I recently bought the Wagner Paint Ready HVLP (the one HD sells for $119) for spraying clear water based acrylic. When I first tried it, it wouldn’t shut off, which is inimical to economical use of material. Field stripped it, and found the plastic valve (male part) wasn’t seating properly into the femaie orifice, which only required some wiggling to correct. But I’m not very happy having those critical parts out of plastic instead of metal. Fortunately, I was able to adapt the hose to my old sprayer (the blower switch had died, and it would have been a bitch to replace it). Works fine, now. I do like the 2 speed blower, as full blast throws out too much material for fine finishing.
