Tom,

Now Mcfeelys’ server is up and I can point you to the link I had in mind.

I assisted a buddy (Jeffery a fellow LJ) in his first efforts at using the PC gravity-fed cup conversion gun using this finish, and was suitably impressed. It is again water-borne.

As for the paint expert at Lowe’s, I believe labeling concerns and Federal Law make it hard for them to advise cutting finishes with the suitable solvent to make the recommendation you sought. I have used the PC gun to shoot outdoor black enamel, thinned about 50% with mineral spirits. Worked like a champ. The gun is actually manufactured by DeVilbis. It comes supplied with (I believe- without looking it up) #2 needle and airhorn, but different sizes are available should you require shooting thicker finishes, epoxies etc.

-- "Bordnerizing" perfectly good lumber for over a decade.
