Why buy it when you can make it! #16: Dresser Rehab [Part 4] - Almost finished...well finished but some assembly required

10-12-2014 08:22 PM by paxorion | 1 comment »

After an unexpectedly long detour detour to get my ducks in a row for my daughter's birthday party, I finally got to spraying on the paint for the dresser rehab. This was no easy feat, as I had to tackle two major roadblocks. I needed to get over my fear of trying out a HVLP. Since I was using a Harbor Freight HVLP, I wasn’t sure how well it would work. I had to get my wife to mix the paint color she wants out of the 3 cans of General Finishes milk paint we bought a while back. ...

Finishing, oh finishing, how I loathe thee...

04-07-2013 02:08 AM by Matt Przybylski | 1 comment »

As if I didn’t hate sanding enough, I’m starting to really loathe finishing. I’m making three baby gates for my little girl and there is a lot of spindles involved. Needless to say I am having a nightmare with the finishing process. I first tried spraying them but was getting too many runs as I don’t think my gun was dialed in properly and overspray everywhere because the spindles are pretty thin. I then sanded most of that down to lose the runs and primed it (I didn...

My Fuji Mini-Mite 4 Experience #2: Another Update and Bigger Plastic Jar Tutorial

03-28-2013 04:28 PM by NiteWalker | 4 comments »

So when I last posted, I was having trouble with getting the #3 and #4 needles to fit without quite a bit of adjustment to the packing nut on the gun. Since then I’ve tried the following: new #3 needle sets from amazon and fuji, a new #4 set and a new xpc spray gun from fuji. I’m sad to say that nothing worked and the issue persists. Realistically, it probably won’t be a real world issue as everything I spray works perfectly with the #3 needle. But I just feel there should b...

My Fuji Mini-Mite 4 Experience #1: Initial Impressions and Follow-Up

03-17-2013 05:10 PM by NiteWalker | 0 comments »

Since I’ve been documenting everything about my experience with the Fuji Mini-Mite 4 I decided to collect all the info in a blog series. So here we go! Backstory (skip past this if you just want to read my impressions of the fuji):For about a year I used a Qualspray QS-125WB from homestead finishing with my makita twin stack compressor. I also opted for the bigger 20 oz cup since it was to be my main spray setup. In that year I used the gun a lot, and it worked great, but the comp...

Waterborne Finishes & HVLP

08-26-2011 04:25 PM by thewoodwhisperer | 7 comments »

Right Click to DownloadRight Click to Download in HDSubscription Options Technically, this is really Part 4 of our Wall-Hanging Tool Chest build, but because I focused so strongly on waterborne finishes and HVLP (High Volume Low Pressure spraying), it received its own stand-alone title. When I made this project in the Guild, I asked our members what type of finish they would like to see me use. The votes came in and the majority of folks wanted to see a waterborne finish applied via HV...

Shop Improvements #1: RapidAir - Adding compressed air lines to my shop for HVLP spraying

05-09-2011 09:51 PM by Loogie | 2 comments »

For a while I’ve been pondering upgrading my HVLP spray setup. After exploring the turbine vs. conversion gun issue I decided to go with a conversion gun setup. The next step was deciding on a compressor. Initially I was looking at 20 gallon sized portable compressors and trying to find one that would supply enough air to spray with any gun that I wanted to spray with. That was hard to find. I was stuck on portable because I really didn’t have room in my shop for a big stationary ...

A case for spraying finishes #1: Spraying Finishes, Lacquer and Gravity Feed HVLP

12-13-2010 10:24 AM by pintodeluxe | 2 comments » You will use much less material because the transfer efficiency is higher. 2. Less noxious overspray.3. Better finish with no orange peel. Actually it is glass smooth, and seems almost automatic to get perfect results. 4. If you accidentally run the cup out of finish, it just quietly stops spraying. Compare this to the sputtering mess created by a siphon gun. 5. Two coats...
