Topic tags/keywords: question trick tip resource

I have a problem hoping i can get some feedback. Every project I have ever done has always been small projects, so when it came time to apply the finish I would either brush it on or hand rub the stains into the project,
But now I have a new project that i am going to undertake, there is no way I am going to brush on the stain, or the shellac, can any one tell me a good electric air compressor for a newbie to spray finishing, the project is going to a custom built wardrobe hutch, the dimensions will be 7’x6’x28”

HVLP systems seem to be the best, although I have no experience.

If you need a compressor anyway, this is a good reason to buy one.
Make sure you’ve got the proper filters in line to remove wter.

Earlex 5500 or 6000 HVLP seem to be good, lower cost systems.
