Received my new MM4 and was super impressed with the packaging and instructions. Put it together and quickly became familiar with the set up. By all means, use the 6’ whip! Makes a huge difference. ALso, I loved the accessory cleaning kit. Really helped. I also got the small containers to use and seal various materials….this will be so much nicer than the cup! Wishing there are more videos on spraying latex/alkyd paint for painting cabinets. It would help to know more about se...

So, my partner and I have a big cabinet job which has quite a bit of priming and painting to do. In order for us to both be able to work, I picked up the Earlex spray station HV5500 last week from Rockler on sale ($299 with the extra 1.5mm tip and a $50 gift card). I finally broke it out today and put 4-5 hours of fairly continuous work in spraying Zinsser BIN primer. I’m no expert, but I’ve been spraying lacquer, poly, etc top coats from a HF gun for a couple of years with p...

Deciding on the Fuji Mini-Mite 4 with T75G gun

Deciding on the Fuji Mini-Mite 4 with T75G gun

I’d like to give a quick review on my hunt for an HVLP system and my Fuji Spray Mini-Mite 4 experience.First off I just want to say that I had no previous experience what so ever spraying post-catalyzed lacquer (or much of anything for that matter). I read every HVLP review I could find and watched every video on Youtube before I decided on the Mini-Mite 4. I don’t remember what review I read (or watched) but I remember the comment that the more powerful turbines are more forgivi...

Fuji Mini Mite 4 Platinum.

Fuji Mini Mite 4 Platinum.

I needed to clear coat some pretty large plywood items and used it is as an excuse to buy a spray gun. Initially I bought 2 stage unit but after thinking about it more I though that I might run into situation where it will not be enough. Fortunately retailer had no problem upgrading the unit ( I even did not unpack it). When I opened Mini Mite 4 I found a pleasant surprise . Even though I purchased the regular Mini Mite 4 the one in the box was a newer Platinum series. The difference is that ...

Inexpensive But Worthy

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...

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 ...
