Joe, I’ve used both and the HVLP does cut down on the overspray, but not totally. With your HVLP, you spray with only about 7lbs of pressure, but high volume. When I’m spraying with my conventional compressor and gun, I usually spray at about 35 lbs pressure, less volume, but the pressure creates a lot more overspray.
Lee is right, I would check out building a small portable spray booth and exhaust out a door or window. Instead of spraying Polyurathane, have you considered lacquer. Dries fast and easy to use.
