Well this is my latest aquisition a Turbinaire Hvlp Paint Sprayer System Model 1337.
I bought this used…

It’s the same as the 1537 Model they sell now,
1537 Model Link
with all the same features just an older model.

3 Stage Turbine
7.2” Fan Size
Output 130 CFM
Variable Speed
25 Ft. of Hose
Accuspray HVLP Bleeder Spray Gun

I’ve never used one of these systems before but it was such a good deal I had to have it..:)

Does anyone else have any experience with these??

Great acquisition and have fun spraying.

I have an Accuspray with the same spec’s and I have 2 guns, one for waterbase and one for solvents.

I recommend playing with the different types of material to see what thickness works for each gun.
Also it is better to start your spray before the piece and finish it after the piece without fanning
the material, especially waterbase. It’s best to keep it at one distance through out the spray if possible.

Take your time to learn and enjoy spraying.

I just got a call from Turbinaire…. They we’re amazed at how good the machine looked for a Vintage Unit..LOL
I painted it.. and not the same orange as the original because I couldn’t find it..
Anyhow it is an older unit but it works 100%. I went and bought new brushes for the motor thinking it MUST need them but when I took it apart the one’s that we’re in it we’re in excellent shape…

Have your say...
