Inexpensive But Worthy

I purchased a Earlex 2901 spray station primarily by price over the advertisement. Being on a fixed income, I try to get the biggest bang for my buck. On LJ, Earlex suggested the 2901 as a good entry sprayer. It is light as it is mostly plastic except for the guide and spray needle, which appear to be brass. So far I’ve used it to spray water based finishes such as poly, and various kinds/colors of acrylics. I have not had to thin any material. I considered this when I used acryli...

Back in January at the woodworking show in Indianapolis I purchased this Earlex 5500 spray station. LJs very own Eaerlextech was there giving demos, and they had a special package price on the unit, plus a cleaning kit and 1.5mm needle. I’d been thinking about it a long time, so I jumped on it. I also ordered the non-lined spray cup for use with alcohol and oil based finishes. For my first project, I chose to spray shellac. If you are not an experienced sprayer, shellac is a good...

Awesome HVLP system

Awesome HVLP system

With an upcoming kitchen remodel looming, I decided to bite the bullet and get a quality spray finishing system. After much research, I narrowed my options down to one of the Fuji 4-stage systems. I went back and forth between the mini-mite 4 and the Q4 systems. In the end I decided that the nearly $300 premium was more than I wanted to pay for the noise reduction features of the Q4 (plus I wear hearing protection for most of the power tools in my shop anyway). I’m happy with this...

Critter Spray Gun that works for a small shop

Critter Spray Gun that works for a small shop

Spray guns and the choices are many. This is one product that could be of use to a woodworker. Great spray gun for some of my applications. It is inexpensive around $35 and you can use most shop air compressors (Mine is a $100 HD) your spray container is a Mason jar, which can be purchased at the grocery store. http://www.amazon.com/Critter-Spray-Products-22032-Siphon/dp/B00006FRPJ which has all the specs and customer reviews. My uses for this particular model is for latex, shellac and bo...

Fantastic starter HVLP set, but choose your finish wisely

Fantastic starter HVLP set, but choose your finish wisely

When my wife asked me to upcycle a dresser for our daughter, I told her that I needed a new tool to get it done. After doing my research and agonizing if I wanted to get the Earlex Spray Station 5500 as my first HVLP or go for the HF/Rockler HVLP. I eventually settled on this one, figuring I can learn from the experience and go for a 3 or 4 stage after I finally wear it out. I’ve had and used the unit for almost a year now. The HVLP comes with 3 tips, that at best I can figure is ...

OK let me the first to say that I am new here don’t have many posts and I am new to spraying with the HVLP. With that said I had a big piece of furniture that I needed to finish and decided to get my first sprayer. I did some extensive research on what to get and after reading the reviews I was pretty set on the Earlex Spray Station. I ordered it online from Amazon and it came in and I was excited to get started. I also ordered the 1.5mm needle as well. So I open the box and start...

Summit HVLP - Budget Spraying

Summit HVLP - Budget Spraying

10-22-2014 02:13 AM by Pezking7p | 13 comments »

I purchased this HVLP system last year during a Black Friday special from peachtree woodworking for the extremely low price of something like $70. Regular retail appears to be $120, so please keep this in mind as you read my review. The package comes with a single stage 400W turbine, about 8’ of hose, a spray gun with a plastic siphon cup, and a spare needle and a spare air filter. Everything was in great shape out of the box, just needed to clean the grease off the internals. T...
