Graco makes Great Spray Units

Graco makes Great Spray Units

10-02-2011 10:03 PM by hjt | 5 comments »

While this may not exactly be a tool Lumber Jocks might use on a daily basis, I thought it deserved a glowing review. The Graco Sprayer is a great unit to spray paint or stains. Here I erected my “lean-too” and hung our new interior doors to paint. In the past when painting doors, I would lay them down across saw horses. However (and maybe it’s just me) I always get a mark on the door from where they laid on the horses. I’d let them dry for a day before turning and still get marks....

Wood River HVLP Gravity Feed Spray Gun

Wood River HVLP Gravity Feed Spray Gun

07-24-2011 10:00 PM by pintodeluxe | 3 comments »

This is a great gun. If you have never tried a gravity feed HVLP you are in for a treat. You might actually enjoy finishing your projects! Exact same gun as the Porter Cable PSH1, except no air regulator. Just use the regulator on your compressor. Beautiful finish with shellac or lacquer. I even spray stain with it on large jobs. This was $25 on sale, but I think regular price is only $35. It comes with a 1.4 mm tip which is good for lacquer and shellac. They sell an inexpensive 2 mm...

Porter Cable PSH1 Excells at spraying Lacquer

Porter Cable PSH1 Excells at spraying Lacquer

Have you ever been frustruated spraying lacquer? The PSH1 comes with a 1.5mm tip that will spray lacquer beautifully. I thin mine 20% with lacquer thinner, and spray with 35 psi at the gun. The gun comes with it’s own requlator to it is easy to adjust. I like to use a spot light to really see what the finish looks like when it goes down. With this gun it always looks great – no sputtering or inconsistent patterns – just a smooth even finish that looks like it was layed ...

Big Step Up in HVLP

Big Step Up in HVLP

11-02-2010 10:47 PM by Chilly | 1 comment »

I was, up to this point using a Lemmer A-710S bleeder that came with the T-55Q Two-Stage turbine. It did a great job with most basic finishing and I never really had noticed any need to improve the equipment. The problems that did exist where generally in terms of cleaning, because it was a standard bottom-feeding type of gun with a 1 quart capacity which was a too big for most jobs. The realization came that a more mobile, gravity fed gun would be preferable as well a search for one tha...

Great Starting Sprayer

Great Starting Sprayer

08-11-2010 02:35 AM by shopmania | 24 comments »

I had been looking for a sprayer for my latest project, a blanket chest made with quarter saw white oak. I really wanted the finish to look good. I read a lot of good/great reviews on the Rockler sprayer. Then I found one at the new Harbor Freight in my town for about $50 less. I did a lot of research on the net, and found a review on another site that said the Rockler and Harbor Freight were the same machine. In looking at the pictures, they certainly look identical. I’ve heard/r...

Great new spray gun

Great new spray gun

03-18-2010 06:20 AM by sawblade1 | 10 comments »

Last week I received my new spray gun from woodcraft and was very pleased with the quality out of the box it had a good weight to it but not to heavy, it came with a cleaning kit, extra filters, and all accessories for adjusting and removing nozzles and tips from the gun. But where this gun excelled at was at spraying after testing with water I decided to try spraying a water based clear cote to my surprise no cloud of over spray like you get with other HVLP guns and very little and do I ...

Great budget way to get into spraying finishes...

Great budget way to get into spraying finishes...

01-11-2010 07:24 PM by mckenziedrums | 25 comments »

I live or die by my sprayed finishes. In fact, I often joke that I learned woodworking backwards… Long before I even knew what a rabbet cut was I could tell you how to spray a mirror smooth finish. These days I see more and more folks looking into HVLP spraying systems but worried about spending the cash. This little gun goes on sale from time to time and can be had for $29-49 depending on what the price is that week at Harborfreight. I’ve had this in my arsenal for 2 years now...

Video> Finally I am getting to do some spray painting I spent hours watching videos and worrying about lord knows what… So armed with 3 spray guns my mask on my face and dressed up like a bio-tech sci-fi movie character I was ready to lay my first covering and I have to say I was as nervous as a school girl (What ever that means) The first gun I tried was the touch up gun with the 1.0 mm tip right out of the box which is really to small for the paint which was latex and required a 1.5mm ti...

DeVilbiss MGQ-500

DeVilbiss MGQ-500

01-30-2009 07:23 AM by Omegacool | 4 comments »

Air Gun: DeVilbiss Part of a good finish into the wood or the application of automotive paint, much depends on the gun used, among other factors.Speaking of brands, DeVilbiss, is for me the best brand of air guns in Mexico. But talk of quality is also talk about cost, and the products of this brand is expensive in comparison with the other brands mentioned. DeVilbiss MGQ-500 Currently this model is the most sold in Mexico, it can get at Homedepot or a Wal-Mart. For continuous esca...
