The compressor you have will power some of the HVLP guns, a lot of the guns will run on 7 CFM but the better guns usually require more CFM. HVLP is a lot easier to use then the old high pressure systems. You can get just a gun and see how you like it and then decide if you want to spend the money for a dedicated turbine setup, or stay with your compressor.

I just got the Earlex 6900 Spray Station and for a novice at spray painting it’s very easy to use. I am using water borne products because I don’t have a booth setup to use oil based or lacquer products. So far I have done WB Poly and Latex paint on some projects and they have come out great.
