.
However, as I have not used any other HVLP system I cannot comment on how
it compares. As to the bleeder vs non-bleeder, it seems to be another
version of the right vs left tilt discussion. From my research it seems
that those that have used a conventional spray system a lot are more at
home with a non-bleeder as it replicates what they are use to. However, I
find the bleeder OK and find it convenient to give the piece one final
dusting before finishing. And you will learn quite quickly not to keep the
gun pointed at the finished piece once you have applied the finish as this
will accelerate drying in that area. Cheers, JG

Is it a high-end commercial unit ? At that price, are you kidding ?
Does it have all the commercial bells and whistles ? Well, the
turbine does make a sort of whistling noise . . . almost.
Will it compete with the high-end commercial units ? Only if the
contest is limited to how far you can throw them.
OTOH it works as advertised, isn't _too_ noisy, is fairly compact, and
doesn't _cost_ your first-born.
Suits my needs, but I'm no cabinetmaker.
