Hi everyone, well, this is my first blog, at least I think it’s a blog.

I have been making toy boxes for about the last month and Believe it or not, I can’t keep up with the demand. I have made 5 toy boxes and have 3 more to do before Xmas. And my next customer wants it painted. I don’t want to buy 4 or 5 cans of spray paint, which brings me to my Question.

I am looking for a spray gun to buy but don’t know much about spray guns. Of course I want it to do everything, Paint, Stain, and Lacquer. I have found in a magazine (Lee valley & Veritas main catalog Jan 2009) A Critter Air-Powered Spray Gun that uses a standard size Mason gar for a reservoir, that would be really be convenient. BUT DOES IT WORK ????

Does anyone have one of these if so can you tell me how you like it and is it worth it.
Or can anyone tell me of one that works well and at a decent price.

Please help
Thanks tazz

I just bought a P/C PSH1 HVLP spray gun. Let me tell you, right out of the box, and with just slight adjustments, it sprays perfectly! I read somewhere online that P/C’s spray guns are made by Devilbiss. All I know is that I got a great gun for $80.00!! Here is a link.

I’ve alway preferred the Sata HVLP guns but they are quite pricey, about $300 for a small one.
